Myrna Mae Hanson was born to Harold and Rena Hanson in Superior, Wisconsin. She grew up in Duluth, MN and graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1947 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduation she went to teach primary school in Washington DC where she met her late husband, Col. William (Bill) Brandon. She is survived by her loving stepdaughter, Sara Dale (Walter) Townsen and her beloved sons, Gregg (Robyn) and David (Teresa.) Her greatest joy came from her grandchildren, Nick (Blakely), Loren, Tim and Bonnie. She was an active volunteer at the Air Force Academy working in the pharmacy and thrift shop. She was also active with the Retired Officers Wives Club and the Bereans at First United Methodist Church. She made many friends from her time in the Air Force and loved keeping in touch with them as well as her many friends in the Springs. She enjoyed playing bridge and was a devoted Falcon Football fan. Granny "B" loved celebrating life's milestones with family. Her family will always remember her endearing sayings. She was called home to Jesus on May 31, 2020. "Home again, home again Jiggety jog"

Myrna always came into the dental office with a smile and pleasant demeanor. We enjoyed talking about football her son's coaching careers (which team colors she was wearing) and her grandchildren's sports accomplishments. My sympathy to her loving family.
