Garnet Marie Brandstrom
June 11, 1935 – November 5, 2018
Garnet Marie (Murrow) Brandstrom passed away Monday, November 5, 2018 after a brief illness. She was born in Yuma, Colorado on June 11, 1935 to Leta B. (Van Meter) Murrow and Gerald R. Murrow. The 2nd of 5 children, she was raised in the Mt. Vernon, Washington area where she graduated high school and later met and married the love of her life, Bruce A. Brandstrom in 1955. Bruce and Garnet moved to the Grand Coulee Dam area in 1970 with their 3 daughters. Garnet and Bruce enjoyed popular activities of each decade, becoming avid CB enthusiasts in the 70’s and early 80’s, joining the Spokane Rose society, hunting, fishing and camping. Garnet’s favorite activity though, was traveling with Bruce, with her most loved destination being the Oregon coast. Garnet was a member of the Church of the Nazerene and the Grand Coulee Senior Center. If you didn’t see here there, you most certainly would have found her at Pepper Jack’s having tea with friends. Garnet is preceded in death by her father Gerald, mother Leta, sister Lenora Lee, sister Lois, brother Ronnie and husband, Bruce. She is survived by her children, Sherry (Jim) Hendrix, Linda (Nick) Berthron and Robyn Brandstrom. She also leaves behind grandchildren, Katie Mauricio, Joshua Hendrix, Derrick Brandstrom, Andrew Hendrix, Tiffany Henning, Elizabeth Carpenter and Sarah Carpenter as well as 5 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would also like to thank Strate Funeral Home, the staff at CCM, Dale Green, Bob Stout and her church family for their caring assistance. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Grand Coulee Dam Senior Center. A service will be held in the spring at the Spring Canyon cemetery. Details will be announced at a later time.
