Brenda was a great sister. We had a lot of adventures. Going to Nascar races, Gettysburg, Hershey Park and our trip to Hawaii in 1994. We sure enjoyed our time together and had a lot of laughs. Will truly miss her, but know she is at peace now. We will meet again someday. Love you always. Stan and Geni

I worked with Brenda for many years at WGH. She was fun, witty, and a good friend.
My dad was on the same floor as her at the Rouse. When visiting Dad, I always stopped to say hello to her and Mabel. Most times, we talked about the "good old days." They certainly were. RIP my friend.

Glenda, I was so sorry to hear about your sister. She and my mom worked together at Warren General. Even when my mom's Alzheimer's got bad, she would always remember Brenda. Sometimes she couldn't remember her first name, but she would say "remember the babies" God bless you Glenda.
