Brenda Lee Dreyer

January 19, 1962 - May 15, 2023


Obituary For Brenda Lee Dreyer

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our mother, Brenda Lee Dreyer, on Monday, May 15, 2023, in Grande Prairie, AB, at the age of 61 years.

Brenda was the first child born to Ed and Jean on January 19, 1962, in Dawson Creek, BC, and grew up on the family homestead in Bear Canyon, AB, until moving to Fairview, AB, to complete her high school education. Following graduation Brenda met and married Tim and went on to have two daughters. She spent the next three decades in small towns in Alberta: Rainbow Lake, Strathmore, and Grande Prairie before she followed her heart to the West Coast where she resided until shortly before her death.

There was nothing Brenda loved more then being a mom. Her daughters were the light in her life. She was much more than just a mother though, she was a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend.

With a passion for gardening, she spent many years working in horticulture and became very knowledgeable in her field. She always took great pride in growing a beautiful garden full of flowers everywhere she lived. She also had a love for adventure and spent many summers traveling around with her family and friends. Brenda especially loved our family trips to the West Coast. She loved camping, fishing, curling, skiing, reading, beach walks, playing her guitar, singing, jeeping, bike rides, shopping, fashion, doing puzzles, and crafting, among so many other interests and hobbies throughout her lifetime.

Brenda made an impact on everyone she met with her contagious laughter and kind heart. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. We will miss her dearly. She was taken from us too soon and our hearts weren’t ready. Her memory will forever live on in our hearts and in our tears. May she rest in peace.

Brenda will be forever missed by her daughters Ashlee (Lance) and Celeste (Darcy); grandchildren: Jaxon, Finley, and Brixton; sisters Dawn and Glenda (Sean); as well as her nieces, nephew, extended family, and friends.

She was predeceased by her father Edward, mother Jean, and her brother Steve.

There will be a private family graveside burial at a later date.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date this summer.

    Ashley and Celeste. It is so awful that you have lost your mom, your life line and your girls core at such a young age like you girls. I have many, many wonderful memories of Brenda since I was a young teenager, such a big heart, big soul, a big laugh and a big smile and always big hugs. She has been in my thoughts since the day I heard about her leaving you all. I remember, I think, the first time going to your mom and dad's house- you girls were so little I was in my young teens, and they were such laughter and love and laughter and acceptance in the home. Her life has an impact on people that maybe reaches beyond what you know. I realize nothing like you and your families, but my heart does ache for her. The last time I got to see her was at Celeste's wedding- and still she was full of light and I remember and I am grateful I got to see her beautiful face and had a nice visit and a warm and old familiar hug. I know it feels like darkness now, but I know she will bring light to you and her grandchildren and will always. You girls will keep her l alive in spirit with your memories and stories with your children and they will know her in a different way and that will still impact them and I promise will still have an influence . Again I am so sorry, even though that is a weak word, but know she has touched many, many lives. I am thing of you Ashley and Celeste and Tim and the family ❤️

    Brenda was a true joy to be around. I particularly remember one time. Tim and Brenda and I were out at rainbow lake hunting moose and we had a very small boat with two moose to bring home ,the skies opened up and we were drenched, and there was nothing we could do but laugh about it .She will be truly missed. my condolences go out to her children and her family.❤️❤️❤️
