Brenda loved her family gatherings and dinners with a good game of Rummoli. She had a passion for flowers, yard sales and good deals. She enjoyed her little critters around her home. In her own words she was the number one fan to the Toronto Blue Jays, old time country music, singing and dancing were also a joy of hers. Brenda was a kind hearted, peaceful person who loved all of her family and had a smile that would light up a room.
