Brinca Baum

By Shannon Ensign-Spillios

I first met Brinca in the mid-70s when she and my brother Jim started dating.  They married a short time later, and we all were so thrilled!  She loved life – loved to laugh, cook, create beautiful crafts and art, and most off all, loved her family and friends (4-legged and 2-legged!).  Brinca came back into our lives 3 years ago, after a 35-year absence.  She and my brother have had the most wonderful adventures, traveling all over the country and exploring out-of-the-way places.  Her sense of wonder, excitement, humor and deep passion for life continues to inspire everyone blessed enough to have made her acquaintance.  “Today is the perfect day to have a perfect day.”
