1949 - 2019

Brenda was the daughter of Rosalind Laurent and J.D. Robbins. Brenda loved to draw, she was a very talented artist. She enjoyed embroidery, cooking and loved baking treats for her family. Some of Brenda's other hobbies were doing word puzzles and reading. She was avid reader. Family meant everything to Brenda and she sacrificed a career in the work world to be a dedicated full time homemaker while her children were in school. She was always faithful in great daily packed lunches and she made sure that there was always a delicious dinner on the table by 6 pm every evening. Brenda worked off and on after her children were grown. She was an accomplished sales person in the clothing business. She was very proud to be a grandmother and always loved to spend time with her grandsons. Her favorite color was green, she had a ferocious sweet tooth and absolutely loved Elvis Presley.
