June C. Braun, 97, Oconto Falls, went to be with Jesus early Sunday morning, Oct. 14, 2018, at Atrium Post Acute Care of Oconto Falls with her family present. The youngest of 10 children of Charles and Mary (Nelson) Gilbertson was born Jan. 7, 1921 in the Town of Gillett and grew up there on the family farm and was confirmed at Bethel Lutheran Church. She moved with her parents to Oconto Falls in the eighth grade.

On Sept. 10, 1938, she married Herbert Braun at St. Jacobs Lutheran Church in Oconto Falls. The couple made their home in Oconto Falls, where they raised three daughters. June was always supportive and dedicated to both her children and grandchildren’s education and activities. As one of the most continuous and active members of Grace Lutheran Church, she stayed involved in numerous ways as her Christian faith was very important to her. She was also very involved on the election board. June enjoyed flower gardening, music and writing prose and poetry.

Survivors are her three daughters, Diane (Tom) Malcomson, Oconto Falls, Connie Wenzel, St. Germain, and Wendy (Don) Vogt, Atlanta; five grandchildren, Larry (Annette), Bart (Becky) and Todd (Yumay) Malcomson, Michael (Michelle) Wenzel and Irina Vogt; six great-grandchildren, Abbie (Ben) Nuthals, Brittney, Brady and Brynn Malcomson, and Marshal and Mason Wenzel; two great-great-grandchildren, Luci and Everly Nuthals; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Herb, son-in-law Tom Wenzel, three sisters, Florence Rice, Eleanore Krause and Irene Walske and six brothers, Clarence, John, Oren, Edmen, Myron and Norman Gilbertson.

Visitation will be held after 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at Grace Lutheran Church in Oconto Falls until the time of services. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday at the church with Pastor Gary R. Olson officiating. Burial will follow in Woodlawn Cemetery, Oconto Falls. Jones Funeral Service in Oconto Falls is serving the Braun family.

The Braun family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Atrium Post Acute Care of Oconto Falls, her fellow members of Grace Lutheran and many friends for the care, concern and visits given to June.
