Donna Sue Kinser Brzeczek
November 21, 1963 – May 15, 2024

Donna Sue Kinser Brzeczek, 60, passed away on Wednesday, May 15, in Raleigh, North Carolina due to the aftereffects of lung cancer treatment. She was born in Cuyahoga County, Ohio to the late Nellie Louise McConnell and late Edward Carrol Kinser and grew up in West Virginia as the youngest of five siblings.

Donna was an amazing woman with many life accomplishments. She worked as an operator at the Wendell Police Department where she discovered her passion for law enforcement and went back to school to become a police officer. She attended Johnston Community College, obtained a 2-year Criminal Justice Degree, and completed Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) where she graduated with honors as the valedictorian of her class. Donna went on to become the first female officer to serve with the Wendell Police Department and enjoyed her rotations on the bike route. Upon hanging up her law enforcement hat, she finished her career as the Safety Director for MCI (now Verizon) in Cary, North Carolina.

Donna bravely battled many health issues during her last two years with us yet persevered through these seemingly insurmountable challenges. She had a two-month record recovery time from her amputation procedure and accomplished her goal to walk Johnnie Mercer’s Pier in Wilmington, North Carolina within six months, all while contending with a second recurrence of lung cancer. Despite this, she never complained nor questioned God’s plan for her life and Donna’s quiet strength and unyielding faith sustained both her and her family through it all. She will be remembered as a fighter, a loving mother, grandmother, and sister, and a wonderful friend.

Donna was preceded in death by her siblings Vickie Kinser and Bill Kinser. Donna is survived in death by her loving husband of 30 years, David Lee Brzeczek, two sons, Kenneth Dolin and David Leonard Brzeczek, two daughters, Crystal Green Maynard and Melinda A. Meschko, one grandson, Centauri Martin, two older brothers, Ronnie Kinser and Ricky Kinser, and her two puppy dogs, Girlfriend and Sparky.

Condolences may be sent to the family at 2 Beefeater Lane, Wendell, North Carolina 27591.

A celebration of Donna’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on July 1, 2024, at the family’s home, 2 Beefeater Lane, Wendell, North Carolina.

Arrangements are with Strickland Funeral Home & Crematory, 211 W. Third St., Wendell. www.stricklandfuneral.com
