Brenda Klein Obituary
Brenda Klein was born June 17, 1947 in Bakersfield, California. She lived in Bakersfield her entire life and passed away Monday, December 15th, at her home.
Brenda is preceded in death by her parents Sarah and Clem Humes. She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Marlowe Klein, brother Larry Humes, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Buck and Hilda Klein and Stan and Shelley Klein, as well as many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Brenda contracted polio at the age of 5, and lived with her condition as a survivor, not a victim. She was not defined by her illness but battled it with grace and dignity. Brenda worked for Bank of America for approximately 29 years and then assisted in running her husband's business, Kool Auto Air & Repair. She loved collecting antiques and watching old movies. She loved all animals and picked up many strays over the years. She was a very loving and strong willed woman and she will be missed tremendously.
Services will be held Monday, December 22nd, at Hillcrest Memorial Park & Mortuary at 10am in the chapel, followed by a graveside service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the SPCA in Brenda's name.
