Brandy Sue Bell

EDMOND —     Brandy Sue Bell, 33, was born to Larry Lasenberry and Rita Cook on November 15, 1978 in Lawton, Okla. She entered into the presence of her Lord September 11, 2012.

    She grew up in Moore, Okla. She trusted the Lord Jesus Christ and was born again when she was 11 years old. She was baptized two years later and became a member of Bodine Baptist Church. She joined Edmond Road Baptist Church in 1996 where she has served the Lord faithfully. She found pleasure in teaching God’s Word and encouraging others. She was most involved in the children’s and ladies ministries.

    Brandy met her future husband Chris Bell while serving in the church; they were married November 6, 2004. Both Chris and Brandy felt God’s calling to missions and God directed them to Brazil. Brandy was a faithful wife and a Godly woman. Chris and Brandy have three beautiful children who were her greatest joy and she loved them with all her heart. She was dedicated to teaching them to love the Lord. Brandy struggled with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. She drew her strength from the Lord and His Word. She would often turn to II Corinthians 12:9 which says “And he said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” The desire of her heart was to bring glory to God and to tell others of His love through Jesus Christ.

    Brandy is survived by her husband Chris Bell; her three children, Elijah Michael, Sarah Elisabeth, and Caleb Walker; her mother Rita Cook and husband Calvin Cook; her grandparents Howard and Johnie Apple; her grandma Elaine Merritt; her six siblings, Chandria Smith, Amanda Mendoza, Stephanie Peetoom, Lawrence Lasenberry, Nathan Cook, and Jolene Pohle; and 11 nieces and nephews.

    Services to celebrate her going home will be 10 a.m. Saturday, September 15, 2012 at Edmond Road Baptist Church in Edmond. Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Matthews Funeral in Edmond.
