Marguerite "Sis" Ann Braun

Marguerite Ann (Witt) Braun, affectionately known as Sis, age 93, of Lyons, Ohio, peacefully entered into eternal rest, Monday morning, January 7, 2019, at the Swanton Health Care and Retirement Center.  Sis was born June 26, 1925 in Metamora, Ohio to Francis Xavier and Elizabeth (Dickerson) Witt. She married Irvin Braun, and he preceded her in death.

A devout Catholic, Sis was a  member of Holy Trinity Catholic Parish.  She looked forward  attending the Metamora and Berkey Senior Citizens group functions, and loved playing cards and Scrabble.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Frances (Earl) Marx, Marie Landin, Martha (Dennis) Floyd, Wilma Lanning, Edward (Wally) Braun, Margaret (Terry) Higgins and Anthony Braun; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; as well as her brothers, Samuel and William Witt and sister, Betty Coss.

Besides her husband, Irvin, Sis was preceded in death by her parents, Francis and Elizabeth; great-grandson, Zackary Floyd; sisters, Mary Miller and Helen Franklin; and brothers, James, Charles, Robert, Raymond and Edward Witt and her close friend, John Wingerd.

Family and friends may visit Wednesday, January 9th, from 2 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton (419.826.2631), where a Vigil service will be held at 7:00 p.m.  A Mass of Resurrection will be held Thursday, January 10th at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Assumption, with Fr. Michael Dandurand presiding.  Interment will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery.

The family extends a heartfelt thank you to the nurses and staff at Swanton Health Care and Retirement Center for the wonderful care they provided Sis over the years, as well as Great Lakes Caring Hospice.

Memorial contributions may be made to Holy Trinity Church.

We were so sad to read about Sis passing. Didn't realize her age!! Was that the Witt in her? Tim and I are sorry for your loss, but happy knowing that she's in the company of her brothers and sisters, and loved ones! I can almost hear the cards being shuffled!! Our condolences to each of you. And hope that you have wonderful memories of her. As I do. Blessings! Tim and Pat Hausch
