Michele M. Berres Michele M. Berres

Michele Marie Berres, nee Moore, 63, of West Bend, found peace on Saturday, March 21, 2020, after several years of health struggles following a stroke. Jesus was singing over her as she was taken to her eternal home.
Michele was born October 23, 1956, in Milwaukee to Sylvia (nee Haag) and the late Patrick James Moore. She attended West Bend East High School, graduating in 1974. Michele was active in Girl Scouts, choir, musicals and forensics.
On September 18, 1976, Michele married John Berres at Holy Angels Catholic Church. Two days later, she started a 28+ year career at Serigraph in a variety of job positions from the manufacturing floor to shift supervisor to the sales office. Michele was employed at RR Donnelly until her stroke forced an early retirement. Working beside her husband John, Michele also helped to maintain the Berres family dairy farm located outside of Boltonville. She was proud of what they created together and enjoyed sharing their farming life with her nieces and nephews. Michele also had a passion for movies, especially the classics and MGM musicals. She enjoyed bird watching, crossword puzzles, and any game that involved trivia.
Michele is survived by her husband, John; mother, Sylvia; sisters, Sheila (Jerry) Goehring, Mary (Rob) Moore-Geissler, Christina (Stuart) Jones; brother Sean (Anne); brothers-in-law; sisters-in-law; nieces, nephews, other relatives, co-workers and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, and her parents-in-law, Andrew and Gertrude Berres.
A public memorial service and celebration of life will be held at a future date.
