Brenda Blacketer

January 4, 1946 — December 7, 2023

Brenda (Trout) Blacketer, 77, of Mountain Grove, Missouri, passed away on December 7, 2023, near her hometown.

Born January 4, 1946, in Springfield, Missouri, Brenda was the second of three daughters born to Margaret Trout of Lebanon, Missouri. She graduated from Lebanon High School and moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where she worked as a buyer for Hallmark Cards for over forty years. In 1989, she met and married Ray Blacketer, and they built their home in Kansas City. After her retirement from Hallmark, Brenda and Ray moved to Mountain Grove.

Brenda enjoyed bowling and billiards, sang in her church choir, and was an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan. Important to Brenda was her faith in the Lord and service to the church. She also never met a cat for which she couldn’t give a home and love.

Brenda was welcomed into heaven by her mother, Margaret Dorris, her stepfather, Bardell Dorris, a brother, Joseph Dorris, a sister, Charlotte Jamnik, a cousin, Christine Wilbanks, and beloved maternal grandparents, Robert and Myrtle Carson.

Brenda is survived by her sister Kathy Trout, two brothers, Edward and Robert Dorris, two nieces, Christina Meyers and Erika Feltch, a cousin, Carmen McGehee, and godson Trevor Dorris.

Cremation was under the direction of Craig-Hurtt Funeral Home. The family is directing the memorial service held at Cornerstone Free Will Baptist Church. The family requests that any memorial donations be given to a local humane society or animal shelter.
