Brittany Jade Moss


With grieving hearts we share the passing of our precious
daughter, sister, niece, and granddaughter Brittany Jade Moss on January 17, 2024. She left this world to begin her heavenly walk, surrounded by God’s Great Love, Peace and Joy.

Brittany was born on September 8, 1984, in Edmonton Alberta. As the first born , she brought sweet joy and laughter to her parents, Laurie and Jim. In the first years of her life she became big sister and loved caring for her baby Jordan. South Edmonton was home until 1991, when Brittany moved with her mom and sister, first to north Edmonton and then settled in St Albert where school years and treasured friends saw her completing high school at Paul Kane High School in 2002.

Brittany was born with the love to dance and starting classes at a very young age. She grew to become an accomplished dancer with the well known Ukrainian Volya ensemble from Edmonton. Brittany had always been a loyal and hard working employee and her presence of light and laughter was enjoyed by many with positions both with finance companies and the City of Edmonton.

Summer was Brittany’s favourite time of year. Having family in British Columbia, many a holiday was spent at the beaches and lakes under the rays of the sun. In her adult years she frequently visited Mexico and dreamed one day of moving somewhere warm.

Brittany and her sister Jordan so enjoyed their ‘Moss’ days with their father Jim and looked forward to spending time with his family and friends. Little sister Julia was born into Britt’s biggest fan at dance recitals, and through the years they shared blessed
moments together in time and prayer. Brittany has always been a big advocate for fitness and health. She enjoyed this shared passion with her brother Chase and spend bonding hours at their favourite gym.

The hearts of her siblings are torn in the loss of their ‘Britts.’

Brittany was created to be a puppy mama and meticulously cared for her two loves, Hercules and Apollo. Many an hour and day found her and her pups walking the river
valley trails. These were also Laurie’s happy mama moments as she joined her daughter in many walks and talks. Britt’s gentle and caring way provided a second home for her
uncle Joey, as she and her then companion Steven Besenyei, watched over his daily life and engagements around Edmonton.

Her generosity with time and computer savvy also found her in assisting stepdad Harvey in typing out sermons and as well assisting with Laurie’s articles and video’s.

Brittany was given a unique and passionate personality. Firm in her convictions she found herself standing strong in many circumstances throughout her life. Still struggles that were once light became incredibly heavy. With a rapidly changing world and
influences unbeknownst and unimaginable to her and her family, unbearable pain
became her constant companion. She left this earth in a quiet passing.

Brittany is survived by her mother Laurie Penner (nee Matwychuk), stepdad Harvey Penner, sisters Jordan Taylor Moss, Julia Rae Penner and brother Chase Dodd, maternal grandmother Adina Schmidt, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.

She is pre deceased by her father James Moss, grandparents Lloyd and Sophie Moss, grandfather Steve Matwychuk, step grandparents Henry and Martha Penner, uncles Mervin Moss, Fred Moss, Joey Moss and Steven Moss, step aunt Arlene Penner and cousin Dawn Moss.

All loved her greatly. crushing of the rose the most lovely fragrance can come forth.

A celebration of her life will take place this summer with family and friends under the warmth of the sun.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this incredibly difficult time. Losing someone as special as Britt is truly a profound loss, and my thoughts are with your family as you navigate through this grief.

Growing up, Brittany was more than just a friend; she was a cherished part of my childhood memories. Her warmth, kindness, and infectious laughter brightened the lives of everyone around her. Whether it was playing together in the neighborhood or sharing stories during sleepovers, Brittany brought joy to all who knew her.

I will always remember Brittany fondly. Her presence in our lives will be deeply missed, but her spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.

May you find solace in the cherished memories of Brittany, and may her legacy of love and laughter bring you strength in the days ahead.

With heartfelt sympathy,

My deepest sympathies to the family. I hardly have a childhood memory without Brittany in it! She is and will always be a core part of my early life! Growing up on the same cup de sac in Edmonton we were immediately best friends as preschoolers up until my family moved far away and we kept in touch but over the years was harder to stay connected. I remember the last time we chatted on the phone and caught up on a lot was either end of high school or early college age I’m not sure, but she was sharing her story and how God had saved her life and turned it around. She was still my little girl best friend, funny and humble and convicted of the reality of heaven and the endless grace of God and she also told me how thankful she was for her family. She taught me how to make a daisy chain as we laid around on the grass watching clouds endlessly and I just envision her now, wearing a crown of daisies, saying He loves me! In the presence of her savior.

I was privileged to work directly with Brittany through Zoom chats while working through her identity in Christ.

Her war was fierce but tenacious all the more. She hoped for a full retreat while her heart cried out to God. She knew the only person her heart could find rest was the One who had likewise trod. While her soul fought the words of zealous cheer to lift her constant despair, the end cried out to hear the words of her Savior’s whisper, “I’ve been there.”

I will miss my chats with Brittany and her occasional radiant smile. I look forward to seeing her again on Heaven’s glorious side. Today, my heart cries out for her family and close friends – for their climb up the hill of grief to carry the ponderous burden. I am with you in the Spirit of Truth!

As my older cousin, I always looked up to Brittany. Her smile was magic—it could fill whoever was blessed by it with warmth and kindness in a single breath. This remarkable gift taught me much about love. My deepest condolences to Laurie, Harvey, Jordan, Julia, and Chase.
