In Brenda’s life she was a Waitress at Uncle Andy’s Cow Palace, proud owner of the Darling Shop which she cut and color many Friends and Relatives hair, and worked many years at the Palatine Post Office where she retired.

Brenda was always seen going out with friends and exploring new experiences while driving her VW Bug with the famous “Eyelashes”.

Her family and friends will truly miss her but she will be remembered by the passion she had of seeing her large family and friends together.

In lieu of flowers, memorials would be appreciated to the American Cancer Society at
