Brenda went to be with her loved ones in heaven.  She was a beautiful, caring, kind and thoughtful person.  She loved to relax at home in her pj’s and stay warm with a cup of coffee and a good book or game and as she said “I’m set”.  She loved her family dearly, missed her mom and daughter tremendously.  She loved her son and oldest granddaughter Aliyah and her grandchildren so much.
