Betty L. Brandt, 87, of Bloomington IL, passed away April 30, 2021. She was born January 12, 1934 to Joseph and Elizabeth (Dieckow) Dano and married the love of her life, Richard “Dick” L. Brandt on December 20, 1953 at Atlanta Christian Church.

Betty is survived by her loving husband: Richard; son: Rod (Julie) Brandt; daughter: Connie (Robert Stephens) Brandt; grandchildren: Kelly (Ben) Spacek, Jessi (Danny Van Note) Allison, Terry (Nicole) Allison; four great-grandchildren; and sister: Marie (Ozzie) Koller. She is preceded in death by her parents; and brother: Joseph Dano Jr.

Betty graduated from Atlanta high school in 1952 and went on to graduate from the Bloomington School of Practical Nursing as an LPN, working at Brokaw Hospital for several years. She was a faithful member of the First Christian Church, and was also a member of the Women of the Moose for 45 years. Throughout the years, Betty enjoyed camping, traveling, playing cards, and gambling. For fifteen years in retirement, Betty and Dick wintered in Las Vegas; enabling many friends and family to visit and escape from the cold Illinois winters.

Due to COVID-19, funeral services will be family only, with a public memorial celebration held later, in July.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation; First Christian Church; Women of the Moose; or McLean County Nursing Home.

Our family would like to thank everyone at McLean County Nursing Home. From the nurses, CNA’s, and administration, to the laundry and kitchen areas for the excellent care and attention Betty received in the 3 1/2 years she was a resident.

Dick - so sorry about Betty’s passing. We were your back door neighbors in the early part of the 70s and I worked at State Farm as you did. I will always remember Dick Brandt and family. May God’s love and support surround all of Betty’s loved ones.
