Mary Victoria Braun

Mary Victoria Braun of St. Michaels, MD died peacefully August 26,2022, after a long struggle with her health. She was 82 years old.

Vicki was born in Salt Lake City, UT and grew up primarily in northern Virginia. She graduated from Washington & Lee High School and James Madison University. She taught elementary school for nearly 25 years, retiring from Mt. Vernon Elementary School in Alexandria, VA. Vicki enjoyed playing golf at Army Navy Country Club and was known to hostess many a boisterous Alexandria party.

From Alexandria, she and her husband, Bill moved to St. Michaels, MD. Vicki was a real estate agent for Long & Foster for several years and eventually retired from the renowned Ninth Hole in Martingham. Vicki volunteered for the Waterfowl Festival for 20 years, serving as co-curator for the Sculpture Exhibit. Vicki was an artist in her own right, carving and painting a houseful of beautiful decoy ducks. Vicki was an avid golfer at Harbourtowne Golf Resort and enjoyed spending time at the Miles River Yacht Club. Her dinner parties were legendary.

Vicki was larger than life and enjoyed her life to the absolute fullest. Her love was effusive and she was loved back.

Vicki is survived by her husband of 51 years, Bill Braun. Her son, Rick Pace of Columbia, MO, his children Jed and Lily. Her daughter, Della Patteson and her husband, John, and their children Campbell and Mary Davis of Cherry Hills Village, CO.; her step-daughter, Tracey Braun and her husband Chris McIsaac of Washington, DC and their children, Duncan, Jak and Jessie; her sister, Sharon Callagy and husband David of Chevy Chase, MD; her brother Barney Doran and wife Tone of Marbella, Spain; her nieces and nephews; and all her wonderful friends near and far.

Vicki was not a fan of funerals, much preferring, as you may guess, a party…
