Throughout her life, Michelle was characterized by her loving heart and selfless personality. She was always there for anyone who needed advice or comfort, and she made a significant impact on all those she encountered. As a dedicated wife, mother, and mamaw, she poured her heart into her family and was always ready with a warm smile, a comforting word, or a loving embrace. Her unwavering faith was an inspiration to those around her and a testament to her belief in the power of love and kindness. Michelle was an integral part of her workplace in Zanesville, where she served as a Supervisor at the Minimus Distribution Center. Outside of work, Michelle was a member of the House of Grace Church.
