October 30, 1943 - February 10, 2021
Mary B. Branch of Shreveport, Louisiana, 77, also known as “Grams” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren went to be with her heavenly father Wednesday, February 10, 2021. Visitation for friends and family who would like to come will be Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Rose-Neath Funeral Home, 2500 Southside Dr., Shreveport, Louisiana. A private graveside service will follow at 2:00 p.m. at Ft. Jesup Cemetery in Many, Louisiana. Her love for the Lord was most important in her life and she always tried to honor him in every action. She was dedicated to serving the Lord, prayed about everything, a retiree of Bell South, and a lover of traveling, crossword puzzles, and loyal fan of Perry Mason and QVC. Her faith and belief in God’s word and promises comforted and strengthened her when facing storms in life.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Elmo and Honor Lea Brandon; husband, Alton Branch, Sr. and eleven brothers and sisters. She is survived by daughters, Tangie Saadat and husband, Shawn, and Tara Worley and husband, Jim; brother, Stanley Brandon and wife, Liz; four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; many loving nieces and nephews, and a host of special long-time dear friends. She will be deeply missed and remembered by all of us in our special unique ways. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren cherish their memories with their grandmother and will forever miss their “Grams.” I truly never learned the words “I miss you until I reached for your hand and it wasn’t there….
“If I had a flower for every day I think of you… I would walk in my own garden forever.” – Alfred Tennyson
The family would like to thank Rose-Neath Funeral Home for the great care and support provided.
