Brenda’s greatest pleasure was doing for others. Whether it was taking people out to dinner or taking kids to see movies at the ISU Theatre on Saturday afternoons. Brenda loved animals and Elvis. She enjoyed playing pinochle with family and friends. She loved hanging out with her nieces and her great-nieces and nephews. They all say, “Everyone should have an Aunt Brenda!”
