Addie was a devout Catholic all of her life. She delighted in participating in the many social events of the Catholic Church and she was very active in the Wahoo community.

    Family of Addie, my Mother-Helen Manstedt Breunig, married to Joe Breunig-was a life long friend of Your Mother. Born in the same year as well. My heart goes out to all of you, no matter what age we lose our parents
    it is still a great loss to us. I don’t know how many times I was told, oh but your Mother lived a long time, you should be just thankful for that. At least for me, there still is a large place in my heart that only my Mom could fill. Sharon Breunig Sherwood
