Dorothy Brenda Breidenstine, 84, died May 29, 2019 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many.
She was born April 10, 1935 to Reginald Eli and Gladys Mary (Thomas) Butcher in Swindon, England and was the third of eight children.
