Obituary for Brenda Sharon Marie Whalen (Amirault)

WHALEN, Brenda
November 19, 1958 – June 28, 2022
We are saddened to announce the passing of Brenda, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Soulmate of Brad for 44 years. Most supportive and loving mother of Mellissa and Tyler, and the best Nana ever of T.J., Keith, Emma, Austin and Colton. Sister of Irene Amirault and David Amirault. Will be greatly missed by family, friends and her Shih Tzu, Jasmine
Brenda, also known as “Switch” enjoyed her friends on Axe Lake. She spent April to November at camp pedal-boating, walking the road with Jasmine, enjoying tea time with her friends and sitting at the bonfire.
Brenda was our “ROCK”. She kept the family together and strong, providing guidance, unwavering support and sound advice.
She hosted Christmas celebrations at the family’s Axe Lake cottage, forming memories we will never forget.
We will miss our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend…especially the way she would immediately straighten things up after all of us.
Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Brenda’s life at Beggs Funeral Home, 175 Main Street, Thessalon on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 beginning at 11 am. Brian Mundell officiating.
