In Loving Memory Of
Brenda Mary Scott-Barnes
1951 ~ 2022

Kerrs Ridge, NB – Brenda Scott-Barnes, 70, of Kerrs Ridge passed away peacefully at the Moncton City Hospital early morning on Saturday, February 19th, 2022. Born in St. Stephen, she was the daughter of the late Harry and the late Sylvia (Williams) Scott.

Brenda will be sadly missed by her loving husband Brian Barnes, her daughter Sylvia (Kirk) Wilkes of Ottawa; her brothers: Berkeley (Sharon) Scott of Vancouver and Robert (Sue) Scott of Kerrs Ridge; her sister Sylvia (Ed) Herron of St. Stephen; her two grandchildren, Thea and Max, as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her brother Harry Scott of Fredericton.

Brenda was a loving wife and mother, a dedicated daughter, sister, and aunt, and welcomed newcomers to the family with unforgettable hugs.  She received her BA and B.Ed. from UNB and met Brian while teaching in Bass River.

Family was everything to Brenda.  She looked forward to her annual fall trips to visit her grandchildren in Ottawa and enjoyed every journey with Brian just as much as the destination.  She provided a second home to her nephews down the road and helped to instill a love of books in all of the kids as she could always be seen reading, mostly science fiction and fantasy.  She also didn’t complain when the kids stole hotdogs from her freezer.  She loved working with her brother Robert, most notably in the St. Andrews farmers market during the summertime, where she was a successful vendor for almost 40 years. Brenda put her skill in knitting and crocheting to work, making gifts for family and for market sale. She was an active member of the United Church Women and the Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary in St. Stephen. Brenda will be profoundly missed by all who knew her.

”Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that they are happy.”  – Inuit Proverb

In respect of Brenda’s wishes, there will be no visitation and no funeral service.

  11. Sending my condolences to Brian, Sylvia, and all the family, and friends, who have are sharing the loss of such a good person as Brenda. I am so glad I had the chance to know her, for many years. Always enjoyed teasing her, and seeing the twinkle come into her eyes. She always ‘gave as good as she got’…with her dry, quick sense of humour. The cozy home, and beautiful property, which she and Brian created, on Kerr’s Ridge, was one of the most welcoming, peaceful places I have ever visited…with it’s Million Dollar View. Brenda will live on in the memories, of all who knew her…..

  12. My deepest Sympathy in you loss, Brian and Sylvia. She was a Beautiful person and a good friend. She will be missed.

  13. My condolences on the passing of a friend and classmate, Class of 1969. Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

  14. My condolences to Brenda’s family, she was a friendly person. I served her many times at the diner when she would come in with her mother and sister a few years ago, Heaven gained another angel,

  15. Brenda was a very special friend. We graduated together (SSHS) and we went to Teacher’s College together. We shared many Tuesday evenings knitting, crocheting, and talking about the week’s events at my house. We never gossiped, she never spoke about anyone behind their back. She had a special laugh and smile. She was the first one to describe my future husband to me. She knew him from school and I had never met him. She traveled on the bus with him and described him to me. I lost David six months ago and it seemed fitting they be together. She was my Matron of Honor at my wedding. She filled in for me at Back Bay Elementary School when my maternity leave popped up two weeks before planned and took the heat off of my erroneous calculations with my Principal. She will be missed and never forgotten.

  16. Brian, Sylvia and all the family…. Just learned of Brenda’s passing and so sorry for what you are going through. She was a lovely person and I am sure your great memories will ease your grief. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  17. With heartfelt sympathy on your loss. Always enjoyed chatting with Brenda. She will be greatly missed.

  18. We were very saddened to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was a lovely person and will be missed. Our condolences to the family.
    Take care,
    David and Jocelyn Groom
