Michele Rodgers

March 8, 1967 ~ July 24, 2017

Service: July 29, 2017 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM
   Location: The Lindley Pavilion

Michele Cesarz Rodgers, 50, of Bozeman, MT, passed away on July 24, 2017. She was born March 8, 1967 in Milwaukee, WI, to Gerald and Mary Cesarz of Oconomowoc, WI. Michele fought a brief, courageous battle with a rare form of aggressive lymphatic cancer.  She quietly departed this life surrounded by family and close friends in Bozeman.

Michele is survived by her parents; sister, Jacqueline (James) Hall, of Oconomowoc; sister, Racquel (Cory) Klumb, of Bozeman; brother, Jerome (Erin) Cesarz, of Waukesha; and by her six beloved nieces and nephews – Piper, Jacob, Joseph, Ellie, Cece, and Nick.  She graduated from Oconomowoc High School in 1985 and spent the last ten years living in Montana – adopting the Big Sky country as her new home and making close, dear friendships.

The family wishes to thank the courageous efforts of the staff at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, the compassionate care of the staff at the Bozeman Lodge and Hospice of Bozeman Health.

Family, friends, and others whose lives Michele touched are invited to a celebration of her life at the Lindley Park Pavilion, Saturday, July 29th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
