Their unexpected tragedy bares understanding that life is short and we must make the best of our time on earth. Brandi came to us as a bundle of joy on March 30, 1975, in West Monroe, Louisiana. She continued to spread that joy as she touched our lives, throughout her life. Brandi graduated from Chalmette High School, where she was an Owls’ cheerleader. She attended Southeastern Louisiana University and received a degree in Accounting. She worked as a property accountant managing oil and gas producing properties. Brandi was formerly married to William Landwehr, with whom she gave birth to two beautiful daughters, Hannah and Hailey. Brandi loved her girls and devoted her life to them. She was the most loving and kind person to everyone she met. She kept in touch with friends as far back as elementary school. Brandi had a bigger heart than anyone can imagine. She loved children and was especially devoted to helping sick or impaired children by seeking donations for their cause. Brandi was the beloved daughter of Karen Rodriguez Brown and the late Monte Wayne McGough and stepdaughter of Raymond John Brown. She was the mother of the late Hannah Angelle Landwehr and Hailey Madison Landwehr.

It’s difficult for me to even begin to describe the hole in our hearts. I am so glad we decided to be roomies so long ago and to have had the last 25 years blessed to call you our friend. You are truly one of the best people we have ever known. We will miss your generous, thoughtful and loving heart and cannot begin to express how thankful to you we are for the love, unending kindness and time you have given to our kids. You treated them as your own and loved them unconditionally. You will remain forever in our hearts as the wonderful person you were. We will miss you and never forget the treasured memories that will remain forever ours. We love you – Michelle, Tommy, T3 and Caitlyn

Brandi, I already miss you; like your phone calls and hearing "Hey Aunt Liz, how are you" with your unique, cheerful laugh that was contagious. You were a Guardian Angel on Earth and now have earned your wings as an Angel in Heaven for having touched and helped so many lives. You never knew a stranger . As I know our Heavenly Father was ready for you to be with Him, and you are completely happy and at peace; I certainly was not ready for you to go. We had so many wonderful times together and expected a lot more. I appreciate your compassion, thoughtfulness and encouragement helping me through my illness. Your positive and optimistic outlook on life was a blessing to all who knew you. I won't say Good Bye as I still feel your presence. Love "you"...…………..Aunt Liz

Brandi and I were cheerleaders together. We reunited a few years ago when our youngest daughters played on a soccer team together. Hannah and Brandi would workout with me, while the girls practiced. She is definitely one of the most selfless people that I have ever met. In fact, one day she picked my kids up from school when neither of her kids even went to the same school. In passing, I was telling her about how my kids were going in several different directions and was trying to figure out how I was going to get everyone to where he/she needed to be. Brandi insisted upon picking up my younger two kids because Hannah’s school was just across the street. That is only one of the many sweet things that she did. Brandi and Hannah will be greatly missed.

Brandi- I never got the opportunity to meet you personally- but I have heard great things about you from your brothers, Brent and Richard and your sweet sister in law - Gelinda McGough.
From what they have told me - you were an amazing woman with a soul of gold- beautiful on the inside and out.
I regret not having the chance to ever get to hang out with you and your family.
You have some incredible family that will miss you daily - they have 2 beautiful angels to watch over them - and have the comfort of knowing they will see you and your daughter again! RIP Brandi!!🙏🏻🙏🏻

I too am so thankful to have known you Brandi, I have learned so much from your selfless, loving nature. You always saw the bright side and always had something positive to say. I know you and Hannah are with Jesus where there is no pain and suffering, but as a selfish human I want you back. You will be sorely missed.
