Brynlee Nicole Ochs, 1, of Perryville passed away Thursday, August 17, 2023 at her home surrounded by her loving family & friends.
She was born August 26, 2021 in Perryville to Damon Curtis and Alysha Nicole (Lohmann) Ochs.
Brynlee was baptized into the Methodist faith on May 1, 2022 at Cape LaCroix Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau, MO.
Brynlee was an unwavering ray of sunshine. She brought joy, hope, unconditional love and a warm welcome to everyone she met. She loved to acknowledge you with a beaming smile, a finger point, a high-five or “knucks”. She showed a fondness for those special to her by giving them cute nicknames and giggly greetings when she saw them. Brynlee’s earthly time was shared with countless incredible medical staff. Her energy and positivity was contagious, lending strength and happiness to all of those who cared for her. She adored her amazing and strong “bubbies”. She loved cats, milk, her blankies, books, music and dancing. Brynlee’s strength through her battle was an inspiration to all who knew her. While her presence will leave a hole in our hearts, we know she is shining down as she dances freely in heaven. She may be gone way too soon but her legacy will live on forever.
