Hello, this is Thomas, Brenda's son.  I would like to thank everyone for your condolences.  I just want to remind everyone that this is a floating memorial. There will be no formal service, please come and go as you feel led.  I know that mom would appreciate your presence and I look forward to seeing you.  

Thomas Scott

Sorry to learn of her passing! May God bless the family during this time. We were neighbors the way the crow  flies.

Tommy Griffin

I was so sorry to learn about Brenda. We were close friends in Junior High. I'll never forget out pajama party at her house and our "nighttime event," which involved a little paint.

And she was my favorite person to spend time with at the first High School reunion I ever attended. I loved Brenda's humanity and her being so open and honest at the reunion, when we both told about our personal lives.

I'll keep my great memories of Brenda.

My sympathies to all of you.

So glad I got to meet Brenda and become friends with her  these last 2 years. She taught me alot and there were lots of laughs. She was the most kindest and sincere person. She will be greatly missed. Praying for Jack and the entire family during this time. Will forever miss her famous baking and that big smile she had. The stories she would tell of all of her and Jack's travels and the love she had for her two grandsons were in every conversation. Rest easy Brenda on God's golden shores🏖

I started work at Miller Brewing the same day Brenda did.  We shared 25 years of work life in which Brenda was conscientious, reliable, and FUN!  The world needs more just like her.  My heartfelt condolences to Jack and the rest of her family but my love, respect, and prayers follow Brenda as she steps into her forever life.  Godspeed to a joyful soul!

I was so shocked to hear of Brenda's passing.  It has been some time since I had seen her but I always had such fond memories of working with her at Miller, being at parties with her, and hearing her laughter at work.  May God bless and keep the family during this sad time but always remember all of you will see her again.
