Michelle was born July 4, 1963 in Freeport, IL to Merle and Dianne (Feltmeyer) Gothard. She married Leonard Weiler on Sept. 14, 1991 at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Mendota Heights. Michelle was very fortunate to hold many positions in her lifetime however, she found her home and niche at Lawson Family Dental. She cherished time spent with her family and friends. Whispering Pines and Mexico held a special place in her heart. She was a constant champion for the proposition of “more boat rides, less fishing”. She was extremely proud of her children and the life she created for her family in Sartell. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. There is no doubt that her friendship was an inspiration and her love a blessing. She will be missed but never forgotten.

Survivors include her husband, Len; children, Zoe and Zach all of Sartell; parents, Merle (Sharon) Gothard of Stockton, IL; Dianne (Ralph) Bass of Lena, IL; brother, Michael (Karen) Gothard of Richmond, VA; step-grandfather, William Murphy of Lena, IL; mother-in-law, Margaret Weiler of Long Prairie and brother-in-law, Gregory (Tammie) Weiler of Long Prairie. She was preceded in death by her sister, Angela Gothard; grandparents, H.C. Feltmeyer, Virginia Feltmeyer-Murphy, Maynard & Ethel Gothard; father-in-law, John Weiler and brother-in-law, Daniel Weiler.
