Bullhead City, AZ, and Lee
- Brenda M. Andreski, 67, of Lee, ME, and Bullhead City, AZ, passed away July 11, 2017 with her adoring husband and family by her side. Born in Belfast, ME, June 28, 1950, she was the daughter of Chester M. Trundy Sr. and Nancy (Boudreau) Trundy Fitzgerald.
Brenda spent her childhood growing up in Swanville, where she would continue to raise her own family. Her primary focus was on her children and grandchildren, dedicating her life to them. Everyone that knew Brenda would say that she never had a bad word to say about anyone. She had a way of seeing the good and beauty in everyone and always had a positive outlook in all situations. She loved caring for people, whether it was during her time waitressing at the Hide-A-Way Diner, those she looked after in-home healthcare, or just her everyday care and wellbeing of her family and friends.
Brenda and Jesse loved spending time in Maine during the summer and wintering in Arizona. Family and friends often traveled to one home or the other to spend time with them, sometimes flying across the country for a visit. Brenda was drawn to people as they were to her. She had a way of making people feel comfortable around her and would make friends with whomever and wherever her travels took her. She had a gift for showing love and affection to everyone.
Brenda's children and grandchildren remember her passion for water, swimming and the many hours spent playing at the beach. She loved and cherished the times she spent at her son and daughter's camps, while making memories that will last in their hearts forever.
She will always be remembered as a very special person in all our hearts and will forever be missed.
