Beloved Michele Console, 74, passed away Wednesday, December 5, 2012, surrounded by family at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford, Ore. Michele was born Dec. 19, 1937, in San Gregorio, D'ippona, Italy to Francesco Console and Anna Ruffa. He is survived by his beautiful wife Petra Claudia Console whom he married in 1977. He and Petra came to Medford in 1992 from California. Michele worked for Jackson Travel Agency for 20 years. He was a parishioner of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. When his children were married he never looked at it as losing a child but gaining a new one. Michele's positive spirit, love of life, and unwavering support will always be felt and never forgotten by his family and everyone who met him.
We will love him forever. Survivors in addition to his wife Petra include his daughter, Annette Console Doelger and husband Damon and his two grandsons Noah and Micah; his son Francesco and wife, Coral; sister Caterina Ruffa and brother Vincenzo Console of Italy; Antonio Console of Medford, Ore.; and sister Elisabetta Console of San Francisco, Calif.
Michele will be laid to rest in a private family ceremony in Memory Gardens Memorial Park. Memory Gardens Memorial Park & Mortuary are in care of arrangements.
