Michele T. Ricard

Sep 29, 1962 – Nov 30, 2017

Preceded in death by father, Lyle; mother, Mary; sister, Denise.  Survived by fiancé, Paul Yahnke, sons, Danny and Zach; sisters, Yvonne and Marie; brothers: Lyle, Brian, Greg, and Michael; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends.

Michele was a beloved figure at North High Magnet School, as a curriculum specialist and teacher since 2004. She was the baby sister in a family with eight siblings. She grew up in Northridge, California and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.  She excelled in school, graduating from the University of Kansas and then receiving her Master’s in Science from the University of Nebraska Lincoln.  Her warmth and sense of humor were appreciated by all who knew her.  Her love of teaching and adventure took her to many interesting places in her life, but none so fascinating as where she rests in the Lord now.  Her sons, Danny and Zach, will especially miss the love of a caring mother.  Her fiancé, Paul will miss the love of a beautiful smile.

A Celebration of Michele’s life will take place Sunday, December 10th, from 2pm to 4pm at Omaha North High School.
