Michele proudly served her country in the Army National Guard for six years. Michele was a real animal lover with a special place in her heart for horses and dogs. She not only owned horses, but avidly and successfully participated in horse competitions as a youth and young adult. Her whole life she had her beloved dogs, and owned four chihuahuas at the time of her passing. She also worked in her father’s building company as an office manager for many years. A great mom and loving mother to Lexi and daughter to her parents. Michele had an extra special relationship with Noah, her grandson. He named her “Memaw” and she loved him to the moon, stars, and back. She graduated from Fairfield High School, in Cincinnati, Ohio, but a special accomplishment for her was the year spent in the School of Ministries, at her church, New Hope Ministries, in Naples, Florida. Michele will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
