Obituary: Brenda Mary Oram

Brenda Mary Oram, 60, of Sturgeon Bay, died peacefully, Sunday, November 13, 2016 in the comfort of her home.

She was born May 27, 1956 in Sturgeon Bay, the daughter of the late Bruce and Adrienne (Jorns) Oram. Following her graduation from Sturgeon Bay High School in 1974, Brenda attended Cosmetology School in Oshkosh.

Brenda was a past member of the Tavern League.
