Irma was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Red Bud, IL. She was a homemaker and co-owner of Edwin Braun Trucking, Braun Meats, and farming.

Her greatest joy was her family. She enjoyed caring for her many flowers, watching her humming birds, fishing, trips to Vegas to play the slot machines, playing Bingo, and spending time and caring for her family and friends. She was the most selfless, caring person always placing everyone else before herself. She will be greatly missed

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: American Heart Association or Hospice of Southern Illinois
