Michele received Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior at a young age while she attended school at Holy Rosary Academy in Bay City that love continued to grow and cultivated into every aspect of her life. She shared her love of God with everyone she came in contact with it radiated through her not only in words but also by her actions and deeds.

After graduation, Michele later went on to business school at Northeastern School of Commerce in Bay City where she received her diploma Specializing in information data processing and word processing correspondence specialist. She was also an honors graduate.

Michele worked for many years as a customer service representative with a background in sales and marketing. She also worked in sales and as a claims adjuster for State Farm Insurance, AIG Insurance, Northway Insurance, and Doty Insurance. She also worked for Miracle-Ear as an office coordinator before retiring to go on the road with her husband. She had seen the world from state to state on the big rig until her services were needed at home to take care of her two granddaughters, a job that she treasured dearly.

Michele would never do anything for herself or her benefit; she always sacrificed her time, talents & treasures for others. Not only did she become a caregiver to many family members in their last days. She’s sowed into many ministries locally & globally, she’s helped friends & strangers get back on their feet when she didn’t have it to give, she’s helped many people graduate & get their diplomas. She would never take and always give with her favorite quote being “LOVE WINS”.

At the request of Michele, cremation has taken place, and no services are being planned at the Gephart Funeral Home. Her family may hold a private memorial at a later date.
