Brenda was born March 25, 1943 to Darrell and Edna Hymas Eborn. She was born in the old Montpelier Hospital, which occupied the upper floor of a store building in Montpelier. She was the first daughter and third child in the family. At the time of Brenda's birth the family was still living in the samll, two-room log home on Lanark Lane. It was very crowded, but we managed to get by and Dad and Mom began to make plans for a different home. Brenda was a pretty little girl and was a joy to her parents. Dad came up with an original little song which he always used to sing to Brenda. It went something like this: " B-R-E-N-D-A, I sure love you today." I can still hear Dad singing this to her in my mind. The picture below was taken when Brenda was one year old and is the earliest picture of her that I am aware of. It was kept in Mom's Book of Remembrance.
Brenda as a young woman, I'm not quite sure of the age, but my guess is that it was taken shortly after she graduated from Fielding High School in Paris in 1961.
Brenda met her future husband, Dean, while they were attending BYU in Provo. After a short courtship they were married and have been happily married ever since and have raised a wonderful family which has brought great joy to them. Dean was born and raised in McCammon, Idaho.

As ayoung child, I remember being very fond of my little sister,Brenda. We would walk around the yard and the farm holding hands, exploring, and playing together for many hours every day
