Sheryl Eileen Braun, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend died peacefully on Tuesday, June 15th. Born in 1943 in Reading, Pennsylvania, Sherry graduated from nursing school and spent her adult years enriching the lives of family members and friends. Her sense of adventure took her all the way to Africa on safari and she fulfilled her philanthropic desire through years of volunteering in the Reading School District.
Sherry had a thirst for knowledge and the arts. She was a voracious reader and shared a green thumb with her son. She spent countless hours in museums across the country and listening to opera from around the world. Her love for animals meant better lives for her many cats and grand dogs through the years who found love and care within her home. Though she will be missed, her indomitable spirit will live on in all of us who loved her.
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Mark J. Braun; son and daughter in-law, Eric & Lisa Braun; her two grandchildren, Nate and Rhyan, as well as, her brother Brian (Janice) Grill; sister Susan (Jim) Cosgrave, nieces and nephews.
