Brenda was born January 13, 1943, in Pike County, KY, to Russell and Emma (Whaley) Hager. She graduated from Belfry High School in 1962. On October 13, 1962, she married the love of her life, Winifred A. “Winnie” Hatfield in Michigan City, IN, making their home in the New Buffalo, MI area. Brenda was a woman of God and was very involved in her church at Full Gospel House of Deliverance where she taught Sunday School for many years. She was known for her life of selflessness and servitude, always there for anyone who needed it. Even through her sickness she never wavered in her faith, remaining steadfast, her life a testimony to Jesus. She enjoyed visiting Kentucky where she grew up, and liked to cook and bake, and was known for her many recipes. Most of all she was a loving mother and grandmother who loved spending time with her family and church family. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

Brenda is survived by her children, Sheri (Don) Peterson of Bridgman, MI, Russ Hatfield of Michigan City, IN, and Todd (Tanja) Hatfield of Union Pier, MI; grandchildren, Derek Peterson of Bridgman, MI, Erika (Tyler) Anthony of Granger, IN, Daniel Hatfield of Laporte, IN, Joseph Hatfield of Laporte, IN, Jason Hatfield, Josiah Hatfield, Joshua Hatfield, Justin Hatfield and Judah Hatfield all of Union Pier, MI; siblings, Charley Hager of Columbus, OH, Viola (Joe) Slone of Louise, KY, Melvin Hager of Michigan City, IN and Faye Maynard of Athens, GA; and numerous nieces and nephews that she loved greatly.
