Brenda L. Coombes, 62, of Manchester, NH passed away peacefully at home in her sleep on July 4th, 2022. She was born in Cambridge, MA on August 11, 1959 to Frances Jack and the late Warren G. Jack Sr. and would go on to marry her husband and best friend, Robert Coombes, with whom she shared over 38 years of marriage.
Born and raised in Cambridge, Brenda would spend most of her life in MA until she moved to NH after marrying Robert. It was in NH where Brenda would raise her children, who were the lights of her life, especially when she was given grandchildren.
Those who knew Brenda knew that family was everything to her, and that she was always happiest when surrounded by the people she loved most. Brenda was kind, loving, warm, forgiving, accepting and comforting, the quintessential mother. Brenda was a proud wife, mother, Mimi and friend to many.
Aside from being with her family and spoiling her grandchildren, Brenda loved to cook and bake as she received great joy from feeding her family. Memories of her stuffed mushrooms, red velvet cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies will not be soon forgotten. Brenda also loved to knit, and leaves behind countless afghans for her family to keep warm with in the future. Christmas was an especially special time for Brenda, as she was always looking forward to the next big family gathering. Above all else, Brenda loved her family immensely, and will be dearly missed by all whose lives she touched.
Brenda has joined her father Warren Jack Sr, her brother Warren Jack Jr. and her sister Theresa Farrell in heaven. She is survived by her husband Robert Coombes; mother Frances Jack; daughter Kimberlee Coombes; daughter Robynn Coombes; sister Lorraine Kearn; Grandchildren Mason, Greyson & Jocelin; as well as close extended family members and friends.
The Coombes family has requested family members and close family friends only to celebrate Brenda’s life on Friday, July 8th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Phaneuf Funeral Homes, 243 Hanover St. Manchester, NH.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Lung Association in Brenda’s memory.
