A private service for Linda Marie Brechtel, a former beautician, was held today in St. Paul's Catholic Church, Kenmore. Burial was in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Town of Tonawanda.
Miss Brechtel, 59, died Saturday (Sept. 15, 2001) in Kenmore Mercy Hospital after a long battle with kidney disease.
A lifelong Kenmore resident and graduate of Kenmore High School, Miss Brechtel was a licensed beautician who had a shop in her home for many years. She later worked in food services on the North Campus of the University at Buffalo.
She is survived by a close companion, Louis Markiewicz of Kenmore; and a sister, Jeanette Mueller of Amherst.
