Mrs. Brenda Grace Riner was born May 10, 1958 in Swainsboro to the late Eddie Hall and Ruby Wilkerson Hall. She loved doing word search puzzles and coloring. Her kids and grandbabies were her world. She loved all of her family, and to know her was to simply love her. Mrs. Riner loved going to church and attending church events. Her faith in God was so strong; she lived by the saying “God’s got me.” Her smile was so contagious, and she never knew the word “no.” She will be missed by many. Mrs. Riner was a member of Mount Shady Baptist. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Riner; grandson, Pooh; sister, Ruby Ashley; and brothers, Eddie D. Hall and Derrick Hall.
