The great love of Brittany’s life was the family she and her husband of 17 years, Andrew, built together. Andrew knew from the first moment of meeting Brittany just how uniquely special she was. A deep and resonating love quickly grew and they were married on May 15th, 2004. The focus of Brittany’s joyful life was her children, Dominic and Dakota. As a family, they shared many adventures together in their RV, camping, kayaking, hiking, and mushroom hunting. Brittany was pure magic with her creativity and imagination and this magic carries on with her children.
Brittany’s love for the outdoors and all forms of water was shared by their extended families who were often invited to join in on the family adventures. Whether it was at the lakes or in Jamaica with her parents, or camping and hiking with Andrew’s family, Brittany was happiest when surrounded by those she loved and she eagerly planned each trip with love.
