Brunhilde Wilhelmine Settle passed on and went to be with the Lord, on September 4, 2020. She was born March 30, 1932 to Bruno and Hildegard Jorczik in Lyck, Prussia. She enjoyed her childhood in an idyllic setting where Brunhilde ice skated and spent Sunday’s visiting with her family. When the Russians invaded Germany in World War II, Brunhilde and her mother fled to northern Europe and spent the remainder of the war there until the Jorczik family was reunited in Neubiberg, West Germany, a suburb of Munich, Germany. Brunhilde continued her education at Munich-Passau Institute and became an interpreter for the US Air Force upon completing her degree. It was during this time she met James Morgan Settle, who she married on June 14, 1951 and the marriage produced 4 children. After many moves across the country and around the world, the Settle family became permanent residents in and around the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma area. Shortly after moving to Oklahoma, Brunhilde continued her education at Black College in Oklahoma City, obtaining an Associates Degree in Business. In 1967, she went to work at National Car Rental and later in 1972, entered the travel industry as Manager of Enterprise Travel. Brunhilde spent the rest of her career as a travel agent specializing in International travel and cruises. She retired from Dillard’s Travel in 2009, but not before she toured the world, including Russia, China and Africa.
