Brenda was born on July 9, 1949 and raised on the Fort William First Nation. She worked at the Airlane Hotel for a number of years, but her greatest passion was taking care of her husband and children. Brenda enjoyed bowling, and watching sports, especially hockey and baseball. She loved playing cards, Bingo, Crib and Poker.

Brenda's big heart and kindness will forever be missed by all who knew her.

She is also survived by her brother, Dennis McLaurin and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Gilbert Francis Boucher in 2005 and her parents Barney Dennis McLaurin and Virginia Bannon.
