In attendance were her beloved husband, Laurin, several family members and friends. Rachelle ‘Sherri' Yvonne, the eldest child of Floyd and Mildred McCone, was born in Roswell, NM. The McCone family moved to Southern California during Sherri's school years. There, Sherri developed a lifelong love of the ocean and a fascination with dolphins.

In her later adult life, desiring to be nearer to family, she moved to the beautiful Rogue Valley. On June 3, 1987, she married Laurin Braun. They had a beautiful and loving relationship of more than 40 years. Between them they had five children: Tina, Todd, and Robert Vandergrind; Melinda and Ira Braun.
