The late Brenda Schlosser, known affectionately as Coach, has been honoured with a memorial at Philip Jackman Park’s baseball diamond in Aldergrove.
The field was dedicated in her name at a ceremony hosted by her friends and the Township of Langley on July 5.
Coach was an employee of the Canada Revenue Service for 29 years, where she worked her way up to a supervisory position and implemented several charitable and environmental programs. However, Aldergrove residents best knew Coach for all the outstanding volunteer work she did in Aldergrove.
She had been involved with Aldergrove Mixed Slo-Pitch as a coach and executive officer for many years, acting as President and Treasurer since 2006. Coach was also involved with organizing volunteers for Aldergrove Festival Days.
During her spare time, Coach also prepared tax returns for low income families in Aldergrove at no charge and for many years adopted families and collected donations for the Christmas hamper.
Coach had lived in Aldergrove since the mid 1980s and you would be hard pressed to find anyone around town that didn’t know her or know of her; she was always ready to lend a hand. She was a well respected member of our community, a loving mother, grandmother and friend.
Brenda is survived by her son Shane, his wife Stephanie and their son, Coach’s precious gift and her #1 grandson Logan, who all live in Abbotsford.
