Brenda A. (Beckman) Ljunggren, 80, of Shrewsbury, MA passed away 13 February at Umass Medical after a brief illness. Born in Worcester, the daughter of the late Elmer and Mary (Adamonis) Beckman, Brenda was raised in Auburn with her two brothers; the late Richard (Butch), and Kurt of Florida. A graduate of Auburn High School, Class of 1959, Brenda worked as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant at the Worcester State Hospital. It was there that she met and married Robert (Red) Ljunggren, and then moved to Shrewsbury where they lived and raised their two sons. They were married for over 51 years, prior to his passing in September of 2012.

Brenda loved living in Shrewsbury and was very involved with her town. She was a poll worker from 1979 to 2000, has been a Town Registrar of Voters since 2000, a Town Meeting Member since 1988 and was a member of the Shrewsbury Republican Town Committee for more than 30 years. Brenda also worked as a Staff Administrative Aid at the Shrewsbury High School and was a Sales Representative for the Town of Shrewsbury Cable.

Brenda’s greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren, especially summers at Cape Cod and boat rides on Lake Quinsigamond.

Brenda leaves behind her son Robert C Ljunggren, Jr and his wife Lynn of Shrewsbury, MA, son James D. Ljunggren and his wife Stephanie of Auburn, MA and her five grandchildren Jesse, David, Ashley, Samantha, and Hannah and several nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will be on Wednesday, 17 February from 5PM-7PM. Funeral services and burial will be held privately for the Ljunggren family. The Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home, 648 Main Street, Shrewsbury is honored to be assisting with the arrangements.
