Brenda E. (Snelling) Sanborn


Brenda E. (Snelling) Sanborn, 60, passed away peacefully on Dec. 18, 2021, in her home. Brenda was born on Nov. 19, 1961, the daughter of Charles and Marilyn (Davis) Snelling.

Brenda excelled at everything she put her heart to. In June of 2021, she received her M.A. certificate that she studied very hard for, and she even considered going back to school to become a nurse after completing her certification. She just loved the medical field and was great at it.

Brenda was a caring woman who always wanted to help others and that led her to volunteer her time at local food pantries. She loved being a Mimi to her grandchildren and spending time with them. She loved animals, sewing, gardening, bird watching, listening to music from oldies to classic rock and she enjoyed collecting books, even if she didn’t always read them!

Brenda will be missed by her husband of 22 years, Brian Sanborn; her daughters, Bobbi and Cale Roberts and Holli and Justin Finkle; grandchildren, Kiara, Landon, Kevin, Bowen, Briella and Gwendolyn and her brothers, Chuck and Glenn Snelling. In addition to her parents, Brenda was predeceased by a sister, Linda Cormier.

Honoring Brenda’s wishes, there will be no services at this time.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, where online condolences may be shared:
