A spirit of independence and courage
SOLON– If you know Rita Brannaman well, she probably has your birthday marked on her calendar.
She’s that kind of person.
“I care for other people,” she said.
Brannaman, 85, was named Solon Senior of the Year for 2014 by the Solon Senior Advocates this spring, an honor she shared with Fred Bark.
A lifelong resident of the Solon area, Brannaman has been a longtime volunteer for the Solon American Legion Auxiliary, a charter member of the Solon Women’s Club, an officer with the Sutliff Bridge Authority, and involved in a number of other local organizations.
