Doris Brandt

October 12, 1928 — April 24, 2020

Doris Elaine Brandt, age 91, of Chippewa Falls, passed away peacefully at the Marshfield Medical Center in Eau Claire on Friday, April 24, 2020.

She was born October 12, 1928 near Flom, Minnesota to Eddie and Anna (Swenson) Erickson.  Doris attended a country school and was baptized, confirmed and married at Immanuel Lutheran, a rural church.  She graduated from Twin Valley High School and continued her education at a business college in Fargo, North Dakota.

Doris was united in marriage to Stanley Brandt of Gonvick, MN in October, 1949.  They lived in Pembina, ND until moving to LeSeuer, MN in 1950.  In 1960, they moved to Chippewa Falls where they lived until 1974. At that time, Stanley’s job took them to St. Cloud, MN, where he passed away in 1996. Doris moved back to Chippewa Falls in 1999.

Doris was a longtime member of Central Lutheran Church and a member of several of their service groups: the Martha Circle, CLCW, and Titus.  She enjoyed the groups and made great friends.  She also volunteered for Agnes’ Table, the summer lunch program, and visiting friends in nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living homes.  They were very important to her.

Doris is survived by her three children, Kyle (Linda) Brandt of Chippewa Falls, Holly (Mark) Geissler of Eau Claire, and Maureen (Kevin) Schrapp of Zimmerman, MN; grandchildren, Kristi Brandt of Chippewa Falls, Kevin Brandt of Chippewa Falls, Jessica (Troy) North of DeForest, Ashley (Chris) Riha of Farmington, MN, Matthew (Kristen) Schrapp of Jobstown, New Jersey, and Jenna (Jay) Goslinga of Princeton, MN; five great-grandchildren, Ella Brandt, Mia and Lincoln North, Brooklyn Goslinga and Madison Riha.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and her husband, Stanley.
