Stunning, shocking and heartbreaking news to hear about Michele's tragic passing. On behalf of my parents, Rudy and Irene, my brother Les, my sister Juli and myself, we offer our heartfelt condolences to Michael and the entire family. We knew Michele as a kind, tolerant, vibrant, independent, sister in law, who was always smiling, ready to listen and willing to help in any way she could. The impact she had on our lives will be with us forever. We miss you and we love you, Michele. Rest in peace.

Words cannot describe how very sad I am to hear about Michele's passing. She was such a beautiful soul inside & out, and had a heart of gold. Her children were everything to her. When she spoke of them, her face would literally light up. They were her pride & joy. She will be greatly missed by many. God Bless Michele's family at this difficult time.

Austin, Bradley & Morgan...You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Try to find comfort in knowing you will be with your dear Mother again. She will always be near.
Love you,

This morning our family was so sad to learn of the tragic passing of Michele. She was such a sweet and beautiful person. Pete and I just ran into Michele and Bob a few weeks back at a local restaurant. It was always so nice to chat and catch up on our families. Many hugs, thoughts and prayers from our family to yours. Love, The Steixner Family

Many years ago I was very good friends with Michele and her twin brother Michael. I haven’t seen Michele for years, but can still see her pretty face and smile and hear her lovely voice and laugh in my mind. I am so very sad for her dear brother Michael and her family. She was a gem of a person.
