Michelle, Dawn and George, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. It was always a pleasure seeing her at the store back in the day. I know my parents thought a lot of her also. You will be in our thoughts and prayers

Condolence from Sharon Hobbs on January 21st, 2022 4:27 pm

I am so sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. I have fond memories of working with her. I lost touch after she retired. Hope that your wonderful memories of her will bring some comfort during this difficult time.

Condolence from Margaret H. Strain on January 23rd, 2022 6:26 pm

I am so heartbroken over the loss of you. I miss you so much already, Mom. I hope you knew just how much you meant to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother-in-law. You treated me as your own daughter, not just your son’s wife. I will always be thankful for the hard times you helped me to get through. My heart aches that I will never get to hear you call me “your Maggie” ever again. I thought you’d be with us a lot longer, but I know you aren’t suffering now. I love you Mom and I will always miss you.

I am just learning of Brenda’s passing. I worked with her, as a nurse. I will always remember Brenda for always bringing me coupons for diapers when my babies were little. So sorry for the family’s loss. Prayers of comfort for her family.
