SUN PRAIRIE, WI - Michele A. Benter, age 77 of Sun Prairie, WI, and formerly of Kenosha, passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021, at University Hospital in Madison, with her daughters by her side.

Michele was born in Kenosha on July 17, 1944, the daughter of Leo and Mary (Falduto) Venturini. She graduated from Bradford High School in Kenosha in 1962. Michele received her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from UW-Platteville and later her MBA from UW-Parkside. She was a life-long learner which allowed her to start as a receptionist and progress through various positions until she finally retired as a controller for the City of Racine.

Michele spent her time volunteering for various organizations including the Racine Literacy Council and Agrace HospiceCare. Later in life she enjoyed playing Euchre with her friends. But what was always most important to Michele was her family.
