strong testimony of her Savior and in a beautiful life after this one. She served a full-time
mission in the Anaheim, California area. She also held several callings through the years in
various wards; her favorites being long time librarian and relief society teacher. She enjoyed
family history research and doing temple work for those family members she found. A recent
goal that she was proud to accomplish was visiting all of the temples in the state of Utah.
Brenda spent most of her life caring for others and helping people in many different ways. She
lovingly cared for her father for many years after her mother had passed. She spent her career
helping people with financial matters such as insurance, retirement planning, and tax preparation.
She was always there to support a friend or family member in their time of need.
Brenda’s greatest joy in life was being an aunt. She spent most of her time, energy, and money
on her nieces and nephews, and great-nieces & nephews. She was always there as a “second
mom”, a confidant, a provider of treats, and a friend.
Brenda had a love for music & the theatre which she shared with many of her nieces and
nephews. She also had a love for all things chocolate and all of life’s sweetest treats.
