Wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, teacher. Ranaye (Saueressig) Braley, age 39, passed away on March 6, 2018 in her home after a courageous battle with leukemia. She was surrounded by love, light, and family.

While working as a waitress in Snowmass, Colorado she met her husband, Marcus Braley. Ranaye and Marcus married in 2007 and were blessed with two beautiful children.
