Brenda loved life and lived everyday to the fullest. Brenda was a social butterfly, who never knew a stranger. She was an avid gardener who loved to be outside, tending to her flowers. Brenda loved anything involving outdoor activities; swimming, gardening, and bird watching were some of her favorite things to do.

She shared many memories with her grandchildren, especially watching and waiting for dragonflies, birds (especially cardinals) and making their fairy garden. Brenda loved her grandchildren more than words. She loved to have cookouts, sleepovers, campfires with the grand-kids. Watching her grandson play sports was something that brought her so much joy. She enjoyed shooting her BB gun with her grandson and trying to chase squirrels away.

Brenda loved to shop and go to garage sales with her daughter. She loved to go out to dinner with her husband in her ruby red car. Brenda was a woman with a kind and open heart, and she will be missed by many.
