She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Harold Vernon Brady; brother Walter Preston, and twin brother Dr. Lewis Preston. The family is grateful for the personal and professional services from Hospice Austin. God saw you getting weary, He did what He thought was best; He put His arms around you And said, "Come and rest." He opened up His golden gates On that heartbreaking day, And with His arms around you You gently slipped away. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone; A part of us went with you The day God called you home.
