Jennifer was born December 1, 1976 in Independence the daughter of David and Debra (Van Daele) Albrecht. She graduated from Oelwein High School in 1995. On April 23, 2005 she was united in marriage with Bradley Hunziker in Fairbank. Jennifer was the Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Estes Agronomic Int’l. She also was a great mother and homemaker. If Jennifer had one fault it was always being late for anything she attended. She enjoyed a good story and she always told the long version, had a great memory and never forgot anything, which also worked well with her story telling. She was a big dreamer and fought a valiant and courageous battle against Lyme Disease the last seven years. Jennifer helped many others who suffered from Lyme Disease; but her greatest love was her family, they meant everything to her. Jennifer touched many lives and will be dearly missed by all.
Jennifer is survived by her husband Brad of Fairbank; her three children: Morgan, Brexton and Sadie; two brothers: Jason (Jamie) Albrecht of Hazleton and Quinn (Nicole) Albrecht of Indianola; parents Debra (Edward) Bormann of Oelwein and David (Kris) Albrecht of Fairbank; grandmother Angeline Van Daele of Fairbank; mother-in-law Patricia (Ed) Husmann of Independence and father-in-law Larry (Pat) Hunziker of Shellsburg and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
