Brenda Marie Burnett, age 58, of Laurie, died unexpectedly at Lake Regional Hospital on Friday, October 11, 2019. Born in Kansas City, Kansas at Bethany Hospital, and twelve years younger than her older four siblings, she by definition, was the apple of her families eye.

As a young girl, she would accompany her sisters on dates and as a mascot, cheered on the Washington Wildcats. Brenda would be described as a very hard worker who always took pride in her work and was a ferocious lover of books. She was a loyal friend and our family is grateful for those friends who helped her during her last days. Brenda had a great sense of humor and always appreciated a joke.

She is survived by her mother, Ivene Burnett of Laurie, Missouri; her sister and brother in law, Claudia and Woody Schindel of Lenexa, Kansas and sister and brother in law, Glenda and Ray Bond of Weston, Missouri and many nieces and nephews. Memorial contributions can be made in her memory to West Lake Christian Church in Laurie, Missouri. Private family graveside services will be held at a later date.
