Brenda was the oldest of 5 children and helped raise her siblings; she became a nurturer early on as a result, which showed greatly in her love for her children, grandchildren, and others. She enjoyed cooking/baking, sewing, and travel, especially to the ocean. As an Army wife of over 20 years she became an experienced traveler. She loved exploring new places and creating memories. She would help anyone she could. She was a respite care provider and volunteered her time to help take care of others. Her love for others will be her greatest legacy. To know Brenda was to love her!
