Grand Worthy Matron

Brenda Couch Thompson, Grand Worthy Matron for the Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, PHA, Jurisdiction of North Carolina.

I  joined Twilight Chapter #618, OES, Farrington, NC in November, 1980, where I served as Worthy Matron. In 1990, I demitted to Randolph Chapter #185, where I remain an active member.

My PHA Masonic affiliations include Past Most Ancient Matron of Boyd and Hodge Court #7, Heroines of Jericho; Honorary Past Grand Most Ancient Matron of North Carolina Grand Court, Heroines of Jericho; Past Princess Commandress Maria Court #1; Honorary Past Royal Grand Princess Commandress Tar Heel Grand Court Order of the Cyrene Crusaders, Jurisdiction of North Carolina; Past Loyal Lady Ruler of G. Wesley Allen Assembly #324, Order of the Golden Circle; and a member of Zafa Court #41, Daughters of the Imperial Court. Within the Order of the Eastern Star, I have served as District Deputy Grand Matron of District #25 and of the former District #10; Grand Hospitality Committee Chair; Grand Nursing Committee Chair; Grand Chaplain; Grand Associate Conductress; Grand Conductress; and Grand Associate Matron. I have served on many local and Grand Chapter committees.

I am married to William H. Thompson and we have two sons, Antonio and Brian; daughter-in-law, Felica; and two grandchildren, Alexis and Brian, II. They are my God given gifts and the loves of my life.

I strongly believe in “God and Family First”. I also believe that God has a plan and a purpose for our lives and if we follow his directive, everything else will fall in place.

Theme: “Love One Another”    
Motto: “Back To the Basics”  

I Corinthians 13 – For the present we see things as if in a mirror, and are puzzled; but then we shall see them face to face. For the present the knowledge I gain is imperfect; but then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And so there remains Faith, Hope, Love – these three; and of these the greatest is LOVE.

1 John 4:20 – If  a Man Say, I Love God and Hathed His Sister or Brother, He is a Liar; For He That Loveth Not His Sister or Brother Whom He Has Seen, How Can He Love God Whom He Has Not Seen?
