Born on January 7, 1964 to Yvonne (Campbell) Nadeau and the late Alphonse Nadeau, she had been a lifelong Southington resident. Brenda was predeceased by her love, Kyle Ancher.
Brenda worked as a bookkeeper with Patrick Baker & Sons where she made many lasting friendships. Her hobbies and interests included exploring architecture with Kyle, collecting antiques and gardening. You were always able to find Brenda in the yard tending her flowers and garden.
In addition to her mother Yvonne, she is survived by 2 brothers; Randall Nadeau of Meriden and Allen Nadeau and wife Lynette of Southington and her sister, Deana Simoes and husband Fernando of Plantsville. Although Brenda had no children of her own, she will be remembered as the favorite aunt of Melissa Simoes of East Haven, Nicole Nadeau of New Britain, Nicholas Nadeau of Berlin and Jordan Nadeau of Southington. Her namesake great-nephew, Brendan Cody of East Haven always brought a smile to her face.
