She was happily married to the love of her life Mike Doyle on April 29th 2017 and they resided at Havana Lake KS, they had a beautiful relationship full of great adventures together with lots of laughter and they were examples of what caring for each other looks like, Mike has been an absolute blessing to this family in the love and care he gave to Michelle.
Michelle and Mike enjoyed boat rides in the evening, watching beautiful Kansas sunsets, and family gatherings. She particularly enjoyed her birthday month, every single day of it. Her sons DJ, Joey, and Travis had the opportunity of becoming her personal chefs during the last few months which she very much enjoyed as did all the family who came to visit.

Michelle was a beloved wife and mother and joy to all who knew her, always a bright light to the world. Her life was a living example of child-like faith, of which Jesus spoke,
“Learn this well: Unless you dramatically change your way of thinking and become teachable, and learn about heaven’s kingdom realm with the wide-eyed wonder of a child, you will never be able to enter in. Whoever continually humbles himself to become like this gentle child is the greatest one in heaven’s kingdom realm. And if you tenderly care for this little one on my behalf, you are tenderly caring for me (Matt. 18:3-5 TPT).
She took time to notice the beauty in everything and everyone. Always putting the needs of others before her own, the most selfless person you would ever meet, she had a gift to brighten up anyone’s day.
She is dearly missed by all that were blessed to know her.
