Robinson, Brenda Sutherland, age 60 of Littleton, passed away on May 17, 2015.

She was born in Kenton, Ohio on August 10, 1954 to Neil W. Sutherland (deceased) and Imogene Runser Sutherland. Raised on a dairy and grain farm outside of Kenton, Brenda was valedictorian of her high school graduating class at Ridgemont High in 1972. She was a consistent participant in 4-H and the recipient of multiple awards. In 1972 she became the Hardin County Dairy Princess, then the Ohio State Dairy Princess, and the Ohio State Fair Queen. In 1976, she graduated Cum Laude from Ohio State University with a degree in Physical Therapy. On September 18, 1976, Brenda married Keith Lee Robinson of Ridgeway, Ohio, who she had been dating since sophomore year of high school.

Keith and Brenda moved to Arlington Heights, Illinois and Brenda began working at Northwest Community Hospital as a physical therapist, where she became the Assistant Director of the Physical Therapy Department. The couple moved to Carrollton, Texas in 1980 when Keith took a job at Frito Lay. Brenda began working at Lewisville Hospital in Lewisville, TX. In 1983, she gave birth to a daughter, Erin Elizabeth, followed by a son, Scott David, in 1985. She left the hospital to be a full-time mother after the birth of her son.

In 1988 the family moved to Wheaton, Illinois, where Brenda was active in the PTA, including serving as the President and President Advisor. She was active at Gary Memorial Methodist Church and involved with the Wheaton Community Women’s Club. In 1996, the family again relocated to Littleton, Colorado. Brenda began working as a para-educational assistant first at Deer Creek Middle School and later at Falcon Bluffs Middle School, both in Jefferson County School District. Brenda learned Braille and become a vision tutor, working with blind and vision-impaired students. She assisted a wide variety of students at many schools throughout her time as a vision tutor, a job she loved. She was involved in a book club and a knitting group.
