June 2 1948/ Nov 21/2008
Brenda bravely and peacefully went to Valhalla the morning of Friday Nov 21 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Born and raised in Gimli Manitoba. She moved to the north island in the 70s with family and then stayed in the Comox valley. Met her future husband Randy at the fish, they married and remained in the Campbell River area ever since.
She worked as a chef by trade for many years, and had been happily retired for quite a number of years allowing her lots of time for as she put it “resorting” ,and allowing her time together with her husband Randy. She enjoyed painting and hiking or walks depending on the day.
Brenda will be sadly missed by her daughters Renee and Christa, sister Diane ,brothers Jack, Kurt and Ronald, grandson Reese and her loving husband Randy , along with many others whose lives she touched.
A family memorial will be held on Hornby Island and Gimli Manitoba.
The family would like to thank all those who supported her, gave assistance and helped her this last year. She always stated to love and to be loved brought a warmth and richness to her life that nothing else could ever match. The world will be poorer without her.
