Michele was a faithful parishioner of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and a beloved member of the church sewing group. She was a 1977 graduate of Duchesne High School. Michele’s working life was diverse, but she always remained involved in service to her community. She served as a fire and ambulance dispatcher for O’Fallon, Lake St. Louis, St. Charles City and St. Charles county. Her passion for serving others led her involvement with St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness. Michele also worked within human resources for the city of O’Fallon.
Over the years, Michele worked as a floor manager at Von Maur, a store manager for Bernina Sewing, a sales rep for a grocery brokerage firm, a teacher’s aide with Immaculate Conception Church, and was an amazingly talented seamstress in many capacities. Above everything, Michele loved her family and always made sure to take care of them. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
