Richard Rath, pastor of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Old Monroe, and Chris Bromwich will give a eulogy. Private Inurnment will be in Immaculate Conception Cemetery near Old Monroe. Mr. Obrecht, 78, passed away early Sunday morning, November 22, 2020 at the home of his daughter. Born July 24, 1942 in St. Peters, MO, he was the son of Glennon William and Edith Marie Bethman Obrecht. Glen’s love for the outdoors started at a young age. As a teen, Glen would walk the railroad tracks to the Bethman family farm on Sunday evenings. He would spend the week there working for Charlie and Tate. Glen would then take the tracks back home for the weekend. Glen was united in marriage on March 3, 1962 in St. Paul, MO to Kathleen Kay “Kate” Ash. This union was blessed with three children: Glennon Anthony, Debora Kay and Jennifer Lynn. Hunting, fishing and gardening with Kate were not only hobbies, but a livelihood. Working 30 years for Ahal Contracting Co, Inc., as a cement finisher, brought Glen to retirement at a young, healthy age of 55. Still enjoying the hunting and fishing when the St. Paul home was sold. Northward bound, Glen and Kate bought “The Farm” up by Mark Twain Lake. This move not only provided great hunting on their property for them, but the grandsons also. Glen and Kate later sold the farm, downsized and moved to Foley to be closer to their children. Glen continued to hunt, fish and garden for a few more years. Glen was a longtime member of the Pioneer Trail & Tree Coon Hunters Association, member of the Knights of Columbus through St. Paul Catholic Church in St. Paul, MO and also a member of the Cement Masons Local #527 in St. Louis, MO. He was preceded in death by his parents, Glennon W. and Edith Obrecht; his beloved wife of 49 years, Kate Obrecht, who died on April 12, 2011; his son, Glen A. Obrecht; one granddaughter, Grace Metz; and one brother-in-law, George Isbell. Survivors include his daughters: Debora Roberts and her husband, Mark, of Old Monroe and Jennifer Metz and her husband, Rich, of Washington, MO; and seven grandchildren: Chris Bromwich and his wife, Abby, of Moscow Mills, MO, Jason Bromwich of Winfield, Joe Bromwich of Old Monroe, Brian Obrecht and his wife, Becky, of Winfield, Samantha Bobeen and her husband, Lance, of Troy, MO, Danny Obrecht of O’Callon, MO and Reed Metz of Washington; and eleven great-grandchildren: Sierra, Sam, Caden, Peyton, Kathleen, Luke, Alex, Finn, Penelope, Steele, Harper and Winston.
