Brenda was born Wednesday, July 11, 1962 the daughter of C. H. “Chuck” and Katherine Ann “Kate” (Kugland) Brown in Torrington.
Brenda graduated from Wheatland High School in 1980; she participated in National Honor Society, Queen of Jobs Daughters, and many sports activities which included winning a state volleyball championship. She then attended John Brown University on a volleyball scholarship and later graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in business education in 1984. She was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and developed many great friendships which she cherished throughout the years.
Brenda was a great sports fan and supported the Wheatland Bulldogs, Wyoming Cowboys, Denver Broncos, and Colorado Rockies. She also loved young people, so coaching was a natural fit for her. She coached volleyball teams of all ages and enjoyed bonding sessions on the long bus rides. She developed strong relationships with the young people she coached, which in turn made for winning ways. Brenda also taught youngsters at Pioneer Club for many years as well. Many of the individuals she coached and taught have maintained long-term relationships with her.
Brenda was very involved in CH Brown Company, the family business, for many years. Her role as the Vice President of Operations was important to the continued success of the company.
