A Celebration of Life service for 58-year old Brenda Sue (Faulstick) Plinke of Hillsboro Oregon will be Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 2 p.m. Pacific Time at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, OR. Brenda died at her home in Oregon.

Brenda Sue Plinke was born August 21, 1959 to Victor and Ida Faulstick in Emmetsburg Iowa. She attended high school in Emmetsburg and was student athlete at Iowa lakes Community College and transferred first South Dakota State University and then finished her nursing degree at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA.

She remained in the Pacific Northwest upon completion of her nursing degree, where she loved caring for patients and working at several hospitals in both Washington and Oregon. She met her husband, Ken, in Medford, OR and the couple were married at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Emmetsburg in 1987.

Brenda was an 18-year breast cancer survivor. Though the disease was impactful upon her life, it did not define her life. Rather, it became a stepping stone for awareness and hope. She was the inspiration for "B The Light", a support charity not only for breast cancer families, but any family that had various struggles.

Brenda was a light in the world, in both her professional and personal life; she was a beacon of compassion and love.

Brenda is survived by her husband Ken and their children, Wesley, Hayden and Chelsea, as well as her five siblings; Louise Sprague of Jacksonville, OR.; Julie Meyers of Newport, OR,; Roger Faulstick of Emmetsburg; Jeff Faulstick of Redmon, WA. and Steve Faulstick of Vancouver, WA.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation in Brenda's memory to: B The Light Foundation, PO?Box 192, New Ulm, MN, 56073 or donate online at:
