Michele Lee Reed was born to Terrance and Virginia (Fredericks) Reed on September 4, 1970, in Cloquet. She graduated from Princeton High School in 1989. Michele met the love of her life, Troy Philip Eggen, and they were married on January 26, 1991, in Milaca.

Michele will always be remembered for how much she loved her family. The days she spent with her grandchildren were always cherished. She could light up the room with her smile, and she had an infectious laugh. Michele enjoyed painting, refinishing furniture, watching movies, and she had a keen eye for decorating. She walked strongly in her faith as a Christian, and her love of the Lord was evident in all she did. Michele was always selfless and forgiving and would do anything for those she loved. Above all else, she will be dearly missed as an amazing wife, mother, Nana, daughter, sister, and friend to all who knew her.

Michele is survived by her husband, Troy; sons, Michael Eggen of Zimmerman and Brent (Josie) Eggen of Princeton; grandchildren, Scarlett and Bailen; siblings, Jennifer (Ken) Kisrow of St. Francis, Terry (Janel) Reed of Princeton, and Mary (Russel) Eggen of Princeton; and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents; mother-in-law, Marlene Eggen; brother-in-law, Bryce Eggen; and numerous other relatives.
