Brenda had a heart of gold and would go above and beyond for anyone she met without hesitation. She loved sewing, cooking for her family, and travelling, especially for volleyball trips to support her favourite girl, Alicia. She formed many special friendships over the last 40 years working in the retail industry at Kmart, Zellers, Target, and Dollarama. She had an immense impact on countless individuals and those who were lucky enough to have known her will always remember her generosity, tremendous work ethic and bright smile.

Brenda loved spending time in her garden and was especially proud of Alicia’s career in the teaching profession, therefore, in her memory donations may be made to help create a school garden at Cloud River Academy in Roddickton, where Alicia and Adam are currently teaching via e-transfer cloudriveracad@nlesd.ca
