Brenda spent most of her life in Minden but lived in west Texas as a child. As an adult, she lived in Baton Rouge and Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. She met Jim in Shreveport and was willing to follow him anywhere. She enjoyed spending her time helping others and playing cards or dominoes with friends. She was a little competitive! In the last few months, she formed a special relationship with some ladies at Mansfield Nursing Center. They were known as the “Golden Girls.”
