Patricia Keen Brandenburg, 84, of Bryan, Texas died on February 25, 2011. A memorial service is set for 2:00 p.m. Monday, February 28, at Callaway-Jones Funeral Home in Bryan.
Pat Brandenburg was born in Dallas, Texas. She was a Navy wife – strong, but flexible, raising her family at duty stations on the East Coast, the West Coast, Guam and many in between, finding excitement and reasons to love each one. She was an explorer of new places and ideas and lived a love story with her best friend for nearly 60 years.
Pat was an active member of the Officers Wives Club and the Brazos Valley Art League. She was a golfer and an artist. Having been described as “interested and interesting”, Pat touched the lives of all she met.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents, Lowell Stockton “Tiny” Keen and Lucile Donahoo Keen; her husband Brandy Brandenburg; and her son John.
Survivors include her daughters, Diane Brandenburg of Phoenix, Arizona, and Katherine Brandenburg of Long Beach, California. She is also survived by her brother, Michael Keen, her grandson and a multitude of nieces and nephews. Her family was her center and she cherished them. The family and friends that she leaves behind will miss her but know they are better for having known her and for having been loved by her.
