Obituary



With hearts full of treasured memories, it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our amazing dad, proud grandpa, and loving husband, George Braun on Sunday October 17th, 2021, at the age of 82.

George was born the 6th child (5th son) of 10 children to Isaac & Maria Braun (Friesen) on the farm in Hague, SK on Dec. 30th, 1938. The family relocated to the Southern Alberta area of Coaldale, where, as a young boy, he worked on the sugar beet farms. In 1955 he joined the Army(reserves) at age 17.

Becoming a man of many trades, George gained experience working as a farm hand and relocating houses. He also dabbled as an electrician in 1962.

Also, in1962, through a blind date, George met Carrolea Anderson, who he married on June 20th, 1964. They had 4 children, Calvin Dale (Missy), Darryl Wesley (ValMarie), Diana Lea Zenert (Gary), Brenda Kay Marschall (John). Along with 12 grandchildren, Douglas Michael Braun, Kaitlyn Marie Braun, (Andrew Strasser), Tylene Darnelle Boyer (David), Elena Marie Braun, Shon Gary Zenert (Alesha), Brett Edmond Zenert, Kyle Isaac Zenert, Michael Christopher Marschall, Ashley Hope Marschall and 2 great grandchildren, Kerrigan Faye Strasser and Cyrilla Olivia Strasser.

After a number of years of oil field related employment, George and family relocated, in 1971, to Northern Alberta to the town of Grimshaw. Here he learned the flooring trade with his older brother Peter. In 1975, he settled the family in Fairview Alberta where he later partnered with Blain Biegel, founding Fairview Flooring. Following a successful career building the flooring business, George sold his share and pursued multiple other interests finally retiring in 2010.

He is survived by his loving family and one sister Kathryn Thomas, and two brothers Bill and Peter.

To everyone, I suggest:

Gather ye rose buds while ye may,

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on the ripened grain. I am the gentle Autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die. My Spirit is still alive

Condolences

David & Helen Thomas (West Australia):

Sympathy to all the family. Fond memories from meeting George in 1990 & the very long distance phone calls. RIP

Shannon Kittleson:

May it comfort you to know others are thinking of you at this difficult time.
Will always remember Uncle George for his great sense of humor and mischievous twinkle in his eyes, he always had us kids giggling.
Mom always looked forward to his phone calls as he usually had a question about past events or people that would lead into good conversations reminiscing about days gone by.
Thinking of you all at this difficult time. With our deepest sympathy

Aunt Audrey,
Sheldon & Darlene Braun & family
Shannon & Norm Kittleson & family
