In Memory of

Brenda Edwards

July 9, 1970 – November 3, 2015
Blaine, Minnesota

Brenda Edwards (nee Beetner) was born and raised in Altoona, Iowa; graduating and moving to the Twin Cities to attend Bethel University where she graduated in 1992. Brenda was married to Jon in 1992 and in 1998 she left Wells Fargo to stay home and start a family. Nothing brought more joy and satisfaction to Brenda than being a stay-at-home mom, raising her two children; Emily and Madeline.

Here’s to your bright eyes
Shining like fireflies
These are my souvenirs
The memory of a lifetime….

– Switchfoot, “Souvenirs”

Brenda was known for her love of reading, travel, cards, trying new restaurants, time with friends and family, her cats and of course…..Diet Coke. But it is the unshakable faith and unwavering hope she so calmly and courageously displayed in 2015 that those closest to Brenda will long remember her for.

Loving and missing you forever,

Jon, Emily and Madeline
