Not sure what to say?

My sincere condolences to Brenda's family. Brenda brings back great memories, from our Yeshiva days throughout high school, at William Penn. Brenda was sooo funny and fun loving. Her incredible work for Harrisburg's Jewish community and synagogues is unmatched, and she truly deserves all the recognition she received. Her passing brings back fond memories of her late husband Ormand, and her sister- in- law Libby.

My prayers are with you Brenda. Please Rest In Peace
