Delores 'Dee' I. (Romnek) Braun

Delores “Dee” I. Braun, age 79, passed away on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at Wheaton Franciscan – All Saints Medical Center.  Delores was born in Racine on March 15, 1935, daughter of the late Emory and Julia (Nee:  Podoba) Romnek.

On May 5, 1956, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church she was united in marriage to James L. Braun, who preceded her in death.    Dee was employed by Dremel for thirty years, retiring in 2000.  She was a longtime member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.  She enjoyed spending time at the cabin up north, various casino trips, and Friday night fish fry's, but more than anything her family and grandchildren gave her the most joy of all.  She will be deeply missed.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Romnek; sister, Ruth Wisniewski; and brother-in-law, Warren Coffey.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 1533 Erie St., on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at 10:30 a.m.  with Rev. Steve Varghese officiating.  Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, Hwy 32.  Relatives and friends may meet with the family on Tuesday at the funeral home from 5-7 p.m. and on Wednesday at the church from 10 a.m. until time of Mass.  Memorials to St. Joseph’s Catholic Church have been suggested.
