Michele L. Steele
Dover - Age 62, passed away Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
Born October 5, 1955 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Leonard and Zelda Pearl (nee Korr), she graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School and the University of Delaware. Michele worked for the State of Delaware, Division of Child Protective Services as a Social Worker and as a Foster Home Coordinator. As a Breast Cancer Survivor, she was a local organizer of Relay For Life
. Michele was a Board Member of the Central Delaware Blues Society; supporter of the Delaware Patriot Guard Riders; a USO Representative providing support for Gold Star Families and Fallen Warriors; and the 2016 recipient of the President's Volunteer Service Award by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
How fitting it was that she gained her angel wings on July 4, as she was a dedicated volunteer of the USO, supported our troops, her beloved veterans, and was a true patriot. Her beautiful smile lit up every room and always had a big hug for all. She dedicated her time to organizations, loved listening to music and supporting bands, especially her Blues. Michele's life was rich with the love of "her girls"; her grandson (the love of her life); and her fur babies. Memories of seeing Paris with her brother and sister-in-law were always cherished.
"All you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust."
Survived by her daughters, Danielle Masterson (Justin) and Nicole Shaw; grandson, Carter; brother, Scott Pearl (Mary Anne); and half-sister, Bonnie Lily.
