Brenda was truly the most loving mom to her kids that I think I ever knew... every August for probably 6 or 7 years, when Caitlin and I would pick Megan up for the drive to catch the bus in Burlington for Joy Bible Camp, Brenda would be at once overjoyed and heartbroken that Megan was going to camp for a week. She would cry as Megan said goodbye, and I could see how much love was there between them. A beautiful love to behold. 🤗💗💕 Brenda you will be forever missed by all who had the good fortune to know you. To Meg, Marc, Matt, Mikey, Carol and Jamie~ my heart goes out to all of you 😢💔 but please know that she will be near you always 😇💕

I met Brenda at an audition when we were 19 years old and we instantly hit it off. She was beautiful, funny and a lot of fun to be around. We went on to enjoy many years of friendship and even though distance had kept us apart she was always in my heart. Rest in peace my friend. Love Yvonne

About 10 years ago i moved pretty much right beside marcs moms house. Thats when i met marc out on the street playing street hockey. From there our friendship grew to become best friends. I met his mom (Brenda), Megan, Matthew and Mikey not long into our friendship. Over time of continually being at their house. I grew really close with them.
I lived with them for a little while during a rough time in my life and Brenda treated me like one of her kids. She became like a second mother to me and i cherish all she did for me very much. She was honestly one of the most genuine, kind-hearted, loving and giving mothers I have ever known. She would go far out of her way to help anyone to whatever extent she could at anytime. You did the most amazing job raising your kids to be the incredible people they are today. You will forever be dearly missed. Thank you for everything you've done for me. I love and miss you like crazy already. I'll always be here to help support the kids anyway I can. ♥️

I met Brenda and her kids when I moved into my home near fourth Ave. She welcomed the kids and I to the neighbourhood and told me if I ever needed anything to let her know. She was the sunshine to our little community and the most kindest, sweetest person one could meet. I loved her smile, it showed me just how beautiful her heart was. My daughter Kate met Marc, they became friends and then my son Mike stole Marc and to this day they are best friends. Marc is like a son to me... My heart goes out to your family... all of you are in my prayers ... Trish ♥️

When Dylan went to College we had no idea that he would meet the love of his life, Megan. Megan's mom, Brenda soon became Dylan's second mom and our family's then became one. We are so very Thankful for our times together and we will treasure them always. Brenda is and always will be a Mom's Angel because of her warm loving mom's heart to her children and our son. She always demonstrated God's love to everyone that knew her and spent time with her. We will miss and love her today and every day, always and forever.
