Brittney was my little buddy when she was little and I always thought of her as a Niece. She made me laugh awhile back with a memory of hers. Once while babysitting her, I taught her how to fold clothes. She was always willing to learn and had a sweet disposition. It has been such an honor to be a very small part of her too short life but hope she knows that there is an army of people who love her here and will forever watch out for her girls and family.

God wrap your arms around Joe, the girls, Pam, Jerry, Kelsey and the entire family and friends.

Every time I seen her at Wayne, she will always ask how I’m doing. I got really close with her this year(My senior year), but I’ve known her every since freshman year. We used to talk every day, every time I was sad, she always knew how to make me smile! I’m going to miss her so much. I feel so blessed that I was able to have had her in my life❤️
And my deepest ,deepest condolences to her family I will keep all of you in my prayers✨

Brittany was my Teaching Assistant. She was ready for anything that came her way (if you're a TA, you understand that many unexpected and even unpleasant things will come your way in a day). Like the day one of our 2nd graders got 'stuck' at the top of the jungle gym. Looking down from the top of the jungle gym suddenly made her afraid of heights. Brittany had to negotiate with the student for 15 minutes or more, trying to convince the kiddo to trust her. Yes, the student did finally trust Brittany, but once the little girl was on the ground, she 'lectured' Brittany on why jungle gyms are unsafe for playgrounds and that you can't just trust anyone. Haaa! Never a dull moment as a TA!
Though my tears fall, I'm so glad you are not in pain any longer. You ran the race well Brittany!

I remember she came up to me one day in the lunch line and asked if I had family that she went to school with. I said yea how’d you know? She said “well you look just like her and I remembered the last name ” ever since then...anytime I was sad it needed someone to talk too..she was there. She would even give me rides sometimes when I would walk home by myself. She was an amazing woman so kind and compassionate and funny

I met her at Wayne highschool she was one of our lunch ladies, I would always go to her line and stop at the front to talk to her. Even though I only saw her once a day she knew more about me than any of my teachers. I will miss her a lot.

I remember the first day I met her,at wayndale elementary. An we talk a little about ourselfs .the next day Brittany thanked me for just helping her out. She definitely was a joy to be around an she cared about every one I only knew her for a short time but that short time made a lasting impression on my heart.

I have not met Brittney in person but I talk with her through via messenger . When she was diagnosed I got her prayer cloth and me and my husband prayed over and sent it to her. When I was in hospital she checked on me and prayed for me. No doubt she was a precious beautiful soul. I was so sad to see that she has passed . But God has healed her and she will watch over her husband and sweet kids. Praying for this precious family!!

I met Brittney through her sister Kelsey whom I graduated with. We would bump into each other often at Kroger Marketplace and joke about the little kids pushing the baby carts around. A few times we met and she would give my girls things her girls had outgrown. She was a very generous and sweet woman. She would always remind me of what a good mother I was when she saw me or commented on my girls pictures and I always thought that was so nice of her. She was the most amazing mom herself so it was definitely a compliment coming from her. I will miss seeing all of her craft ideas and videos of her and her girls around the table unboxing toys or making slime. She was definitely the fun/hands on mom all the other moms admired.

Met Brittney through my granddaughter Macy. Brittney took Macy to school and always included her in her and her girls fun times. I appreciated that especially taking her in the mornings ! Macy even says Brittney was like a second mother to her. I had the privilege of taking Brittney to treatments a few times. Thank you for sharing that with me Brittney!
Hard going past your house knowing you're not there to watch everyone!
Love your girls Brittney and will be spending time with they and Macy!!!!

I went to high school with Brittney, but she was someone that I got to know more as an adult. We had a habit of running into each other everywhere. She was always the first person to offer advice or support whenever it was needed. I will miss our countless hour long walmart aisle conversations!! Brittney was such a light in this world! I won't ever be able to understand why she was taken from this world so soon! I know her light will always be shinning through her girls! All my love goes to her family!
