Connie Herring Branyan

Saltillo- Connie Buse Herring Branyan, 93, passed away Wednesday, July 5, 2023, at her home after an extended illness. She was born April 16, 1930 in Guntown, the daughter of Jessie Taylor Buse and Pearl Horton Buse. Following graduation from Guntown High School, Connie along with her family relocated to Saltillo where she made her permanent home.

In 1952, she married John D. Herring, Jr.; they were married for 27 years before his unexpected death in 1979. Although Connie primarily was a dedicated homemaker, she worked a number of years as a switchboard operator for the Bank of Mississippi, now Cadence Bank. In 1982, she married Lewis Branyan; they were married for 21 years before his death in 2003. She was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Saltillo where she selflessly served as a choir member and Sunday school teacher. Connie was an avid Mississippi State Bulldogs fan and loved to travel.

She leaves behind her two children, Dr. Chuck Herring and his wife, Darlene, of Collierville, Tennessee and Pam Walton and her husband, Harry, of Saltillo; grandchildren, Heather Shivers and her husband, Vic, Zac Herring and his wife, Tina, DeAnna Dahlem, Drew Dahlem, and Carmen Hill and her husband, Adam; six great-grandchildren, Cade, Aynsley, Laken, Reid, Kennedy, and Benton; and Lewis’ children, Cindy Warren and Bob Branyan and his wife, Edye.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John D. Herring Jr.; her second husband, Lewis Branyan; two sisters, Corrine Herndon and Cornelia Carlock; and two brothers, Lawrence Buse and Tracy Buse.
