Condolences & Memories (8 entries)
My heartfelt condolences to all of Brenda’s family! Brenda and I worked many floors of the Grace Hospital together. Our special connection was “the dogs”! I was the one who introduced a lucky little dog called Mojo to the best dog Mom in the world! Brenda’s dog escapades went from there! Rest In Peace Brenda & Mojo. - Posted by: Monica Buhay (Friend/Co-worker) on: Jul 10, 2019
Dear Brenda, may you rest peacefully. We shared some great times together, Eagles and Elton John concerts, a rainy camping weekend at the Folk Festival. You are an amazing nurse, compassionate and extremely meticulous. Always called you the senior whisperer, as you had a special way with the elderly. My sincere sympathy to your family, 🌸Connie Kerney - Posted by: Connie Kerney (Friend, Co-worker) on: Jul 09, 2019
My sincere condolences on Brenda’s passing. I worked with her at the Grace during the '80s & '90s & found her to be such an excellent coworker & RN. She was so knowledgeable & hardworking. Our patients received excellent care on her watch! She often talked about her family - the loss you feel must be profound. My thoughts & prayers are with you. Take care, Pat Yamada - Posted by: Patrice Yamada (Co-worker) on: Jul 07, 2019

I was in shock to learn of Brenda’s passing from a mural friend. I last saw her almost 1 year ago and she was on my mind to call for a long overdue get together. She was part of my wedding party 30 years ago and a dear friend and co-worker. My thoughts go out to her family of which I only know Karen and Doug well. Hold onto those great memories as will I and I will remember her always. ❤️ - Posted by: Barb Fletcher (Friend ) on: Jul 06, 2019
