Louise “Weez” Michaelson, 80, died suddenly on May 5, 2018, as the result of injuries sustained in a house fire.
Weez was born on Nov. 9, 1937, in St. Paul. She grew up in St. Anthony Park and attended Murray High School. She attended the University of Minnesota and St. Cloud State University, where she obtained a degree in elementary education. Weez spent nearly four decades teaching at Webster Magnet School in St. Paul. She never really stopped teaching or looking at the world through the eyes of a curious kindergartener. Her zest for life, compassion for everyone she ever met, and spontaneous joy will be sadly missed.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Daniel and Mildred Williams; her husband, Chuck; and her daughter, Julie Ludwig. She is survived by her son, Jeff Michaelson; two grandchildren; brother, Robert Williams, and his wife, Sonya; sister-in-law, Marge McCarty; daughter-in-law, Genevieve Gagnon; and son-in-law, Seth Ludwig. She is also survived by a vast tapestry of friends whom she accumulated along her wondrous life journey.
A memorial service will be held Friday, June 29, at 11 a.m. at the Falcon Heights United Church of Christ, 1795 Holton St.
