Brandy was a prayer warrior and inspired others with her faith as she walked her journey with cancer. She continued to always think of others, even during her difficult days, always giving more than she knew in her own gracious way. Brandy knew no strangers, was a friend to all, including her caregivers in her journey. Her caregivers included a special group of friends who cared for her, laughed with her, and supported her and her family, and each other as Brandy journeyed through her cancer battle.

Those left to cherish Brandy’s memory include her beloved boys: her husband, John Michael Young and her son, Kiptyn; her mother, Sandy Leopard; brother: Travis (Annette) Leopard; mother-in-law: Ruth Ann “Fawnie” Young; and sisters-in-law: Tiffanee (Barney) Lloyd and Amber (Rusty) Ruggles and their families. She was preceded in death by her biological parents; her father, Roy Leopard and father-in-law, John Young.
