Passed Away July 4, 2009

Michele, Elke’s mom and beloved wife of Richard for 31 years, passed away Saturday, July 4, 2009, at about 9:00 in the evening. It was very sudden and totally unexpected. Michele was the Mom of Elke the Eskie and Brix the Great Pyrennes. Michele was a great favorite of everyone at the reunions. She was so artistic and created such beautiful things. Each year she would create a beautiful handmade card for Grandma Ruth. She brought beauty into the lives of everyone she met. We will all miss her.
