Brenda had such a love for dogs. Harley Jenkinson, her German Shepard, was the love of her life. He came into her life on Mother’s Day, 2018. She was a little jokester, always cracking jokes on a daily basis. She was the life of the party wherever she went. She was able to put a smile on faces and fill the room with laughter by simply being herself.

She enjoyed playing a specific game on her phone called “Match 3D.” She went as far as level 7,000 while hiding under her blanket when she was cold. Some of the things that brought her joy in her free time were reading, word searches, sudoku, seek-n-find, and coloring in her favorite coloring books. One of her favorite books was “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Her favorite movie was “Friday after Next,” and she loved crime shows on television.

Brenda was also known for her awesome taste in music by some of her favorite artists including Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Jelly Roll, Drake, Prince, and Ice Cube. She loved all genre of music.

Her favorite drink was a medium blended almond bark drink from Dutch Bros. She loved pigs, and bees.

Brenda’s most cherished moments were spending time with her family and grandkids. She touched many lives and losing her is the hardest chapter in our family’s books thus far. Brenda was truly one of a kind person and is going to be missed so much by everyone who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Victor Basaldua, and a granddaughter, Angel Daniels.

Brenda is survived by her mother, America Cruz and her stepdad, David Cruz, Jr. of Arlington, Texas; her husband, Marcos Sandoval; two daughters, Bryanna Sandoval and her husband Dillian Hildreth, and Courtney Constancio and husband Joe. She is also survived by eight grandchildren, a sister, Judy Rodriguez and husband Rick of Tulia, Texas, and her brother Victor Basaldua, Jr. and wife Judynill, of Arlington, Texas.
