Jean Brecheisen died this past Thursday. I can’t find the obituary online, so I’m including it here.
Jean Brecheisen passed away peacefully on December 7, 2023, with her family by her side. She was born to Delbert and Olive Vinton on June 4, 1929. Jean was raised on a farm near Melvern, Kansas. She had three older sisters, Idelle, Edith, and Wilma. She married her lifelong partner, Max Brecheisen, on October 30, 1949. They were married for nearly 70 years. For twenty years, she was a Marine Corps spouse. They had three sons together. Jerry, Neal, and Mark.
After his military service, she worked with her husband in starting his career with Radio Shack. Upon retirement, they built a home on the farmstead where Jean grew up. They raised purebred Hereford cattle on their M&J farm. They retired from the farm in 2000 and moved to Manhattan, Kansas.
