Face of a Farmer


Brandie Simon

In Memory

The Oregon poultry growers and greater agricultural community lost one of its own on December, 19, 2023.

Our sympathy goes to Eric and the entire Simon family. We will miss you, Brandie, Godspeed...

Services will be held on January, 12 at 3:00pm. Life Bible Church, 23650 Peoria Road, Harrisburg, OR 97446

In the quiet embrace of nature, where the wind whispers through the fields and the earth cradles the seeds of life, we say goodbye for now to a woman who sowed love, reaped joy, and forever remains an integral part of the very essence of our farming community. May her soul find eternal peace, and may her legacy continue to bloom in the hearts of those she touched with her boundless love.
