STEVENSVILLE – Brandi Elizabeth Welty, 32, passed away peacefully with family surrounding her on Tuesday, March 12, 2013.

Brandi was born Oct. 25, 1980, in South Bend, Wash. Her parents Martine “Marty” and Elbert G. Welty were very proud. Brandi moved to Stevensville in 2005 with her mother and son. She earned her GED in 2004. Brandi never married; however, she was happily engaged to Justin DeBeaurd. They were to be married in April.

Brandi worked as a cashier at many stores in Stevensville. She was easily recognized by her smile. She always had a smile for everyone and was liked by so many. She had such a kind and warm heart. She was always willing to help anyway she could. Brandi enjoyed painting crafts, going for drives and laying out at the river. Her favorite thing was being a mom. Brandi was a devoted mother and daughter, an amazing sister, a true friend and a loyal fiancee.

Brandi is preceded in death by her daughter, Kira; her father, Bert; and grandmothers, Edge and Welty. She is survived by her 12-year-old son, Tyler; and fiancé, Justin DeBeaurd and his two children Chance and Heavenly. Also, her brother, Shaun Welty, his wife Raquel and their daughter Kaycee Lynn of Stevensville; brother, Arlando Welty and his significant other Chantelle of Missoula; her mother, Martine Welty of Stevensville; aunts, Renee and Manon; uncle, Clinton; and many cousins of Washington.

Please join family and friends in a celebration of her life this Friday, March 22. It will be held at the LDS church on Middle Burnt Fork Road and Main Street. It will start at 5 p.m. There will be light refreshments served. Bishop Yaskus will be officiating the service and Sarah Springer will read the eulogy. As per Brandi’s wishes, there will be no viewing. She will be cremated and her family will have a private ceremony in late spring. Her ashes will be combined with her daughter Kira’s and they will be spread on St. Mary Peak.

Donations to help family with costs can be made at Missoula Federal Credit Union.
