Brandi Lee Gregor, age 37, born in Baltimore, Maryland on June 15, 1982, passed away on July 16, 2019 in her Rio Communities home. She was surrounded by her loving family. Brandi fought a long, hard, and brave battle but succumbed to the breast cancer of which she was diagnosed in the summer of 2016. Brandi was fiercely independent and, despite her families’ protestations, spent much of her adult life traveling far from Rio Communities. She lived in Washington state for several years, as well as Philadelphia before making her way home to New Mexico. Brandi made many friends along the way and spoke of them often and visited when time allowed. She started her career at age nineteen, working within the judiciary at the Los Lunas Magistrate Court and the Metropolitan Court in Albuquerque. Brandi spent several years as a retail manager for Old Navy and achieved her associate’s degree in Business Administration, with honors, from the University of New Mexico. During her youth, Brandi played softball, ran track, and was a member of her middle school drill team. She loved to read and had an amazing collection of books. Brandi was a serious Harry Potter fan and in alignment with her bravery, courage, and determination, belonged to the house of Gryffindor. She loved movies and television and could be found watching Friends on many occasions. Brandi was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Norman and Eileen Gregor; maternal grandparents, Richard and Carolyn Henderson; and her fur-baby, Amber. She is survived by her parents, Steven and Patricia Gregor; brother, Shawn Gregor and his wife, Jessica and children Alyziah, Jalen, Evelyn, Aubrey, and Shawn II.; sister, Heather Benavidez and her husband, Joshua Sanchez and daughter, Madeline; and brother, Eric Gregor and his children, Eric, Jr., and Keith. Brandi is also survived by the love of her life, Maddie Grace, aka, Wiggles, her miniature Australian Shepard, and by many more dear uncles, aunts, and cousins, most of whom reside in Maryland. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made, in Brandi’s name, to the Valencia County Animal Shelter.
