After a long and courageous battle with several health challenges, Brenda ascended May 22, 2018, in Hudson, Fla., near where she’d resided for a time with her brother and sister-in-law.

Left to celebrate her extraordinary life and legacy is Brenda’s devoted family: her brother, William (Bill) Borden, sisters-in-law Cassandra Borden and Marie Wells, brother-in-law James Schofield, aunt Emmaline Johnson, nieces and nephews Brenda Borden-Oglesby, Bruce, Paula, Kevin, William III, Kai, Kimberly, Keron and Crystal Borden and Miguel Benjamin and cousins Barbara Richey and Horace Johnson Jr. Also left to cherish Brenda’s love and legacy is her extended family of grand and great nieces and nephews, her Rancho LaPuerta sisters and many other friends—all of whom she considered family.
