Demrie Bratt died the evening of Monday, Aug. 13, 2018, surrounded by family after a courageous year-long battle with cancer.
She was known for her love of Jesus, green thumb, baking abilities, beautiful singing voice, love for others, kindness and a smile that lit up a room. She lived and shared her life with an overwhelming love, endless compassion and gentle guidance that impacted many. Her life and legacy will live on through the many women she discipled, through her family, and through the lives she touched by handling her diagnosis with such grace. She lived an extraordinary life; Jesus always gave her just enough grace for today.
Demrie is survived by parents Marty and Theresa Bratt, siblings Kylie (Justin) Stern, Drayson (Caitlyn) Bratt, her “boys” — nephews Dawson and Amos Stern; grandparents Rod and Louise Garvin; and numerous other relatives.
Her Celebration of Life will be Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018, at 2 p.m. at Snowy Range Evangelical Free Church in Laramie. A reception will follow.
