Ann Lebrecht Obituary

Ann E. Lebrecht, 82, of Angola, Indiana, passed away on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, after a long battle with dementia.

She was born on June 5, 1941, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Clarence E. and Jane (Palmer) Keirns. In 1959, Ann graduated from South Side High School in Fort Wayne. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana and St. Francis University in Fort Wayne.

On March 22, 1961, she married her high school sweetheart, Theodore G. “Ted” Lebrecht. Together, their life was full of adventures.

They enjoyed all the outdoor activities living at the lake provided - boating, skiing, skating, sledding, to name a few. Their travels usually involved trips to National Parks where they hiked and explored together. Ann enjoyed teaching school at Prairie Heights, playing cards with friends, reading, and spoiling her many cats. But her greatest joy came from spending time with family - endlessly pulling skiers, watching grandchildren swim, and dishing out ice cream.

She is survived by her daughters, Laura (Mark) Wolski of Apex, North Carolina, Betsy (Mike) Pitts of Zionsville, Indiana and Susan Coonan of Angola, Indiana; her sister, Sara McCormack of Madison, Wisconsin; 7 beloved grandchildren (Matthew, Julia, Daniel, Rachel, Katie, Elana, and Jenny); 7 beloved great-grandchildren (Maya, Claire, Myles, Micah, Erin, Parker, and Lucy) and her special companion, John Williamson of Angola, Indiana.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband of 50 years, and two sisters, Barbara Brokaw and Mary McBride.

Visitation will be at 1 pm on Saturday, February 10, at the Presbyterian Chapel of the Lakes in Angola, Indiana. Memorial Services will follow at 2 pm. Interment will be immediately after the service in the Memorial Gardens of the Presbyterian Chapel of the Lakes.

Memorial donations may be made to the Humane Shelter of Steuben County, Angola, Indiana.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
