Michele enjoyed fishing and camping with her husband.

She loved her quality time with her daughter Heather floating in the pool and lounging on the deck on hot days. She loved BBQ's on the deck with friends and family. She especially enjoyed her trips to the slots with her special sister-in-law Ella. Michele had a love for the holidays. She enjoyed dressing up every Halloween to greet the children at the door. She loved her dog Scamp and he surely will miss her!
Michele was a hard worker. She worked many years at Dexter Shoe until the doors closed. She moved on to Creative Apparel making many close friends along the way. She spent her last few years cleaning and substitute teaching at MSAD #41. She enjoyed the "cleaning crew" and being around the children.
