Brenda had four children, Raynard in 1960, Dawn in 1961, Connie in 1964, and Darin in 1965. Her greatest joy was being a stay at home Mom, watching her children grow and taking care of her family. She then moved to Maple Ridge B.C. and then to Calgary, where she met and married her second husband Jack Verboon.
