Tree Heart Border

Tonight I discovered the following picture of my aunt Jean posted on the Findagrave.com website by a very nice gentleman named Charles Lay. Thank you Charles!

I had never met her, and had no idea what she looked like until now. I of course became weepy at first sight.  I think she’s beautiful.  I see so much of my nieces Meegan and Monna in her, and my sister Annie has her nose. =)

The following obituary was also posted at the Findagrave site.

Jean Irene Brandenburg (née Ramsell) died peacefully at her home in Ontario, California on December 5, 2011 after several months of declining health.

She was born on November 30, 1926 in Los Angeles, to Grover Weston Ramsell and Annette Marie Misner.

She received her RN degree from Los Angeles County General Hospital in 1947.

On June 22, 1957, she married Patrick Henry Brandenburg from Ohio.

Together, they raised five daughters: Irene McDermott, Jane Hershberger, Cecilia Foster, Lisa Brandenburg, and Patricia Bowman. Patrick died in 1983.

In the 1970s and 80s, Jean worked as a nurse at Casa Colina Center for Rehabilitation in Pomona.

Jean’s daughters, nine grandchildren, and sister-in-law Roberta Ramsell miss her very much.

They will remember her at a gathering at Stone Funeral Home, 355 East 9th Street in Upland on Saturday, December 17 at 11 a.m.

She will be interred with her husband at Holy Cross Cemetery in Pomona at a later time.
