Mary Jo Brandt was born on February 6, 1927 in the rural hills of Tennessee. She went to her
Lord and Savior on May 24, 2021. Mary left her home in Tennessee at the age of 15 and took a
train to live with her sister Ann in Chicago Illinois. While working in a jewelry store, she met her
future husband, Robert Brandt. They married and had three children, Eileen, Robert and
William. Mary was a wonderful woman and was loved by everyone who had the chance to meet
her. She had a laugh that was contagious and tears would role down her face when she was
tickled over something. Her home became the hangout of all the neighborhood children and no
one was ever denied a lunch, dinner or a slice of her homemade pie. She and my father
eventually purchased a second home in Northern Wisconsin where she would spend hours
catching her favorite fish Crappie. She learned how to quilt and became a master at producing
the most beautiful quilts that you ever saw. She especially enjoyed making baby quilts and
giving them out to young mothers. She leaves behind many grandchildren and great
grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Robert and her daughter Eileen.
Her final wishes were to be cremated and her ashes spread in a field of wildflowers. We will all
miss our sweet Mama Mary and look forward to when we meet again at the gates to heaven!
The family would like to thank from our hearts, the wonderful nurses and staff at the Health Park
Hope Hospice House in Fort Myers, that took such good care of her in her final days.

    In all the years I knew “Mama Mary”, as I fondly called her, I found her to be a breath of fresh air, and a delight to be around! Her sense of humor was contagious, and I spent many, many nights on her couch with her laughing about the silliest things and taking selfies of ourselves while doing so!
    We enjoyed many great times, picking blueberries or tomatoes, having lunch Oceanside, spending holidays together, and solving the problems of the world...

    She was a wonderful mother to Bob, bringing beautiful meals to us after long days of work, and even washed Bob’s windows for him!

    Mama Mary, for years you were like a second mother to me, and I loved you as a mother. You will be sorely missed, but never ever forgotten... may you now soar freely with those you love in heaven, and until we meet again... rest in blissful peace....

    Gail Stangeland ❤️

    My mom was the best mom you could ever ask for. Being the baby she babied me and was my buddy. I remember playing hockey in the living room with her. Watching Cubs games together. Mom was always at my games. Mom was mom to all my friends and she was considered cool.
    I loved you more than you will ever know mom. I know thru our discussions that you were saved and accepted Jesus as your savior. That alone gives me great peace knowing you are in Heaven and enjoying everlasting life. We will be together again. My children loved their Granny and you will always be in their memories.
    We Love You Mom

    Mama Mary, you were without a doubt the best mother that any child could have had! So many wonderful memories but one that stands out above all others. My wife Cindy was dying from the metastasis of her oral cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy. I woke to an unbelievable situation and I just fell apart. Within 5 minutes of my calling, you were in my home with your shortsleeves rolled up
    And ready to save the day! It was such a relief and an indication of just who you were as a woman and a mother! I will always love you mom! Sitting with you everyday for these past five weeks was my honor to you as a mother, as a friend and as a giving and wonderful woman! May you Rest In Peace until we meet again! I love you!!!

    Mom was one of the most selfless people we’ve ever known. Her dedication to her family was always a priority. She was a strong fearless gal. Her life of serving others never went unnoticed. She was just a pure example that love can be hard work but worth every minute of it.
    We miss you here on earth Mom, but we aren’t saying “goodbye” but “see ya later”.

    Love, Bill, Leslie and family

    It’s hard to believe you’re gone, Aunt Mom! Go rest high on that mountain, and enjoy meeting your Savior face to face. Enjoy your never-ending reunion with Uncle Bob, Eileen, my Mom and my Dad. Hold my baby whom I never got to hold, just like you held me when I was a baby. You’re done, Aunt Mom…. Your journey is over. You are in the presence of the Lord. No more sadness. No more pain (emotional or physical). No more anger. No more fear. And watch for me, I’ll be there one day soon. I will never stop loving you. And i will never stop missing you.
