BRISTOL — Brenda Lee Chang, 74, died Wednesday, March 13, 2019, at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia.
Brenda was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, the daughter of Norman and Madolyn (Floyd) Putnam.
Brenda earned a bachelor of science degree in education and then went on to teach and serve in Africa and Taiwan while in the Peace Corps. She worked in Hawaii and then Guadalahara, Mexico, before settling in Bristol with her family.
Brenda’s family was important to her and she devoted her time to her daughters and grandchildren. She also spent countless hours serving at church and sharing Jesus’ love. Her faith was infallible and we know that at this time she is present with her Lord.
