    So sad to see this. We worked together at Creighton University in the 1980’s. We would stop by her family home where I remember meeting some of her sisters. Brenda had the greatest smile and laugh. I have fond memories laughing and goofing around while watching/doing workout tapes in our Jane Fonda workout clothes. She was already in the National Guard when I met her. I was quite impressed with her determination. Just last month I was thinking of her and seen that she had been living in Otoe. I thought I’d wait until the weather warmed up to reach out and hopefully laugh over old times together. Obviously I waited too long which I’ll always regret. Sympathy to her loved ones.

    So sorry to hear of this, Brenda was a great person and friend. She always had time to listen, or help. We managed to keep in touch thru the years and miles. Her family always meant so to her, she loved them all.
    She is with God and no longer suffering. Prayers to the family and friends and to her special friend.
