Denise Gay Brand Boulay, 46, South Carolina

Denise Gay Brand Boulay, 46, wife of Daniel Allen Boulay, died April 17, 2014, at her residence.

Born Sept. 18, 1967, in Franklin, she was the daughter of the late Edward Charles Brand and the late Barbara Louise Hinton Brand. She was a born-again Christian who loved spending time with her crepe myrtles, trumpet vines and maple trees. Her landscape was specifically designed to attract hummingbirds and other wildlife.

She enjoyed hours of peace in her garden. One of her favorite places to visit was Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania (an old DuPont Estate made into a park), flowers and trees everywhere. She greatly enjoyed gardening, cooking and taking care of her home. A strong love of family kept her close to them all. A bit of a prankster, especially around Christmas, we were always careful opening gifts from her as a surprise may lurk inside.

She is survived by her husband of Middletown, Del.; a sister, Suzanne Davis, and two brothers, Dale Brand and David Brand, all of Brown County; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Roy Brand and Jeffrey Brand.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Monday, April 21, 2014, in the chapel of Stephens Funeral Home with the Rev. Dr. Gordon Reed and the Rev. J. Marcus Van Vlake officiating. Burial will follow in Summerton Evergreen Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Dale Brand, David Brand, Jonathan Nichols, Marshall Nichols, Boo Humphries and H. D. Smith III.

Visitation will be from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 20 at Stephens Funeral Home.

Memorials can be made to Reasonable Hope Ministry, P.O. Box 26, Gable, SC 29051; Christian Literature Publication and Distribution; or to Harvest Community School, P.O. Box 21, Summerton, SC 29148 Primary Christian Education.

Arrangements were made by Stephens Funeral Home & Crematory.
