Brenda Warner Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Brenda Carney was born on 17 June 1967 in Parkersburg, West Virginia, USA. She’s the daughter of working-class parents as her father, James, worked in a factory, while her mother, Sheila, was a housewife and focused on raising her children. Her parents died a tragic death in 1996, when a tornado hit their house in Mountain View, Arkansas. She has a sister named Lowa. Although born in West Virginia, Brenda grew up in Iowa.
Information on her educational background is scarce, but according to reports, she matriculated from Cedar Fall High School, after which she decided not to pursue further education but instead to become a US Marine Corps nurse.
Brenda Warner’s Life Story
After high school, she realized that her parents were struggling financially, and instead of furthering her studies, Brenda joined the Marine Corps, and was posted to Japan. During her service, she met her first husband, Neil, and in 1989 gave birth to their first child, Zachary.
Unfortunately, Neil accidentally dropped the baby on the head while bathing him when Zachary was just four months old. This caused permanent damage on Zachary’s left portion of the brain, which left him blind.
Brenda left the Marine Corps to care for her child, and the two welcomed their second child, a daughter named Jesse, in 1992. However, by that time, Neil and Brenda were no longer together, as she discovered that Neil was unfaithful to her when she was eight months pregnant. She left him and started living with her parents.
