She was very talented with crafts and crocheting. She greatly enjoyed being a grandmother to her grandsons, and she also loved Monday night football.

She will be deeply missed by her husband Dale of the home, daughter and son-in-law Tiffany and Michael Baxter, of Eudora; son Kevin Long of Topeka; four grandsons Michael-Shayne & wife Britani, Peyton, Drayke, and Sylus, three sisters Frances Macey of Lee’s Summit, MO; Joyce Massey and Patricia Dardis both of Eudora; one brother Mike McConkey of Wamego; three nieces, and five nephews. ”Brenda, your wings in heaven were ready, but our hearts were not.”
