Brenda was a stay at home mom turned avid quilter with her best friend, Betty, owning a quilt shop together. After retiring, she moved along with her mother, Charlotte, to Bedford. They bought a home across the street from Ed, later learning Ed had said, "I'm keeping my eye on you!" Besides quilting, she loved crocheting, flowers and solitaire.
