The family provided some of the following information.

Brenda was born Aug. 20, 1949 in Toledo, Ohio. She met her future husband, Dale, while they were both in the Marine Corps.  Brenda and Dale were married Nov. 2, 1970 and recently celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary. Brenda left the Marine Corps when she was expecting her first child and transitioned into the busy life of a housewife and mother.  She and her husband traveled Europe and resided mostly in the western United States, including Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Washington and, finally, Kansas. 

She was a lifelong reading enthusiast, a loving wife, mother and grandmother of two.  She will be missed for her sharp wit and good sense of humor.
