Brenda was a lover of life.  In her own words, she had too many interests to tell but a few were: reading, writing, camping, swimming, and walking in the woods and mountains.  She enjoyed Native American culture.  She also wanted to be a help to those who needed it.  Above all, she loved to dance. It was her favorite thing to do.   As she said “Dancing… love it, love it, love it.” You could always find Brenda up front if a good band was playing.
