Brenda Stone (November 19, 1954 in
Memphis, Tennessee– November 21, 1996 in Memphis) is an American model and actress. Under the name Gail Stanton, she was " Playboy" magazine's Playmate of the Monthfor its June 1978 issue. Her centerfoldwas photographed by David Chan.
Brenda changed her name for "Playboy" because her father was a deacon at a local
Southern Baptistchurch and she wanted to spare him any undue embarrassment. As Gail, she first posed for the magazine for the April 1977 pictorial "The Girls of the New South." She had a career as a computer programmer in addition to her modeling assignments, but she also had an active career with "Playboy", both as a model and doing promotions. She did the same for Anheuser-Busch- she was "Miss Michelob Light" - and also did public relations work for the 1982 World's Fairin Knoxville, Tennessee.
Stanton died two days after her 42nd birthday, on November 21, 1996 of complications from a blockage to her colon.
