Brenda's Celebration of Life

Brenda Irene Purcell was born on March 23, 1963, she was a daughter, a sister, a mother of three boys and a wife to a loving husband. She was known for her motherhood, her sisterhood, her partnership, her friendship, her kind heart, her will to always help others, her beautiful nature and so much more.

As a family we wish to celebrate her life, share good memories of her and honour her by gathering, feasting and being together with those that she knew and had affected in a positive manner throughout her lifetime.

 Many people have asked us what they can do to help during this time, one of the things we feel people can do is to help alleviate the costs for legal fees, her cremation and burial as well as celebration of life ceremony through donations.

With this being a case of sudden and unexpected costs, if people are also able to help with organization of the celebration as well as accommodate food and access to a community hall or legion hall that would be at little to no cost please contact through this page. Please note that we are doing our best to remain fiscally responsible, while providing a dignified burial for our loved one.

Cremation and burial - $5000.00
Celebration of life - $1500.00
Legal fees - $200.00

Please note that any funds exceeding the incurred costs will be donated to a charity of the families choosing.

Kitchi miigwech (big thank you), please share and baamaapii (until later).
