Brenda Kay (Meakins) Crowe was born on February 19, 1953 to Jack and Wanda (Holmes) Meakins in Topeka, KS. She grew up in Kansas and moved to South Dakota as a young adult. She began working at Paul’s Shurfine in Colman and Flandreau and after many years, she started working at the Royal River Casino. Another career change led Brenda to meet her beloved husband, Jeff Crowe, at their mutual place of work, Hutchinson Technology in Sioux Falls. The couple also worked together at Daktronics, and eventually, Brenda was relieved from her duties due to health issues. Brenda and Jeff were married in Flandreau, SD on December 8, 2009. Brenda was involved with the local Jaycee chapter. She loved going to bingo, acquiring new pieces to her various collections, and decorating for the holidays. Those that loved Brenda will remember her good sense of humor, enthusiasm for life, and love for her dogs.
