Beloved daughter, mother and Glamma. Life-long civic volunteer and philanthropist. Since 1989 Michaela has served on over 30 boards and guilds including, the Aksarben Foundation’s Women’s Ball Committee, Ballet Omaha, Clarkson Hospital Service League, and Omaha Performing Arts.
In her early years she enjoyed working in the fashion industry at Brandies & Sons where she traveled the world from Hong Kong to NYC as a buyer. Her best days were spent playing golf at Happy Hollow Club where she had two hole-in-ones, driving her turquoise thunderbird with the top down, music up with the wind blowing through her hair. Michaela’s greatest joy was time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and friends outdoors with the sun shining bright. She was so many things to so many people and loved life.
