Obituary for Donna Lee Brandt

February 27, 1932 - June 2, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 85


Donna Lee Brandt, age 85, beloved wife of 65 years, passed to be with her LORD and Savior on Friday, June 2, 2017.

She was born February 27, 1932, to George L. Jones and Esther E. Jones Butler who preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband, David D. Brandt Jr., brother JJ Jones and wife Shirley, sister-in-law Connie Applegate, children David D. Brandt Ill and wife Jane Ann, Deanna M. Harris and husband Edward C. Harris Jr., and Duane A. Brandt. Also surviving are 19 grandchildren and spouses and 11 great grandchildren. "Nana" was greatly loved by her family and many friends for whom she always had a warm smile and encouraging greeting.

Married in college, she accompanied her husband through 30 years in the USAF, 14 years of missionary service with Campus Crusade for Christ and Gideon ministry until suffering an aneurysm in 1998. Donna taught school for over 20 years challenging students to academic excellence while providing guidance through difficult teenage transitions. It was a blessing to the children to have a mom who taught because they had access to all the answer books!

"Nana" was a wonderful grandmother. The grandchildren enjoyed spending time gardening, walking, and sleepovers on their own special night. All enjoyed the individual attention they received from their "Nana".

Donna was a prayer warrior at Allandale/Great Hills Baptist Church and co-taught a discipleship class for Christians. Her positive attitude and contagious smile were an example to many as she persevered for 19 years with limitations from her aneurysm. Chuy's was her favorite restaurant while classic movies and Swedish Bridge were her favorite entertainment.

Proverbs 31 beautifully describes this wonderful lady as a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and school teacher.
