BRYANNA LEIGH COBLER was born on April 4, 1990 to Edward and Wendy (Cosby) Cobler at Warner Robins Air Force Base in Houston County, Georgia. Growing up in a military family, Bryanna lived numerous places. She resided in Warner Robins until the age of five. Her father separated from the military and they moved to Reedsville, Wisconsin. In 1998, they moved to Hartford, South Dakota for a year and then the Sioux Falls area for a few years. She enjoyed playing in local youth basketball leagues during her childhood. In 2004, Bryanna moved to Ellsworth, Minnesota where she completed her high school years and graduated in 2008. Following graduation, she moved to Luverne, Minnesota. Bryanna completed her training to be a Certified Nurse’s Assistant (CNA) and worked in that position in Iowa, Luverne and Ellsworth. On Friday, June 4, 2021, Bryanna died unexpectedly at her home at the age of 31 years and 2 months.
Bryanna loved just being out and about and spending time outside, including growing flowers, camping and fishing. She liked to scrapbook, ride on motorcycles and hang out with her friends. She enjoyed hopping in the car and going for a cruise with the radio blasting. The girl also loved a good selfie. Bryanna was generous to a fault, loyal and loving. She was resilient – her family will always remember her favorite line, “suck it up, buttercup”, and how whenever life knocked her down, she always got back up.
She is survived by her children, Daemon Olson and Chase Meinerts of Luverne; her father, Edward Cobler of Garretson, South Dakota; siblings, Tanya Massie of Roseville, California, William “Lee” Massie (special friend, Heather) of Mitchell, South Dakota, and Tacia (Logan) Beebe of Pasco, Washington; and other family. She was preceded in death by her mother, Wendy Cobler; and her grandfather, Lynnwood “Butch” Cobler.
