Brenda is predeceased by her parents John and Jean Greig and her brother Jan Greig. Brenda was born and raised on the Greig family farm west of Nanton. The “big hill” was the signature of the homestead. Growing up, Brenda loved horses and spent many days riding up the big hill with her sister and cousins. In her young adult years, Brenda was a leader of CGIT (Canadian Girls In Training). She was well liked and respected by the young ladies she was leading. Brenda had a love of sports. She was an avid curler and golfer in Nanton, participating in many fun Ladies bonspiels. On many a Friday night you could find Brenda watching the Nanton Palaminos. Brenda’s heart was full of compassion. She touched the lives of many boys when she worked at the Stampede Boys Ranch. She made each and every boy feel like they mattered. Brenda’s niece, Jackie moved in with her in 1990 as a teen and Brenda raised her as her own daughter. Brenda was so proud of her granddaughter, Alexie. People often commented that Alexie was the “sparkle” in Brenda’s eye. Brenda started a new chapter in her life with her soulmate Marvin 13 years ago. They especially enjoyed traveling, dancing, riding horses, moving cattle and all things Western. They enjoyed living west of Nanton and enjoying their view of the mountains and wildlife. Brenda was loved by all and will be sadly missed. We welcome everyone to share memories and stories of Brenda. Please send them by email to [email protected] .
