Brecken had an infectious personality from the time she was very young. People were drawn to her beauty which was inside and out. She would light up a room with her beautiful smile. She never knew a stranger. She was the light of our lives and brought so much sunshine to all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Brecken loved to be outdoors. She loved hunting, fishing and shooting her firearms. There wouldn’t be a day when you saw her that she wouldn't have on her camouflage with her hat on backwards. She loved to be around people and lived life to the fullest in the short time she was here with us. Brecken will be sorely missed by all who knew her and will never be forgotten. There will never be another one quite like our Brecken.
Brecken is survived by her parents, Leo and Terri Hughes; Her brother, Slater Hughes and his wife Mindy; Her niece, Peyton Barham; Her maternal grandmother, Mrs. Mary D. Flint; Her significant other, Cody Denton and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Her fur babies were the loves of her life, Flintsky, Bulleit, Lyric and Booger.
