I have been married to Tom Brandenburgh for 24 years. We have 4 wonderful children, 3 boys and 1 girl. Our boys all three graduated from Chisum ISD. Our oldest son, Staton (29) is currently a student at Texas A&M-Commerce earning his degree in electrical engineering. Landon (23) is a police officer in Rockwall.

We enjoy family time together where we can catch up with what everyone is doing.
I enjoy crafting, reading, sewing and spending time with friends and family.
