Braun, Jr and Edrita (nee Ford) Braun; beloved mother of Christy Braun; proud grandmother of Zachary Iversen and Nathan Iversen; dear sister of Virginia Mensinga and Ford Braun. Muffin spent her life putting a smile on other people's faces. She was extremely loving, personable and outgoing. She enjoyed going on trips with her family and loved spending time with her grandsons. She spent 10+ great years working for Security Protection, an alarm company started and owened by her mom Edrita Ford Braun. She also spent 5 + years with Dean Witter in downtown Chicago and over 10+ years with the Northern Trust bank. Muffin also had a great love for animals, as she rescued many animals from local shelters and cared for them in her home. Muffin was an avid Chicago Bears Fan, who never missed watching a game in person or on television. She was a member of Kenilworth Union Church. Muffin will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Our prayer is that she is at peace and back in the arms of her mother who was her lifelong "sidekick".
