To this union their children Randall and Taylor were born. The family made their home in Belmond. The couple later divorced. She later was united in marriage to Randy Hoffmeier. The couple divorced but still remained very close. Brenda worked various waitressing jobs in the area. She loved crafting and doing up her "special tree" to correspond with the coming holiday. Brenda was a great mentor and a dear friend to anyone who needed her. She was very giving and even gave her purse to a cousin that had mentioned that she loved it. She would give anyone anything that she could. It was hard to find someone who didn't love her. She will be deeply missed.
