The couple traveled the US extensively, and also wintered in AZ for several years, where they enjoyed hiking and panning for gold. Brenda loved fishing, hunting, and cooking; her specialty was her Wild Rice Soup. She was loving, friendly, strong, courageous, and a free spirit who was proud of her Ojibwe heritage. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Brenda is survived by her brothers, Tyrone Nehring of Grand Portage, Eugene Swartz of Swatara, Duane Swartz of Grand Portage; and many extended family members and friends. She was preceded by her parents; and loving husband of 20 years, Paul.
