Lorraine May Braun was born January 13, 1939 in Herbert, Saskatchewan to George and Helen (Toews) Penner. Her five siblings are: Norman d. (Olga d.), Velma (Eric) Mierau, Jean (Harry d.) Bauer, Melvin d. (Kathy), and Wes (Luise).
Beginning with Teachers College in Saskatchewan and graduating with a B.Ed at the U of A, Lorraine taught school in Saskatchewan a few years and then taught kindergarten in Edmonton for a memorable 22 years before retiring in 1994.
In 1960 she married Otto Braun. Their two children are: Ellery d. and Maurya (Scott); and their grandchild is Fionnuala.
Lorraine and Otto have lived in Saskatchewan, Labrador, and Edmonton over the last 57 years. This includes over 40 years making many friends at Lendrum Church.
Lorraine was an avid gardener, cook, birdwatcher, camper, and homemaker, and especially enjoyed reading. All these contributed in a loving, organized and energetic way to the many wonderful family memories we now have. After retirement, Lorraine and Otto enjoyed more camping, and many years of holiday travel, including the U.S., Costa Rica, and especially Europe.
Memorial Service will be held at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at Lendrum Mennonite Brethren Church,11210 59 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB
