    Brenda was a real sweet heart. She always had a smile on her face and put a smile on my face. Brenda was very generous of heart and will be fondly remembered by me, as well as many of her coworkers.

    Wishing Victor and all of Brenda’s family comfort during this difficult time.

    Sorry to hear that Brenda passed away.
    She was a very hard worker and always had something good to say about her co-workers. Many times out of the blue she would bring in something special for us (a stuffed animal that reminded her of someone).

    I was very sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. Anytime I talked with Brenda, I was left with a smile. I always enjoyed her genuine directness, and her willingness to help you out. She will remain fondly in my memories of working with her. My deepest condolences to Victor and her family for their loss.

    Brenda was one of the first friends I made when I started working with CLS 18 years ago. She always encouraged me, and let me know that she was always cheering for me. We shared many fun moments at the foothills and the DSC. It was always nice to kid around with her at work. She was one of the few coworkers that I felt I could be fully myself around, especially in the beginning. She was unpretentious with a wonderful sense of humor and a big heart. I have felt her absence at work since she left, and it brings me great sorrow to hear of her passing. A part of me will always miss her.

    I was so sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was always there when you needed help with something and always had something to say that would put a smile on your face. She was greatly missed when she left the lab and always will be.
    My condolences to all of her family for your loss.

    I was very saddened to hear of Brenda’s passing. We went back many many years, to Calgary Medical Labs in fact. She was a great person to work with, fun loving and had a huge heart. She
    even left for a while to have an adventure in Kentucky I believe, she is and will be missed.

    I am so saddened to hear of Brenda’s passing. She made my first days at work full of life and fun. She was always ready with a smart comment, and I found her to be a caring and genuine soul.
    My condolences to her husband Victor and all the family and friends who mourn her.

    I was very sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. I worked with her at the lab, and as many have said, she was a kind, considerate, caring and funny lady. She used to call me “Lammy” when I’d walk into the prep room. “Hey Lammy….what’s up!” She always made me laugh. And she was the sweetest girl too. We would always find little chocolates hidden around our microscopes at Easter, or Valentines Day, or Christmas. She never fessed up to it being her, but I’m pretty sure it was! Nobody else came in to work that early!
    She will be missed, but will forever be in our hearts.
