Brenda was born in Sault St. Marie on July 20th, 1955, and later moved to Kirkland Lake where she began her career at The Kirkland & District Hospital working in numerous departments over the years.

The family would like to thank all the Doctors, Nurses, PSW’s, Physio and Respiratory staff at Blanche River Health for all their support, care, and compassion.
