Della Brandt

Please join family and friends in a Celebration of Della’s life. The gathering will be held on Monday, June 10 at Silver Springs Baptist Church, located on 9938 Lebanon Rd in Mt Juliet, at 5 p.m.

Mrs. Brandt, of Mt Juliet, peacefully left this world on June 3, 2013. Heaven gained a fighter, but we lost an angel in the process. Della fought, encouraged and battled to raise awareness of childhood cancer; all the while battling her own cancer. Della and her husband (Robert Brandt) use their passion of softball to mentor countless young ladies in pursing their dreams of higher education, sports and life achievements. Della worked for the County Clerks Office in Mt. Juliet for many years until illness required more recovery time.

Della is survived by her husband of 20 years, Robert “Bobby” Brandt. Bob and Ann Brandt (father- and mother-in-law), Sharen Perrine (sister-in-law), Karen Mckenzie (sister-in-law), Melissa Perrine (niece) and Daniel Perrine (nephew).

A special mention to the Nashville Nighthawks Girls and their families, they also have a special place in the heart of Della. Too numerous to list are all the people who are left with Della’s fingerprints on their lives and the wonderful memories of her laugh. In the words of Della, hug your babies a little tighter and love everyone!

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Della Brandt Memorial Fund are being accepted at First Freedom Bank.
