Brenda touched many hearts and was always willing to offer a helping hand or a listening ear to those in need. She was an amazing cook, and she took pleasure in sharing her home-cooked meals with family and friends. She loved life and absolutely adored singing and playing music. She was always the life of the party when she arrived. She always greeted you with a smile and a kind word, and would be forever making you laugh and could always pick you up when you were feeling down. She was always there to listen, understand patiently, and give you a piece of her mind. She will be greatly missed by many, and was known affectionately as “Nanny B” to many kids that she has taken care of over the years.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.

Donations in her memory can be made to the family they can be dropped off to Wanda & Jackie Drake in St. Lawrence or Marie & Coady Edwards in Lawn; email transfers to
