Brandy Kay Laster passed away surrounded by family on December 5, 2022, at Providence Hospital in Newberg, Oregon. She was the daughter of Catherine and Billy Laster. Brandy was born January 15, 1978, in Portland, Oregon. The family moved to Dayton, where she attended schools and graduated from high school in 1999.  By graduating from Dayton High School, she followed in the footsteps of her mother and grandparents.

She worked at Betty Lou’s Cookies, various caregiving institutions, and Svenson’s Pig Farm. In 2003, she met the father of her daughters. A few years later she found the passion of life; living on her aunt’s farm in Newberg where she was involved in many aspects of farming. She really enjoyed caring for the large herd of goats. She was heavily involved in Bacon Bits & Friends 4-H Club and Oregon Meat Goat Producers, where she was a member at large.

Brandy was a very caring and giving person. She was eager to learn new things and increase her knowledge. She will be greatly missed.
