There are several children of the marriage who are reasonably easy to trace to the present day, perhaps they could help.

Edwin Emil R Odebrecht (dob 19/4/1926 according to death reg) doesn't pop up with that spelling on Ancestry German records. 

Searching the surname only, no dob, in Germany brings up a number of Odebrecht names.

You may have to get the marriage cert for Father's name/occupation to get a better clue where to look.

Added in case you don't have the ref
