Annabelle H. (Kremer) Brandt, age 84, of Mokane formerly of Chamois, passed away on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at Riverview Nursing Center in Mokane surrounded by her daughter and son-in-law.
Annabelle was born August 30, 1937, in Frankenstein, a daughter to the late Paul J. and Elizabeth (Troesser) Kremer.
She was a graduate of St. Mary’s School in Frankenstein.
On April 18, 1959, she was united in marriage to the love of her life Bernard “Bernie” Brandt at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church in Frankenstein. He preceded her in death on January 8, 2022.
Annabelle was a very sweet, compassionate, caring and loving lady. She was very hard working. She was a homemaker and worked side by side with her husband to build their family farm that they could enjoy and pass on to their daughter. She also took care of many little ones over the years. Annabelle always had a smile on her face, loved her faith and God and most importantly she loved life. Annabelle and Bernie were married 62 years and had a love like no other. They went to church together, prayed together, and always said the rosary daily together. Dad would always say “I love Mom” and she would always say “I love Dad”.
Annabelle was a member of Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church in Frankenstein and the Ladies Sodality.
Annabelle was known for her homemade cinnamon rolls, homemade bread, blackberry pie and homemade jellies. Dad and I couldn’t wait until the homemade bread came out of the oven just to see who was going to get the heel first – usually it was me. Annabelle made her first loaf of bread at the age of 10. She also loved to garden and can, picking blackberries and going mushroom hunting with her daughter. No one ever left their house without having a cup of coffee. She was also well known for her passion of crocheting. She crocheted doilies, pillowcases and scarves for many people. She loved her farm animals and helping everyone. Most importantly, she loved her husband Bernie and her daughter Carol and her family.
She is survived by her daughter, Carol Crall and her husband James of Camdenton; four grandchildren, James “Hadley” Crall of Bremerton, Washington, Robert Crall, Jenica Crall and Kymberlie Crall all of Camdenton; seven brothers, Virgil Kremer and James Kremer both of Frankenstein, Luke (Marian) Kremer of Loose Creek, Vincent (Martha) Kremer and Joseph (Debbie) Kremer all of Jefferson City, Gerard (Teddy) Kremer of Westphalia and Patrick (Rhonda) Kremer of Linn; five sisters, Bernadine Brandt and Paulette Peters both of Linn, Mary (Leonard) Keilholz of Chamois, Margaret (Lyndell) Salmon of New Bloomfield, and Dolores (William) Boss of St. Martins; one sister-in-law, Reta Brandt of Linn, along with many nieces, nephews and friends.
In addition to her spouse of 62 years and her parents, Annabelle was preceded in death by a brother, Richard Kremer and a sister, Therese Schmitz.
