January 1, 1970 — August 31, 2018
5’2”, eyes of blue, a warm smile and transformed heart; Karen Lynne Braun took her first heavenly breath and embrace of her Lord on Friday, August 31, 2018 at 8:55pm. She lived a 57 year wide and maximized embrace of the DASH between the day she entered this world and left it.
“For to me, to LIVE is Christ and to die is GAIN” (Phil 1:21, NIV).
The life line thrown before Karen’s drowning rebellion back in ’76, by her cherished brother Bernie, was, “LISTEN FOR THE STILL CALM VOICE OF GOD!!!” Karen’s desperate repentance and salvation prayer was, “God, I have made such a mess of my life, if you can do anything with it, take it, its all yours.”
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, September 7th, 2018 at 1:00pm at Mission Creek Alliance Church, 2091 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC with light refreshments to follow.
She is immediately survived by her much-loved “Sir” Douglas John Braun, of 35 years marriage; their two treasured miracle sons, Caleb Braun, of Edmonton, AB, and Tobias Braun, of Kelowna, BC. Predeceased by her dear Dad, Con Petrescue, and loving brother Dave. She is outlived by her anchored and darling Mom, Marianne; eldest brother Bernie; and youngest, bestest sister friend, Michelle; and the rest of the clan’s respective families.
As in her living, so in celebrating her heavenly graduation, her desire is for you to be inspired, encouraged and built up by God’s WORDS at this occasion because Jesus is full and abundant in grace for your needs!
In lieu of flowers, a “Karen Braun Legacy Fund” has been created to continue the resources Karen developed for cultivating prayer. Cheques can be made to Doug Braun with “Karen Braun Legacy Fund” at the bottom.
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak but GOD REMAINS THE STRENGTH OF MY HEART; he is mine forever. But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter, and I WILL TELL EVERYONE about the wonderful things you do” (Ps 73:26, 28. NLT).
