It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Brenda was born in Halifax, N.S. on January 27, 1943 and passed away in Fort Saskatchewan, AB on February 9, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.
She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Gerald “Sherwood”, her daughters, Paula (Lyle), Heather, Julie, and Laurie; her sisters, Sandra and Linda, numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren and the family’s two loved mini schnauzers. She was predeceased by her parents Albert “Bill” and Mildred Tilbury and grandson Alec Forsyth.
Cremation has taken place. As per Brenda’s wishes, there will be no service. The family wishes to thank Dr Lewis and staff at Fort Saskatchewan Hospital and Dr Gilbert and staff at Rivercrest Hospice for the exceptional care shown to her during her stay.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Brenda’s name can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society – 9452 51 Avenue NW #201, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 5A6.
