Brenda was born the baby of the family on February 19, 1963 in Waco to Willie and Lorene Rueter Sandhoff. She grew up and attended school in Robinson until High School level when she then transferred and graduated from Gatesville in 1981. She married Buddy Lam on April 26, 1985 and they started their family and life together in Gatesville. She worked several different jobs until finding her accounting position at Kalyn-Siebert in July 1998 where she has worked for 23 years.
Brenda lived a fulfilled life. She brought a giving heart and joy wherever she went. Brenda loved to go camping with her family and spend time with her sweet grand babies, those babies were her world. She loved all her furbabies as well. There wasn’t an animal around that she didn’t try to love on, including the deer at the campground. She was the rock to our family and will be greatly missed.
