Brenda Paulette Lage was born September 23, 1944 in Hampton, VA to Paul & Betty (Mills) Robinson. She lived in Hampton, where she fell in love with Dick Lage. After Dick was discharged from the Air Force, they moved to Madison, SD and were married December 9th, 1966.


Together they raised four children: Kim Lage of Madison, SD; Jim (Amy) Shafer of Madison, SD; Troy (Shauna) Lage of Sioux Falls, SD and Tracy (Dayton) Williams of Brandon, SD. From those four children she was blessed with fourteen grandchildren and nine greatgrandchildren. Her grandkids and great grandkids were the joy and love of her life. She expressed this love in many ways. She was seldom seen at a gathering without one of her “Grandma” shirts that listed them all by name. She loved us all unconditionally!


She had a passion for living on and being near the water, music, water volleyball, dancing, her dogs and playing cards with friends.


Grateful for having shared her life are her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, her sole surviving sister Joyce (Rich) Wise, nieces and nephews, sisters & brothers-in-law and many dear friends.


She was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Pat and Sandy; her mother & father-in-law and her brother-in-law.
