She worked at Sylvania for several years and then at the Emporium Health Center for over 13 years. Most recently she worked at Rite Aid.

Things To Remember Brenda was a member of the Deeper Waters Ministries in Emporium. She loved the Lord, her family, and her friends with all her heart. She lived daily to read and speak the Word of God to anyone she could. She had a gift of teaching, and she especially had a passion to minister to women. She loved to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, and loved to spend time in His presence. She was the most considerate and compassionate person in the world- even reaching out and praying for others in her very last days. She was ALWAYS concerned for the well being and feelings of everyone around her. She enjoyed having tea and laughs with her friends. She loved anything Victorian and decorated in the like. She looked forward to going on beautiful walks and sitting on her porch. She was an amazing and selfless wife, mother and grandmother. Her youngest grandson was the joy of her life. She lived to love him and tell him about Jesus. He was her “Sunshine” and her best medicine throughout her life altering cancer journey. His smiling face helped give her strength daily.
