Michelle was employed as a registered nurse in Saginaw, and at Aspirus-Ironwood (formerly Grand View Hospital) for 35 years.
Michelle loved caring for birds and flowers, and enjoyed reading, boating, camping and traveling. Retirement allowed her to spend winters in Florida and summers in Ironwood. She enjoyed beading and made beautiful jewelry and ornaments for her family and friends.
Michelle was a warm, outgoing person who cared deeply for all her friends, co-workers and family. She loved life and interacting with people. She was a happy, beautiful woman inside and out with a calming demeanor. She will be dearly missed by her family and her many friends. She was a great example of selflessness and left a legacy for her children and husband to remember her by. She will always be their shining star.
