Art Creative 01


Brenda Kay Garibay

June 7, 1961 ~ May 7, 2018 (age 56)

Brenda will be deeply missed by her two sons Grant O Garibay and Simeon S Sinclair, sister Mary Michele Ehlers, father Lt. Col (Retired) John O Brown Jr., and many close friends and family.


Brenda’s warmth was felt far and wide by everyone she encountered. She always tried to see another’s perspective, help them achieve their goals, and teach others to look past one’s “cover” to see their inner beauty.


As an especially creative soul, Brenda enjoyed singing, performing arts, and stain glass to name a few. She explored the world through creative expression in an array of diverse mediums such as wood block carving, welding, clothing design,  painting, photography, and ceramics. She enhanced her skills graduating with honors at Norfolk State University, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts.

Memorial services will be held on Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 at 10:00 AM at Sierra View Funeral Chapel, located at 6201 Fair Oaks Blvd, Carmichael, CA 95608.
