Our sweetheart, Brandy Nicole Maloney passed away on Saturday February 19, 2022 at the age of 37 due to an existing heart condition. Brandy was a loving, loyal wife, daughter, and dear friend to many. She is survived by her loving husband, Patrick E. Maloney and her beloved mother Judy E. Morace and father James D. Morace. She was preceded in death by her adoring grandfather Vern Jones, her grandmother Bonnie Jones, her great grandfather Ernest Hall and great grandmother Florence Tabor. As a child Brandy was an early reader and loved books, animals, playing soccer and having slumber parties with her best friends and particularly enjoyed jumping on the bed well into middle school. During high school she had many friends, enjoyed going to the dances, she was involved with the Spanish club and The Future Medical Workers of Tomorrow. She graduated from Bella Vista High School in 2002 with honors and went on to attend California State University, Sacramento, where she received her Bachelor's degree in Nutrition in 2007. Afterwards, she worked for ten years as a nutritional educator and could often be found heading to community education events, fairs and primary schools dressed in a banana costume, all to raise awareness for children on the importance of nutrition for low-income families. Brandy later furthered her career by receiving her associate degree in Nursing from ARC in 2019 and subsequently worked as a Registered Nurse in the mental health field, all during the ongoing global pandemic. As an R.N. and former nutritional educator, she dedicated herself to the honorable and virtuous care of those who could not care for themselves. She had a principled work ethic and often took extra shifts to help others out when needed and was a team player. Brandy often stated that she enjoyed her work because it kept her in touch with what others were feeling and helped to maintain a humble attitude. As an adult, Brandy's greatest passions in life included her husband, family, friends, animals, nature, travel, dancing, and music. She especially liked classic rock. Brandy and Patrick were married on July 17th, 2015, in Foresthill California. She and Patrick traveled often and created wonderful memories on their many trips. When not working they were always hiking, camping, snowboarding, snowshoeing, wine tasting, cooking together or spending time with their cats Jimmy and Dwight. As a family we can say that Brandy brightened the lives of all who knew her with her unmatched sense of humor, her kind, friendly demeanor, and her ever-present smile. She believed in living each day to the fullest and always looking on the bright side of life and we are going to do the same. ~ Until we meet again sweetheart, all our love to you. Funeral services will be held privately by the family. Donations can be made in her name to the Front Street Animal Shelter Sacramento or Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode.
