Corrie Elizabeth Bruun
March 11, 1980 - January 24, 2012
Corrie was born March 11, 1980 in Salem, Oregon to David and Jeanne Bruun. She graduated from South Salem High School, and worked for six years as a teaching assistant for Headstart. A member of Salem Evangelical, she was involved in her community as an advocate for Headstart and working with Stitches and Xtreme Tours Ministry, which works with homeless youth. Corrie had a passion for kids.
Corrie loved Jesus with all her heart and is now with him. She would want all to know that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. She had an amazing voice, and her dream was to sing. She lived her life with passion and had a heart of gold.
Corrie was preceded in death by her father, David Bruun. She is survived by her four sons, Jimmy, Noah, Isaiah and Josiah of Salem; mother Jeanne Bruun of Salem; brother Ted (Suzanne) Bruun of Franklin, Tennessee; and sister Wendy (Steven) Schmaltz of La Center, Washington.
