Brenda Decker


Brenda Decker, 53, passed away on Wednesday, March 25, after a short battle with cancer. Brenda was born October 11, 1966, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Mary Lu Graves. She lived in California until 1997, then proceeded to start a new life in Pagosa Springs Colo., with her mother, Mary Lu, and young son, Dakota. There she met her husband, Warren Decker. They expanded their family with a daughter, Danielle, and step-daughter, Breann.
Brenda started and ran a successful pet grooming business. She was loved by all who came in contact with her. Brenda was passionate about saving animals and wildlife. In her youth, she worked for the Wildlife Waystation, where she helped care for and raise mountain lions, among other animals. The Wildlife Waystation made a huge impact on her life, not only with the animals, but also the people she came in contact with. Brenda was an incredible wife, mother and friend to many. Not only did she put others before herself, she was loyal and most giving friend anyone could ask for. Besides her family and friends, her heart belonged all animals. Brenda will greatly be missed.
Brenda is survived by her children: Dakota, Danielle, step-daughter Breann, step-grandson Jaydon and husband Warren. She was preceded by her mother, Mary Lu. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Pagosa Springs Humane Society. A Celebration of Life will be planned at a later date.
