Obituary for Brenda Marquardt

Brenda Jean (Brooks) Marquardt, 48, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 9, 2018 at ThedaCare Appleton, following a second bout with cancer. The daughter of Roger and Alice (Bowers) Brooks was born April 11, 1970 in Green Bay.

Brenda was the middle of three children and attended St. Francis Hollandtown Grade School. She graduated from Kaukauna High School and went on to receive her degree from the University of Milwaukee.

On September 16, 1995, Brenda married Matt Marquardt at St. Francis Church in Hollandtown. They raised three children, and the family enjoyed traveling, camping and attending sporting events together.

Brenda was a born leader and entrepreneur, and found purpose in giving back to others. She owned Marq-It Design and Brenda Marquardt Social Marketing and Design. Additionally, she was a director and consultant for BNI, a member of the GK Inner Circle for out-of-the-box thinkers and marketers, and a mentor for Score Mentors – Fox Cities.

She was the Athletic Director and Social Media Director for St. John – Sacred Heart in Sherwood, active in the Heart of the Valley Chamber of Commerce, the PPAW, the Harrison Athletic Association Board, and volunteered for a number of charities.

In everything she did, Brenda persevered with faith, hope, love and gratitude.

Brenda is survived by her husband, Matt; parents, Roger and Alice; children, Nicholas, Koy and Ella; siblings Mark (Kris) Brooks and Connie (Kevin) Brick; siblings-in-law, Billie (Richard) Upton, Pete Marquardt, Paul (Alina) Marquardt, Andy Marquardt and Ann Marquardt-Schumacher. She is further survived by aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, as well as other members of her extended family.

She was preceded in death by her parents-in-law, Larry and Hannah (DuCharme) Marquardt, her four grandparents, her brother-in-law Steve Schumacher, as well as aunts, uncles and other extended family members.
