Obituary for Muriel Irene Fresard

FRESARD MURIEL IRENE Age 90 of Rochester Hills. June 7, 2019. Beloved wife of the late Thomas for 57 years. Dear mother of Thomas (Deborah), Mark (Lorie), Michele (Kevin) Bates and the late Lisbeth Froumis. Dear sister of Delores Killian (Joe) and Mary Theresa (Edward) Caldwell. Also survived by nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Muriel will be sorely missed by her family and many friends.



Muriel loved to ski and followed that passion by working as a registered nurse in hospitals near the slopes in Minnesota, Sun Valley, Idaho and finally New Mexico where she met Thomas, who was stationed there as military police. They married, settled in Michigan and raised 4 children. Muriel loved her Catholic faith and was always involved in her parish from singing in the choir at St. Lucy in Saint Clair Shores in early life to organizing Eucharistic adoration at St. Andrew in Rochester Hills in her golden years. After she retired from nursing she worked in hospice, jail ministry, visited group homes with Operation Sunshine, was a member of the Legion of Mary and an active advocate in the pro-life movement. When not volunteering she would play a fiercely competitive round of golf or tend to her beautiful flower garden.



Funeral Mass Saturday, June 15, 2019, 10 a.m. at St. Andrew Catholic Church, 1400 Inglewood, Rochester. The family will receive friends, Friday, June 14, 2019, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Potere-Modetz Funeral Home, 339 Walnut Blvd., Rochester. Entombment Resurrection Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Mother and Unborn Baby Care in Southfield, MI.
