My dear cousin, Brenda Lee, always remembered with fond memories of family get togethers at the Gregory house, and in the loving arms of her great aunt, Aussuntina Greco. My condolences to all in her aura as she rests in peace.

Brenda was a huge part of my life for many years before she moved to Parry Sound. For several years she was my valued parent volunteer in my classroom. She was my right arm. When my second daughter was born, she moved from my classroom to my home. And so began many years of her caring for my family, for which I will always be grateful. I will always remember her as a loving, caring, hard-working person, but most of all I will remember her as a friend. And so to her children, Rick, Bob and Teresa and all her family, may you find strength in the love and compassion that surrounds you. Her loss is immeasurable, but so is the love she left behind. May these treasured memories bring you peace and comfort.

I am so very sorry to hear about Brenda’s passing. I met Brenda through my work and although we never spent time together outside of my job we were connected on Facebook. I considered her to be a true friend. Brenda had such a big heart and loving personality. I truly believe that she is now safe with Russ and watching over everyone she loved. I will miss your cheerful FB good mornings .
Rest easy my friend ❤️
