Brenda Mary (Conrad) Lohnes, age 72, of West Berlin, N.S. passed away peacefully at home on May 23, 2022 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. When anyone else would have broken, Brenda stayed strong and determined to live life to its fullest. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like.
Born in West Berlin, N.S. Brenda was the daughter of the late Jordan and Marjorie (Colp) Conrad.
Brenda was an active member of St. John’s Anglican Church in Eagle Head and a former member of the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. She also collected donations and volunteered for many organizations throughout the years. Spending time in her flower gardens, taking trips down south, especially the three winters her and Bob spent in Florida, camping and spending time with her family and friends were all activities she enjoyed.
Brenda will be remembered as a selfless, devoted Wife, Mother and Grandmother who always had a smile even when times were tough. Always graceful until God called her home.
Brenda is survived by her loving husband of 54 years Robert (Bob) , her son Robert Jr. (Bobby), daughter Kimberly, grandson Isaac, “grand – pup” Reyes and brother Michael (Marian) Conrad.
Besides her parents, Brenda was predeceased by her brother David.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS. Visitation will be held from 6 until 8 p.m. with a celebration of life being held at 7:00 pm on Thursday June 2, 2022 at Chandlers Funeral Chapel, Liverpool, N.S. No flowers by request, memorial donations may be made to St. John’s Anglican Church, Eagle Head, or the Canadian Red Cross. To share memories or condolences please visit www.chandlersfuneral.com.

I was so sorry to see this news of Brenda’s passing and sorry to say I just heard this and missed her service. I met Brenda soon after moving to Queens County in 1972 and enjoyed my every encounter with her. She was always so friendly, smiling and upbeat. It was always a pleasure to see her and Bob. To Bob and her family please accept our sympathy. We know the days ahead will be very difficult but she will always be in your heart and your wonderful memories of her will always live on. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Linda & Dennis MacKinnon.
Although I just met Brenda briefly while on vacation in Florida and visiting with Marian and Michael, I have been touched by the lovely service I have just watched through the funeral home website.
Really enjoyed the ” grey foggy days ” music and Michael tied that in to his heartfelt eulogy.
My condolences to those who remain to mourn and yet celebrate Brenda’s life.
