She was the most amazing infant teacher. I was blessed to have her as a mentor. She had an inner light that showed through to all when she cared for the youngest among us. She will be missed but the lessons she gave will live forever.

My heart is aching for you, even knowing that Michele is definitely in Heaven watching over us. Michele will always the best infant teacher that I have ever had the honor to have worked with. Her gentle spirit had a way of giving each child and parent just what they needed. She holds a spot in my heart that is very dear and even though I didn't see her often since she retired, I always looked forward to her visits. Michele left a legacy that I will be honored to keep trying to fulfill. Jill, Scott and Clint, know how proud of you all she was; she beamed when talking about you and your families. George, Michele was your biggest fan - she always had a story to share about her Georgie. Kevin would try to get to the center before here every snow fall and he usually failed, she was always a step ahead of us. Kevin and I are sending our love to you all.

I knew Michelle as a coworker, and her love for all children, especially the wee babies, was so obvious. She was a kind, fun loving person who always gave away her smile to everyone she came into contact with. Peace and prayers to you all.

Michelle took care of my three kiddos. I always knew she had them well cared for. Amazing to me she could care for several infants at the same time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
