Brendainframe 1

McKINNON – Brenda D., 61, of Brooklyn, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in VG Site, QEII, Halifax, NS.
Born in Liverpool, Brenda was a daughter of Hazel (Allison) Fisher of Port Mouton and the late Earl Fisher.
Brenda will be fondly and lovingly remembered as a kind, strong, caring and selfless person who would do pretty much anything for anyone in need. She loved her family but especially her children and grandchildren. She also loved the ocean, walking on the beach, the occasional glass of wine but, most importantly, appreciated the little things that life offered. She was known by her family as the “most employable person” they knew, who enjoyed shopping, but rarely bought much.
She is survived by her husband Brian; her daughter Mandy (Fred) Holborn of Brooklyn; her son Chad Schrader of Chester; her grandchildren Taylor, Paige and Cameron Schrader; Hunter and Neely Holborn. Her sister Karen (Lance) Roy of Liverpool; her brothers Brian (Leanora), Robin (Rosalin), Earl (Melanie), Martin (Shelley), Donaldson (Felicia), all of Port Mouton and Edward (Evelyn) of Milton.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral home, Liverpool where a celebration of Brenda’s life will be held on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. A reception will follow the service and will be held in the West Queens Recreational Centre. No flowers by request, donations may be made to Queens County S.P.C.A. or to S.H.A.I.D. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Condolence from Sherri Pineo on June 17th, 2018 6:25 pm

My heart is broken that Brenda has gotten her wings. I moved to Liverpool in my 20’s and met Brenda’s daughter Mandy, who quickly became like a sister to me. Being away from family is hard but Brenda ‘adopted’ me like I was one of her own. She would express her concerns or dole out ‘moterly advice’ whenever she was around. She was a genuine soul and one that made the world a better place. She was so proud of her kids and their partners. She beamed when she talked about her grand babies. Mandy, Fred, Hunter , Neely, Chad, Taylor, Cameron, Paige and especially Brian her loving husband, My heart goes out to you all at this time.

Condolence from Curtis & Nancy Daury on June 17th, 2018 6:33 pm

We were very surprised and saddened to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was always a very quiet and kind person. Her grandchildren will miss her, but we hope they will have good memories of her. As we hope you all will keep good memories of you growing up in South West, it was a great place to be a child.

Curtis & Nancy

Words cannot express how profoundly sad I am to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. I was fortunate enough to see her on the ballfield cheering her grandson on last year. It was the first time that I had seen her in many years. She was exactly the same kind and caring person that I knew so long ago. My sincere condolences to the entire family. I cannot imagine your sorrow at this time. Thinking of you all.
