Brenda was a bright light in the psychology department at SLU. My sincere condolences to her family.
Our deepest sympathies to My niece and Nephew Victoria and Derek.
Your mom was my brother’s true love. They’re love and devotion to each other and you both was wonderful.
As Past President of the St. Clair Beekeepers Association, I would like to express my condolences on behalf of our members to Brenda’s entire family.
Brenda was an enthusiastic beekeeper, and served our membership as treasurer of the club, and often volunteered to help out with various club activities. One year, she received the St. Clair Beekeeper of the Year award and was deservedly very proud of her accomplishment.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and that she will be fondly remembered by an organization that she served so well.
