Carole Ann Bragg

Carole Ann McKee was born to William Gerdes McKee and Helen Mary Murphy McKee on December 21, 1937 in Webster Groves, Missouri. She married Kenneth Gordon Bragg in Sappington, Missouri on January 11, 1958. They had two sons, Keith and Kevin. Carole and Ken were happily married for 35 years until his passing on August 26, 1993.

Carole is remembered for her love of family & friends, her warmth, compassion and beautiful smile which was given generously. She loved riding horses, water skiing, and jet skiing with her family. She was a police officer with the Live Oak Police Department in Texas and later had a career at Knob Noster State Bank where she traveled all over the country as a representative with the bank’s travel groups. Carole later came out of her well-earned retirement to work at the local JCPenney in Sedalia. She greatly valued her time there along with her lasting friendships with coworkers.

She especially loved spending time visiting her family and socializing with her friends. She loved animals, especially her family’s many dogs, with her two favorites being her spunky Australian Silkie “Butch” and her sweet Yorkshire Terrier “Rosie”.

She is survived by her oldest son Keith Boyd Bragg (Kim Knepp Bragg) of Knob Noster, MO, their children Benjamin Knepp, Brandon Kalra, Steven Thomas Kalra, Tanis Michael Bragg, Brenna Kathleen Bragg, and Kaylee Erin Bragg (Taz Salmi), and five great-grandchildren who will deeply miss their “Grammy”.

She is also survived by her youngest son Kevin Lee Bragg (Karen McCary Bragg) of Lytle, TX, their children Kevin James Brown (Cathy), Kenneth Colton Bragg, Kileen Nicole Bragg and newborn great-grandson Gavin James Felix Brown.

Carole is also survived by her three brothers Jerry McKee, Jack McKee (Candace), Ken McKee (Judy), her sister Debbie Johnson (Bill), and several nieces and nephews.

There will be no visitation, but a memorial service will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorial contributions to the Wounded Warrior Project.
