In her spare time, Michele enjoyed spending time with family, completing word search puzzles, going to the movies, baking, cooking, and collecting recipes. She proudly won a blue ribbon two years in a row for the local apple bake-off.
She was known for her kindness, humor, Irish temperament, and matter-of-fact outlook on life. Some of her favorite quotes being: “Let’s not beat around the bush,” “You can’t take the country out of the bumpkin,” and “Life may not be the party we asked for, but while we are here, we should dance!”
