Patricia J. Branson

Patricia J. Branson passed away peacefully at Swedish Hospital Seattle on December 26, 2012. She was 86 years old. Her last four years were spent with family in Seattle, and we feel so fortunate to have shared these final days with her. And we are comforted to know that she is resting peacefully with the Lord. Patricia was predeceased by husband James C. Branson and son Siegel J. Branson, and is survived by sister Elleanor Plumbridge of Fallon, NV and brother Bernard Campbell of San Francisco, CA. Patricia is also survived by three children living in Seattle: Katherine Rosecrans (Franklin), Matthew C. Branson, and Lance J. Branson. Grandchildren: Eva Wohlfahrt (Martin), and Justin James Branson (Kara), both of Seattle, and Brittany Patricia Branson of Hawaii. Two great - grandchildren: Isaac and Saren. Brittany's tribute to Patricia: Today I honor my beautiful grandmother Patricia and celebrate her life and the memories she blessed me with. The love she showered on me and the many things she taught me. Through her love I was led to a life so abundant with Christ. As much as I would love to be selfish and hold her near to me, I smile with complete faith that my beautiful grandmother is with the Lord. Oh how she loved Him and I rejoice that she has been made whole and is at peace in the glorious presence of God. Today I honor my beautiful Grandmother…I send love, tears and laughter off with you as I adore and cherish you and your memory forever! Psalm 27:4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
