Flory, 71, of Manheim, PA, beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, unexpectedly and peacefully entered into the Kingdom of Heaven on Thursday morning, January 14, 2021 at her home.  Born in Lebanon, she was the daughter of Dorothy M. “Dot” Miller Teahl of Palmyra and the late John E. Teahl.  Brenda was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Walter Ray “Junior” Flory, Jr., on August 7, 2020.


Brenda possessed a strong Christian faith and was an active member of Mount Wilson Church of the Brethren in Lebanon.  In addition to serving on various committees, she sang in the choir and enjoyed her role as a Sunday school teacher to the preschool children.
