Brenda Kay Switzer
She was the daughter of the late Mr. & Mrs. T. C. Mayfield. Brenda was born on Oct. 25, 1946, in Fort Worth. She lived in Fort Worth for several years before moving her family to the home place in Millsap. There, she raised her two sons, Gary & Kevin Switzer.
Upon her passing, Brenda was employed by Toledo Finance for over 13 years, where she served as the Branch Manager in their Weatherford location. Brenda loved going to work each and every day and being with two of her closest friends, Kathy Markum and Sara Rasmussen.
The most important thing to Granny B was her family. She, along with her boys and their families, all lived together on the home place now commonly known as “The Switzer Compound.” It was a usual sight to see Granny B together with her grandkids each and every day. She loved her family more than life and always protected them with every ounce of her being. She cherished the special relationship she had with her niece and best friend, Dina Westbrook. Together, they have shared many special shopping trips and made countless memories with one another.
Our hearts are broken and will long for Granny B in the many days to come, but we find peace in knowing we will see her again in Heaven, and get to spend eternal life with her.
