We lost our beautiful mother, Jessie Mae Brandenburg, on Monday, April 29, 2019. She was as lovely in her heart as she was beautiful on the outside. She had a smile for everyone she met. She was easy going, loving and true friend. She was always by your side when you needed her with her wisdom and hugs. She was loved by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. She was truly one of a kind. We will miss her until we join her in Heaven.
