Brenda Findlay Obituary

Brenda Elaine Findlay, née Tochor, born on July 11, 1962, in Esterhazy, SK, to Bert and Marie Tochor, was an inspiration of strength from her earliest days. As the eldest of four children, she embodied leadership and resilience, traits that defined her throughout her life.

On the family farm, Brenda learned the values of hard work and a profound respect for nature, principles she carried with her always. After graduating, she embarked on a career at Mosaic, where she met Rick, the love of her life. Together, they celebrated their union with a wedding in 1989, and were blessed with two children, Ashton and Eric.

At Mosaic, Brenda broke new ground as one of the first women to work underground. Her tenacity and capability won the respect of her colleagues, earning her a revered position amongst “the old boys” at work. Whether in her initial role underground or later in a clerical capacity, Brenda was known for going above and beyond, often becoming a trusted advisor and helper to her coworkers.

Brenda's life outside work was marked by a multitude of passions. An avid gardener, she created a backyard haven, inspired by her mother, aunts, and her grandmother Catherine Pollock, from whom she inherited a love for plants.

Brenda loved cooking and was always experimenting with new recipes, treating family and friends to her delicious creations. Her love for camping and fishing was unparalleled, approaching each adventure with enthusiasm and meticulous planning. Known for her "bloody plans," these excursions often evolved into spontaneous journeys, embracing the thrill of the unknown.

Brenda's infectious zest for exploration extended to her grandchildren, whom she adored. She shared countless adventures with them, instilling in them a sense of joy and wonder. In her home, the sound of little feet and calls of 'Grandma' were common, along with the unwritten rule, 'No spanking allowed in Grandma's House.' She also shared her love for gardening and cooking with them, pursuits that brought her immense pleasure and peace.

Brenda's role as the heart of her family was unmistakable. A devoted wife, loving mother, and doting grandmother, she was the epitome of strength and love. Her unwavering support and deep bonds with her family were the essence of her being.

Brenda is lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her husband, Richard; children, Ashton and Eric; grandchildren, Peyton, Zyra, Nixson, Taylor, and Hunter; parents, Bert and Marie Tochor; brothers, Bob and Eugene; sister, Carla (Hugh Davis); brother-in-law, Jim (Brenda); sisters-in-law, Debbie and Laurel (Ray); best friend ‘Mother’ Florence (Ed Raffey), numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and countless friends who were touched by her vibrant spirit.

Her life was a tapestry of dedication, love, and adventure, leaving a lasting mark on all who knew her. As we bid farewell, we carry forward her legacy of love, perseverance, and the joy of living life to the fullest.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
