Sep. 6, 1973 - July 1, 2014 Daughter, Wife & Mother Brandy Sue Missroon, "Tex," passed away at her home July 1, 2014, surrounded by her family. Brandy was born September 6, 1973, and had lived her entire life in Lake Stevens, where she graduated from Lake Stevens High School in 1991. As a girl growing up, she had been a Blue Bird, Campfire member, played baseball and basketball and later was a member of DAC (Daughters of American Colonies) with her grandmother, Luella. Over the years she had been employed at Mr. Bill's, Ambers Café, Top Foods, Boeing, and was currently working for the Lake Stevens School District as the "lunch lady." Brandy met her husband, Jonathon, while working at Boeing. They were married August 19, 2000, and reside in Lake Stevens. Brandy loved to read, travel, and of course shop! With all of the things Brandy loved in life, her greatest was being a mother. She spent hours recording her children's milestones with first steps and first words. Each moment with each child was just as special as the one before – Jon and the children were her world. Brandy is preceded in death by her father, Tom Anderson, and sister, Pamela Alexander. Brandy leaves behind her husband, Jon; five incredible children, Brandy's sons, Daniel and Dean Backman, daughters, Grace and Emma Missroon, all of the family home, and step-daughter, Alicia Missroon; two grandchildren, of Medford, Ore; her mother, Penny and Tom (Jamie) Anderson of Lake Stevens; sister, Darcy (David) Flo of Tenino, Wash.; grandmother, Orpha Smith, of Soap Lake, Wash.; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. The family would like to send a very special thank you to Dr. Renato Martins and his amazing staff at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance for their outstanding compassion, care and support during the last seven years, "we are forever grateful" for the extended time we had with Brandy. In our hearts we all prayed it could have been longer. Services are scheduled at Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home in Marysville, July 12, 2014, at noon. Potluck to follow at the family home.
