Mrs. O'Brecht was a neighbour and client of Debb and family for many years. She was always a pleasure to see. She always had kind words and always made us smile. We are friends of Jim & Karen's through Mike and Angela Stortz. We had shared many good times and laughs. Mrs. O'Brecht will be sadly missed. She was a pleasure to know...
