The leaves turned brown and fell off. However the limbs still seem to be flexible not dry and brittle like I expected.

Is it getting sufficient water? Another problem might be the acidity level. Magnolias prfer a neutral to slightly acidic soil. Have your soil tested to find out if there is a nutrition or pH problem. Your local coopertive extension agent can help with a soil sample.
