In Loving Memory of Brielle Deutscher
About Brielle Deutscher
Date of Birth: 01/21/2011
Hometown: Fargo, ND
Brielle Faith Deutscher was born on January 21, 2011 in Fargo, ND to the wonderful parents of Aaron and Allison (Mickelson) Deutscher. She was a smiling big blue-eyed girl always looking for some new adventures and exploring in her newly found world. Constantly "jabbering", she was just learning to talk and make a few new words. She was so proud that in this last week she managed to say "Mac Cheese".
Although her life was very short, she had a way to melt anyone's heart. In the last few months of her life, she learned how to do "knucks" with her little fist and began reciting her "ABC's" with her mother. She loved "trading noses" with her Grandpa Lynn and "throwing sweet, little kisses".
Every other day, she would Skype with Papa Tom and Gamma Arlene. Brielle was a "lifelong" member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Moorhead, MN, being baptized on March 6th, 2011. We believe she would have been so proud to be called a "Big Sister" to Baby Deutscher around Christmas time 2012.

On July 6, 2012, the Deutscher Family packed their vehicle for a trip to a family reunion in Bismarck, ND. It was a warm summer evening and the roads were perfectly clear. Allison and Aaron were a young couple who had just begun their family a year earlier with the birth of their blue-eyed daughter Brielle. Allison was now 3 1/2 months pregnant with their second child. This trip was a chance for them to share their excitement with family, who eagerly awaited them at their destination. But Aaron, Allison and Brielle would never arrive at their destination. In a matter of seconds, the young Deutscher Family was gone. Killed by a drunk driver whose blood alcohol was over three times the legal limit.
