Georgia Lee Brennan of Caldwell, Idaho passed away Saturday Oct. 13, 2007. She passed away at home of natural causes.
Georgia was born in Ballinger, Texas, on March 31, 1929, to Marvin Roscoe “Roxie” Blanton and Leah Dealva Powers Blanton. She grew up in West Texas and would forever be our “Texas Lady.” She married her childhood sweetheart Alfred Joe Brennan in 1949. From there she began her life as an Army wife and homemaker. She traveled with her family to various bases in the United States and to Germany during Alfred’s 30-year career in the Army. During these travels she met and touched many lives in each and every place they called home. Georgia was a member of Grape Creek Baptist Church in San Angelo, Texas. Her intense faith in her Savior Jesus Christ was the rock that she leaned on throughout her life. Georgia was known for many things, including her abundance of recipes which she shared with everyone. She took the job of a homemaker to heart and strived to be a wife to admire. She blessed her children with love and compassion during difficult times, especially those in which she was without her beloved husband. Georgia had a passion for dancing even until her last years with us. Everyone can recall that she had an innate sense of style and a love of vivid colors. We loved her for that.
Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law, Fay and Darrell Ward; son, Gary Brennan; son and daughter-in-law, Joe and Lucinda Brennan; all residents of Idaho, and son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Paula Brennan of Dallas, Texas. Georgia’s grandchildren include Angelia Hoffman, Shelli and Devin Dice, Sherri and Curtis Oman, Susan Ward, Casey Quinn, Heather and Jaron Simonson, Cody and Jena Quinn, Jamie Brennan, Jodie Brennan, Alex Brennan, Melissa and Ben Kopenhefer, Nathanial Jorgenson, Mikka Sandoval, Kristi and C.J. Brennan, and Gary Joe Brennan. She had 22 great-grandchildren.
Georgia is also survived by her brother, Roscoe Blanton; brother and sister-in-law Preston and Barbara Blanton; two aunts, Eva Ashworth and Opal Dean Montgomery; one sister-in-law, Nora Storey. Her love spread to all of her nieces, nephews, other family members, and dearest friends.
Georgia was preceded in death by her husband, Sgt. Major Alfred J. Brennan; father and mother, Roxie and Leah Blanton; sisters, Leona Fay Blanton and Linda Ryan; brother, Cecil Blanton; sister-in-law, Dorothy Blanton; and great-grandson Braeden Sandoval.
