    Sherry, ALWAYS enjoyed talking with Brenda! Had not seen her in a while. She ALWAYS spoke to me and made me feel like a person. I think of the mid 70's when when me, Annette, Brenda, you, Christie, and Aggie would drive around in my old 65' Impala! Hours and hours. Good times, good lady. God Bless you all.

    Deepest sympathy for the family. I worked with Brenda for several years at Dana. She was a great person and friend. She was about as real as they come and always told it like it was. She will be missed.

    Worked with Brenda and was neighbors with her for years, she was a brutally honest person and she didnt believe in mincing words or sugar coating anything. She told you straight how things were. I had the opportunity to live with her at one time. I'll not be forgetting her that's for sure. Dont see how anyone could forget Brenda. She was unique.

    Brenda and I knew each other from the first grade in Huron to graduation at Mitchell High School in 1972. We remained friends and had planned to see each other this September. Sad it won't happen. Go Rest High on that mountain! R.I.P. Brenda!
