Brenda was a dear person who had a heart of gold. She did many kindnesses for people who needed her through her friendships, and much of her kind help was never known by others. She helped quietly when she knew someone was hurting. She was very smart and one of the nicest people I knew in all the years of real estate. And she had a great sense of humor to share fun times with and laughed a lot. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. I’m glad I had opportunity to know her, learn from her, and watch her make our world of real estate in Gaston County a better place because she cared about her clients, her friends and fellow Realtors®️. She will be greatly missed by all of us who had the honor of knowing her. My sympathies to each one of her beloved family members and friends.She was so proud of her family and loved you dearly.♥️

Brenda was a dear sweet woman who loved life. Her beautiful smile was contagious. I have so many wonderful memories of spending time with her and her children when I was younger. She always made me feel welcome and part of the family. I will miss her, but I know we will meet again one day in heaven.
