Brandy (Grindstaff) Tollie

June 28, 1976 ~ April 19, 2018 (age 41)

Brandy Grindstaff Tollie, age 41, of Marion, passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Thursday, April 19, 2018 following several years of declining health. Her family was with her at the John F. Keever, Jr. Solace Center in Asheville when she left this world for her eternal home in heaven after a courageous battle with cancer.  She was a daughter of Joe and Debra Pitman Grindstaff of Marion and was born in Spruce Pine on June 28, 1976.  This precious woman was always more concerned with the needs of others more than her own.  She never failed to look for the good in people, always building up and edifying those she knew and loved.  Her down to earth nature and loving countenance won her many friends and all who knew this lovely lady will miss her deeply.  She loved to fish and found an unusual affinity for the moon, loving nothing better than to gaze at it in wonder each night, in sync with its attraction and influence on the earth and herself.  Her first husband, Frankie Tollie, an infant granddaughter, Ariel, and a brother, Joey, preceded her in death.

Brandy leaves behind, in addition to her parents, her husband, Marty Willis; three children, Dylan Grindstaff, Brooke Tollie and Savannah Tollie, all of the home; her brother, Tim Swann of Valdese; two grandchildren, Jaden Cordell and Isaac Yokobenis; and many other loving family and friends.

Brandy’s life will be celebrated on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. in the chapel of Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion.  The family will receive friends from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.  Her remains will be laid to rest with her beloved Frankie in Oak Grove Cemetery.
