Mary Roberta Braun, age 74, of Lake Villa, passed away on January 10, 2019. She was born to Samuel and Mary Gladys (Mitchel) Fasano on July 9, 1944. On September 26, 1964, she was united in marriage to Wayne Edward Braun in Round Lake.
For over 20 years, Mary worked at a number of other banks prior to her employment at BMO Harris Bank, where she ascended the ranks from Banking Officer to Vice President, retiring in 2008. Her family meant the world to her and Mary doted upon her grandchildren at every opportunity.
In her free time, Mary enjoyed frequenting flea markets and searching for antique finds. She grew fruits and vegetables in her garden, cooked delicious meals that her family will never forget, and owned two dogs, Ted and Thor, who she loved with all her heart.
She is survived by her children, Gina Braun Frisell and Wayne C. (Kelly) Braun; six grandchildren, Amber, Aaron, Cal, Cailynn, Katelyn, and Nico; a great-grandchild, Myles; three brothers, Terry (Nora) Fasano, Mike (Kathy) Fasano, and John (Janet) Fasano; and a cousin, Robert (Nancy) Wiswald.
In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne, on January 23, 2009.
