Sending my heartfelt condolences to the family. I will always remember and thank Brenda for being my 'partner in crime' in 1983, at a time when I really needed a friend. She was always there for me.

I knew there was something special about Brenda when I first met her. Through years of time spent with her and her family I experienced her ease of kindness, grace, and nuturing ways....She truly loved unconditionally and her commitment to family and friendship was an example for us all. What a Wonderful Lady! May you "Stiff ladies" find peace with what she so willingly gave us while she was here with us. Love and prayers to you all, Thom Lockhart
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Where does one start when it comes to Brenda. She meant SO much to me as a child and even more as an adult, as I could appreciate what she meant to so many. She kept her door open for me most of my life. Brenda was an amazing mom to her girls then to grandchildren and was fortunate to have been in the life of her sweet great granddaughter. She was so loved by a countless number of people outside her amazing family, which shared a bond that will never be broken. I will always and forever be grateful for what I had with her. Brenda, you can share those “Wide Open Spaces” with Jodi and Bob, pain free and at peace. ❤️ Keeping her and her family in my thoughts and prayers. All my love, Stephanie
