Creative, kind, courageous, and beautiful inside and out, Michelle brought joy and made meaningful contributions wherever she worked be it the Milwaukee County Government, Jefferson Elementary School, or on behalf of her family, friends, and neighbors. Her adventurous spirit and practical “know how” made her the planner, “navigator”, and “load master” on countless family trips. A huge Wisconsin sports fan. Her family and friends were the most important things in her life. She passed away just two weeks shy of her 70th Birthday and awaiting her soon-to-be born granddaughter. Her family would also like to thank Dr. Timothy Fenske and his team (especially Julie Pruett, APNP) at Froedtert Hospital for over a decade of highly competent and compassionate care.
