Brenda lost her brief battle with cancer on May 20, 2019. She was an extraordinary person and administrative assistant that touched the lives of many here at Mayo Clinic. Anyone that knew her knows how much she loved providing support to anyone and everyone inside research as well as the visitors that came through our doors. As much as Brenda loved people she loved animals more … especially cats :) The amount of time, money and effort that Brenda expended to care for homeless cats was truly amazing. Hopefully she has her farm now!
