Brenda Louise (Pyatt) Penno

Best friend and wife of Kurt, mother of Jeff, Jerrett and Jordan, daughter of Cathy and Bruce, only sister to Barb, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and friend to many.. took her shining smile and moved on ahead of us to a place without pain on the evening of July 31, 2008.

Brenda was born in Goderich, Ontario to Cathy and Bruce Pyatt, on September 25, 1966 and married her high school sweetheart Kurt Penno on September 8, 1990. Brenda enjoyed spending time with Kurt (or Kurtis as she called him) and their three sons sledding, quading and spending time together at the “harbour”. Brenda and Kurt were actively involved in the local Search and Rescue organization taking part in countless rescues over the years and in 2005 received the BC Search and Rescue Volunteers of the Year Award for Highway Rescue.

Family and friends attended a service to celebrate Brenda’s life on Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at the Golden Seniors Centre. Many thanks to Hindman Bowers Funeral Home.

Memorial donations may be made to the Golden & District Search and Rescue (GADSAR).
