Brenda Wooden


Birth: March 1, 1965, to the late Mildred Anna Scott Jones

Work Life:   
Brenda worked 40 plus years in the banking industry, starting at St. Michaels Bank. She dedicated the last 35 years of her life to Talbot Bank of Easton, which is now known as Shore United Bank. During her long career she held many titles, roles, and responsibilities—each of which she performed with passion and professionalism. If you were a customer of Brenda's, you walked away with a smile on your face and the feeling you had found a new friend. She retired in September 2023 as the Assistant Vice President and Floating Manager of Shore United Bank.

Brenda loved to read, swim, play bingo, travel, and spend time with family and friends. The Bay Bridge Walk was something she looked forward to every year.

Tributes to Brenda Wooden






Brenda will be missed as a friend and as a leader with Frederick Douglass Honor Society. She loved her family and this community. I’ll remember her with a smile on her face and always a kind word

Brenda was one of the kindest, lovliest people I have come to know in my time working with the Frederick Douglass Honor Society and that is saying something as the entire organization is full of the best people around. When I was filming "Life In Talbot County: Through the Eyes of Frederick Douglass" she was looking forward to portraying Douglass's grandmother. When she couldn't do it she had Brie tell me of her illness so I would know why. One of the last meetings I had with her, she told me some of the plans she had for the organization, she was very optimistic for the future. She will be greatly missed and I hope we can carry her optimism forward.
