Updated: Mar 25

BRAUER, CARROLL VERN, 98, born on Oct. 27, 1925, in San Mateo, C.A., died on Dec. 30, 2023, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospice in Hendersonville, N.C. Born to Carroll Vern Brauer Sr. and Gladys Maine (Smith) Brauer, he embarked on a lifelong journey of faith and service. After graduating from Pacific Union College in 1947, Brauer married Alice Bickett. The couple entered pastoral ministry within the Oklahoma Conference, utilizing their musical talents to draw people to Christ. Ordained in 1951, Brauer’s dedication to his faith took him and his family to Egypt in 1952, where he served as president of the Upper Egyptian Mission, training young pastors until 1956. His commitment continued as he held positions such as departmental secretary of the Nile Union Mission from 1957 to 1962, and later, roles within the Middle East Division and the Colorado and Potomac Conferences. Brauer’s pastoral ministry spanned decades, with notable service in Colorado, the Chapel Haven and Louisville churches, and, after retirement, the Strasburg church in Virginia from 1991 to 2008. He retired with his wife to Fletcher Park Inn in Hendersonville, N.C., where they spent their final years. Brauer’s life was a testament to his unwavering faith in Jesus Christ and his belief in eternal life. Predeceased by his parents, wife Alice, sister Barbara, stepfather Samuel Meier, and grandson Joel, he is survived by his sons, Robert, James, Ronald, and Marvin Brauer; eight grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
