Mrs. Brandt grew up on her family’s farm and attended the North Centre School before graduating from Bloomsburg High School in 1953.  She continued her education at Bloomsburg State College, graduating with her bachelor’s degree in 1971.  On June 12, 1954, she wed the love of her life, Mr. James P.
