Brandi Lynn Bernhart, 36, went to be with our Heavenly Father on Monday, May 20, 2013. Brandi was born Nov. 26, 1976, to William and Sheri Bernhart. After growing up in Laurel, Mont., and giving birth to her first daughter, Brittany, on Nov. 10, 1992, Brandi got married to Jeremiah (Jay) Wilson in December of 1998. Jay and Brandi moved from Billings to Three Forks where Brandi was a stay-at-home mom with daughter Brittany. On May 25, 2000, Brandi was blessed with the birth of her second daughter, Heather. Brandi would continue being a stay-at-home mom until the summer of 2007, when she went to work for Wheat Montana Bakery and Farms. She loved her work and co-workers and was most recently a Product Quality Manager in the Bakery.
Brandi touched the lives of so many people. Her caring nature, sense of humor, big smile, and nurturing way enhanced the lives of everyone she came in contact with. Brandi was a loyal, hardworking and reliable friend and employee. She always offered words of encouragement, advice or a helping hand wherever she was needed. Brandi was truly a precious gift to everyone who knew her and was most proud of being the mother to her daughters Brittany and Heather.
Brandi’s hobbies included reading books, camping, fishing, coaching softball and photographing wildlife. Brandi had a deep love for animals of all types as evidence by her dogs, cats, rabbit, bird, fish and such. Nothing gave Brandi more happiness than driving or hiking in the mountains and seeing a deer, an elk, a moose or any other wildlife. Brandi enjoyed attending and supporting the Three Forks Wolves boys and girls sports teams. But her true love and passion was discovered in 2002 when she joined the volunteer Three Forks Emergency Medical Response team, giving countless hours of herself to help protect and save the lives of others.
Brandi was preceded in death by her grandparents Chester and Beverly Metcalf and John and Evelyn Bernhart.
Brandi is survived by her parents, William John and Sheri Bernhart; daughters, Brittany Kay Bernhart and Heather Marie Wilson; brother, William James Bernhart; sister, Brenda Bernhart and nephews, Parker Bernhart and Chris Bernhart; uncle, Scott Metcalf; aunt, Susan Sparks; and several cousins along with her many friends, EMS team and Wheat Montana work colleagues.
Brandi, we all love and miss you more than words can, or will ever express. We find strength and comfort in knowing you are blanketed with love and peace in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
