Brenda attended local schools before eventually moving to Rockland after meeting her husband, Kurt. Together they enjoyed 32 years of marriage and raised two Border Collies, Cody and Mya. Brenda worked as a devoted CNA at Penobscot Bay Medical Center for many years. She had a love of gardening, going to the local fairs with her husband to watch the tractor pulls, and camping in the summer at Lily Bay State Park with her husband and grandchildren, Ashley and Dustin. Brenda was a great cook, and if you were lucky, you were able to try her famous pickled beets and bread and butter pickles.
Brenda spent her final years living in Camden with her daughter, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, Trey, Adalyn, and Amelia. Brenda loved spending the majority of her time with her special Mimi (Amelia) and playing a variety of activities, their bond was like no other.
