Brenda Stover Obituary

Surrounded by her loving family, Brenda Louise “Ream” Stover entered into heaven on November 1, 2023.  Born November 23, 1955, in Bellefonte, Brenda was a daughter of the late Malvin P. and Pauline I. “Burd” Ream.  She was a 1973 graduate of Penns Valley High School.  She went on to attend Hagerstown Business College where she attained an Associate Degree in Health Information Technology.  On December 3, 1977, Brenda married the love of her life, James A. Stover III, who survives.

In addition to her husband, Brenda is survived by two sons, Eric J. Stover (Julie) of Boalsburg and Adam J. Stover (Sara) of Centre Hall; siblings, Bonita R. Debrasky (Stanley) of Aaronsburg, Beth Ann Pryor (Richard) of Fayetteville, Ronald P. Ream (Candy) and Randy A. Ream, both of Aaronsburg.  Also surviving are four grandchildren, Eliza, Otis, Owen and Alivia, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Brenda was preceded in death by her twin siblings, Karen and Keith. 

To know Brenda was to love her.  Brenda loved life and adventure, like camping in her Minnie Winnie, cruising with the Valley crew, crocheting, shopping trips with her best friends, sisters weekend trips, Ream Family vacations, and European road trips with her family.  For over 30 years, Brenda taught Health Information Technology aka Medical Records at South Hills Business School and was so proud and loyal to her work family.  Brenda was an amazing wife, mother, sister, and friend but more than anything she was an incredible grandmother.  She loved taking her grandchildren stomping in the creek, picking raspberries, and crafting amazing artwork.

Family and friends will be received on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, from 9:00 am -11:00 am at St. Peter’s UCC in Aaronsburg.  The Celebration of Life service for Brenda will follow at 11:00 am with Pastor Teresa Hockenberry officiating.  Brenda will be laid to rest in Fairview Cemetery.  Contributions in her memory to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer can be made to the Lustgarten Foundation at
