She was born March 1, 1954, to Maynard “Jake” and Betty (Berge) Enright. Brenda was the youngest of three daughters. She grew up in Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 1972. Brenda spent many years in her hometown of Austin, where she raised her kids. She was primarily a homemaker who loved to bake, sew, quilt, garden, bowl, thrift, listen to music, and decorate for holidays, especially Halloween. Brenda also found joy spending time with her grandchildren. In her free time, she volunteered and enjoyed meeting her friends for coffee at Watts Cookin’. She was active in helping organize class reunions. Brenda was a breast cancer survivor and had been in remission since 2010. She moved out to Fairview Care Center in Dodge Center in April of 2018 due to Alzheimer’s disease and to be close to her family.

She is survived by her son, Jacob (Melissa) Broskoff and their children, Poe and Logan Broskoff; daughter, Sarah Broskoff and her two children, Sage and Whitney Himli; two nephews, Theodore Paulson and family, Tony Enright-Montoya; and many family and friends she met throughout her life.
