Following the announcement of her death, Buttner’s colleagues remembered her fondly.

“Sad news to report… our colleague and my friend Brenda Buttner passed today. She fought cancer heroically. RIP Brenda. We will miss you,” Buttner’s colleague Eric Bolling wrote.

Buttner’s friend and close colleague Neil Cavuto praised Buttner for her thoughtful approach to her work.

“She took stock of life much more than any stock in life,” Cavuto said. “It’s what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth.”

“Let it be know that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit.”

Buttner was 55 years old.
