Obituary for Brenda J. Calvert

Brenda J. Calvert, 74, of Mapleton, Illinois, went to be with the Lord at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.

Born February 8, 1947, in Peoria, Illinois, to Carl S. and Frances M. Ray, she married Willard M. (“Mike”) Calvert on November 14, 1967. He survives. Also surviving are her two daughters, Stacy Calvert of Peoria, Illinois, and Heather Calvert of Mapleton, Illinois, her two sisters, Delores Horn and Beverly Furlong, both of Brimfield, Illinois, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, her parents-in-law, her brothers-in-law, and one nephew.

Brenda worked as an administrative assistant for Sherex Chemical in Mapleton, Illinois, until her retirement in 2002. After retiring she focused on enjoying her “life of leisure” and being a housewife. Brenda loved taking care of her family. She also loved being a fur-mommy to her succession of precious dogs and cats.

Brenda was a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Peoria, Illinois.

A visitation will be held at St. Ann’s on Tuesday, December 28, 2021, from 4-6 p.m. A funeral mass will be held at St. Ann’s on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, at 10:30 a.m., with a 30-minute visitation before the service, at 10:00 a.m. Father Jeremy Freehill will officiate and burial will follow in St. Patrick Cemetery in Kickapoo.
