Carolyn I. Bramschreiber, age 84, Abrams, was called home on Sunday, December 6, 2020. She was born May 9, 1936 to the late Robert C. and Nora M. (Mattingly) Mattingly in Louisville, Kentucky. She attended Valley High School in Louisville. On February 5, 1955, she married Ray Bramschreiber in Louisville, Kentucky; he preceded her in death March 28, 2012.
Carolyn enjoyed spending time with family especially during the holidays. Christmas was her favorite time of year. Carolyn was a God loving mother who always gave a kiss goodbye and had a story to tell. We will always remember to be careful and watch for deer. Her positive attitude added years to her life as she never gave up the fight to get better. She enjoyed reading, water therapy and singing. Anyone that knew her knew that she had the voice of an angel; and she is now singing in God’s choir. She was a member of the Suamico United Methodist Church for over 60 years, where she sang in the choir and was active in the United Methodist Women for many years. Carolyn worked for Wisconsin Research and Maintenance Engineering cleaning at NWTC.
She is survived by her son, Dennis Bramschreiber, Sobieski; two daughters, Debra (Tom) Erdman, Pensaukee and Diane (David) Longsine, Abrams; five grandchildren, Tyler, Rayanna and Jennifer Longsine and Rebekah and Jonathan Erdman; and her brother-in-law, Dean (Ann) Bramschreiber, Green Bay; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends also survive.
In addition to her parents and husband, Ray; she is preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Pam; her sister, Anna Mae (David) Caplinger; an infant sister, Patsy Jane Mattingly; her brother, Robert L. (Alberta) Mattingly; brothers-in-law, Harold “Bud” (Rachel) Bramschreiber, John Bramschreiber. Robert “Bob” (Ethel Svetnicka) Bramschreiber and James Bramschreiber; her sister-in-law, Fern (Leroy) Wussow; and an infant brother-in-law, Roy.
