Flower gardening, and dancing to any good music with a decent beat brought out Brenda’s best. But it was spending time with her children and doting on her grandchildren that showed her true passion. In recent years, her insistent kisses goodnight with her daughter, Jennifer, formed a bond that will remain as a cherished memory.

My sympathies go out to Brenda's family. Brenda will always have a special place in my heart for recommending me to be hired at Bren-mark back in 2012. It was a great place to work and I'm not sure I ever expressed my thanks to her. Rest in peace, Brenda. May the Lord bless and keep you. -Barb Maves
