BRENDA ARLENE, April 22, 1950 – June 4, 2014:

Brenda passed away peacefully at St. Marys Hospital with her family by her side. She is survived by her husband Tony, daughter Tiffany (Darryl) Gower and two grand-daughters Taya & Keeli. She is also survived by her mother Helen, brothers Dan (Debbie) and Mark (Megan) plus her extended family Margaret (John) Corlett (son Kevin & family, daughter Jennifer). Brenda was predeceased by her father Bill August 26, 2012.

Brenda’s chosen profession was nursing, in which she excelled. Those who knew Brenda knew the passion and dedication she had for her job. She graduated from St. Pauls August 6, 1972 and started her career at St. Marys Hospital in Sechelt. In 1974 Brenda and Tony moved to Princeton where Tony had accepted a position with Northwood Mills. After a brief move to Kamloops they returned to Princeton where Brenda carried on her career as a registered nurse at Princeton General Hospital. After her retirement in June 2010, she and Tony moved back to the Sunshine Coast to enjoy their retirement years close to family.

Brenda will be deeply missed by her extended family, and many friends throughout the province and abroad. There will be a celebration of life on July 5th at the Legion, drop in from 1-4. All who knew Brenda are welcome.
