Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Leo, Carol, Robert and family. We share in your sorrow for the loss of Brenda. Brenda has been part of our family for over 30 years and will be truly missed. We enjoyed many nights of playing card and board games with her and Leo at the cottage and going for long walks along the beach. She had a good sense of humour, a laugh that contagious We will miss you Brenda and we will keep you in our memory. We know will see Brenda again during the resurrection of the dead when we will be together again. Acts 24:15. - Posted by: Claire Colliou (Sister in law) on: Oct 07, 2021

  • I went to daycare at Elmwood where Brenda was one of my caregivers and a lifelong family friend. I am heartbroken to hear of Brenda's passing. I am in my late 20s now and she still messaged me often. We even talked about meeting up for lunch when COVID got better. I have such fond memories of spending time with Brenda and Leo when I was younger. I remember playing with their dog and going to see the movie Spirit in theatres. I remember buying books together. I remember drawing pictures with Leo as well. Leo, I just want to express how sorry I am. I have such beautiful memories of all you and Brenda did for me in my childhood, and I will carry those memories with me forever. Kayla - Posted by: Kayla (Family Friend) on: Oct 06, 2021
