Megan Le (Liechti) Adair, 28, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017. She was born in Shawano, Wisconsin on December 1, 1988, to Anita Gardebrecht and Ron Liechti. Megan graduated from Wrightstown High School in 2007 and married the love of her life, Patrick Adair, on June 30, 2016.
Megan created friendships she treasured with her co-workers at Cleaning Systems Incorporated in DePere. She enjoyed playing fetch with her pups – Hemi and Zeus, riding motorcycles and kayaking with her husband, relaxing and socializing with friends and family at the lake, cuddling up with the latest good book, and most importantly, she loved doting on her baby girl – Brielle Elizabeth – sharing snap-chats and videos of her latest achievements with family and friends. Her daughter brought her more joy than she could have ever imagined. She was her mom’s entire world.
Those who knew Megan, knew what an amazing wife, mother, daughter, sister, cousin and friend she was. She never hesitated to stand up for what was right, especially when it came to protecting her friends and family. At a young age she had already developed this trait, helping deter school bullies from hurting her best friend. In high school, she even quit playing basketball because her big sister sat the bench. She never admitted how much better she was at the game, instead she chose to protect her sister’s feelings, leaving behind a game she loved.
She was also very fond of food. Not only could the girl eat like a champ, but she could also mix up some of the best recipes imaginable. She enjoyed developing new concoctions, and her loved ones looked forward to indulging in her latest creations. Megan was never really a fan of desserts, but when she was pregnant with Brielle, she could down a pan of brownies in less than 60 seconds! How she stayed so skinny, others will never know.
Megan was the life of the party. The minute she walked into a room, all eyes were on her. It didn’t matter if she was with family and friends, or if she was in a completely new environment, there was a positive aura that constantly surrounded her. At family gatherings, her nieces and nephews always wanted to know when Megan was going to arrive, and once she was there, they wouldn’t leave her side. When her nephew, Brendan found out she had passed, his first words were, “but mom, she was my favorite.” She recently shined that positive light at Brielle’s daycare, showing her love to all the kiddos whenever she dropped off/picked up her baby girl.
Images of her smile and the sound of her laughter are engraved into the minds and hearts of those who loved her – those who will ensure her legacy is kept alive.
Megan is survived by her husband, Patrick, her daughter, Brielle; her parents, Ron and Gwen Liechti and Anita Gardebrecht; her in-laws, Eric and Jennifer Adair; her sisters, Wendy (Jason) Diem, Andrea (Justin) Rhode, Jenna (Kyle) Jaworski; her sister-in-law, Britteny Soukhaphaly and her husband; her nieces and nephews, Brendan, Whitney, Damian, Charlotte, Conrad, Nash, Tayden, Brixley and Decklyn; grandparents – papa Rollie Hackbarth and Jackie Mason; and dozens of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Roger and Bessie Gardebrecht, Ronald and Henrietta Liechti, Jean McClure, Cynthia and Patrick Mason, and Barbara Zwieschowski.
Her wonderful spirit, magnetic personality, and warm heart will be celebrated during visitation hours on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 5-8 p.m. at Newcomer Funeral Home in Green Bay. A memorial service is scheduled to follow the visitation at 8 PM .
