On August 15, 1975 Brenda married the love of her life, Donald Mack Dolina, who survives of the home with their three daughters, Jennifer Dolina (James), Jacqui Folks (Mike), all of Eudora and Samantha Mauricio (Renson), Lenexa, KS and eight grandchildren, Madison Saxer (Cody), Aiden Saxer, Trinity Stickley, Bret Folks, Ethan Folks, Garrett Folks, Jackson Mauricio and Keylee Mauricio.
Brenda enjoyed reading, her dog and her family. She was a funny, kind and loving woman who was loved by all who knew her. She could always be counted on to bring laughter to any event and would always show up when needed. As her daughters were growing up she could be found volunteering at their schools and in the stands at all of their functions. As her grandchildren grew she carried that tradition on and supported them with pride in all they did. By her side through it all was her beloved husband, Don. There was never a greater love story than theirs. She loved whole heartedly and with passion. She will be missed and cherished by many.
Brenda was preceded in death by her father, James Willis; two sisters, Anita and Karen; mother-in-law, Margret and father-in-law, Junior.
Brenda is also survived by her mother, Beverly Wyant, Eudora; sisters, Beverly Cadue (Kenny), Bonner Springs, KS, Sheery Regalado (Jose), Eudora, Linda Peak (Larry), Spring Hill, KS, Mike Willis (Judy), Pat Willis (Candy), both of Eudora, Beth Ann Krenger, Baldwin City, KS; and numerous nieces and nephews.
