Braun, Isabel  
ISABEL (MICHEL) BRAUN August 29, 1917 ~ May 14, 2015 Isabel, age 97, entered heaven peacefully at home surrounded by love. She was the youngest of 9 children born to Joseph and Christina (Schock) Michel in Belfield, ND. She was happy to be a homemaker who loved taking care of her family. Besides family and friends, her other loves were baking, listening to music and reading. One of her favorite authors was Janet Evanovich and we loved to hear her giggles when reading the Stephanie Plum novels. She was preceded in death by her husband of 37 years, Wendelin; her parents and siblings. She is survived by her daughters, Virginia Munger (partner Jon Askim) and Patty Braun; grandchildren, Mike Munger(Heather), Greg Munger(Leanne), Joe Melton (fiancé Ashleigh Weger), Levi Garvey, and Dallas Garvey; great-grandchildren, Jake Munger, Madison Munger, Tyler Goranson, Nicole Johnson (Paul), Ryken Melton, and Kyler Melton; and great-great- grandchildren, Ryder, Natalie, and Jaxen. We wish to thank the volunteers at Our Lady of Lourdes who came every week to give mom communion and pray with her. It gave her so much peace and comfort. We also wish to thank the nurses and aids at PeaceHealth Hospice SW for all their caring and support during her last weeks with us. We miss you mom, but know you are with Jesus and will be watching over us all until we meet again. Memorial service will be Saturday, June 13th at 11:00a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 4723 NW Franklin St.,Vancouver, WA. Remembrance luncheon to follow.
