Cornelius Braun

1943 – 2019 

Cornie Braun, aged 75 of Winkler, MB formerly of Chortitz, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at Boundary Trails Health Centre due to complications of Diabetes. 

Cornie will be greatly missed by his wife, Betty Ann (nee Letkeman), one son, Darren Braun, two daughters, Angela and her husband, Robert Peters and Melissa and her husband, Jason Fehr, two grandchildren, Saulomon Fehr and Mackenzie Peters.  Also left to mourn his passing are his brothers, John (Irene), George (Linda) and Peter (Susan) as well as sister-in-law, Viola Barkman (Randy), brothers-in-law, Dave Penner, Jake Letkeman (Bea) and Gary Letkeman as well as many nieces and nephews. 

Dad was a good provider for the family, spending most of his life as a truck driver. He enjoyed celebrations; birthdays, Easter, but especially Christmas. He loved spoiling his family with surprises and gifts, especially his grandchildren Saul and Mackenzie. Dad was larger than life. When he entered the room, you knew it. Dad enjoyed life, family and friends. He had an easy laugh and a gruff exterior that protected the soft heart he had inside. He could be opinionated and stubborn, but also funny and clever. He loved Betty Ann and his family fiercely. We will miss Dad but know that he was at peace at the time of his passing and that we will see him again. 

Memorial service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday February 24, 2019 at the Winkler Evangelical Mennonite Church with interment prior at Westridge Memorial Gardens. 

As a family we would like to express our gratitude for the care dad received at Boundary Trails Health Centre. Special thanks to Dr. Gacutan for his care, Stephen Siemens, James Peters and the members of the EMM Church for their support.
