Jeannette Brandt was born on December 19, 1929 to Walter and Vera (Reimann) Henke on the family farm southeast of Parkston, South Dakota. In 1947, she graduated from Parkston High School. On December 8, 1953, she was united in marriage to Elmer Brandt. Together they made their home on the Brandt family farm 10 miles east of Tripp and were blessed with the birth of two children. Jeannette lovingly raised her two children as well as helping her husband on the family farm.
Jeannette always desired to help people. When her youngest became a high school senior, she decided to become a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA). In 1981 at the age of 51, she earned her CNA degree at Mitchell Vo-Tech and began working at Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hospital in Scotland. Following her retirement from the hospital, she continued to care for people by working part time at the Menno-Olivet Care Center. Due to a broken hip from a fall, Jeannette was unable to continue working and officially retired in January 2016. She was able to stay on her beloved farm after her fall and surgery thanks to the watchful eye of her caring friends and neighbors, Willie and Mary.
Jeannette adored her grandchildren and spoiled them when they came for a visit. Church was also very important to her. She was a devoted member who rarely missed a Sunday.
Jeannette passed away on April 30, 2017 at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota having attained the age of 87 years, 4 months, and 11 days.
She is survived and remembered by her children: Robyn (Todd) Magstadt of Brookings, SD, and son Greg (Cheryle) Brandt of Sioux Falls, SD; grandchildren Brandi (Steve) Mandsager of Sioux Falls, SD, and Shayne Magstadt and friend Lucy Corro of Ft. Collins, CO; great-grandson Elliot Mandsager; step-great-granddaughter Grace Mandsager; sister-in-law Irene Henke; nephews Mark (Robin) Berg and Mike Berg; niece Roxanne (Rick) Tegethoff; and her beloved dog Abby.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Elmer Brandt in 1999, parents, brother Randolph Henke, and nephew Joel Berg.
