Obituary of Michelle Clingaman
With great sadness, John and Mary Dennison announce the death of their daughter, Michelle Dennison Clingaman. She died on September 11th, 2022 at the age of 52. Visitation will take place at Forest Lawn Funeral Home in Beaumont, Texas on September 15th, 2022 at 1:00 pm with a celebration of life to follow at 2:00 pm. Interment will take place following the celebration at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Michelle was born on July 1st, 1970 in Beaumont, Texas. Michelle was kind, loving, empathetic, and always ready to go see a good movie. Michelle graduated from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School in 1988. She worked at Orange Pharmacy as a certified pharmacy technician for many years and eventually became a pharmacy technician instructor at Lamar State College-Orange. After several years of instructing, Michelle finally pursued her dream of becoming a funeral director. She attended the Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service in Houston, Texas and graduated in 2010. Michelle was born to assist others as they mourned the loss of a loved one. She was naturally and effortlessly empathetic--she knew exactly what to say and met others in their grief. Michelle adored her family. She was a loving daughter, proud mother, and a doting aunt. Michelle is survived by her parents, John and Mary Dennison; her siblings, Melanie Marshall and Patrick Dennison; her children, Corey McMullen, Trey McMullen, and Elle (Blake) Clingaman; her niece and nephews, Anna Marshall, Jackson Marshall, Jacob Fuller, Alexander Dennison, and Jonah Dennison; her former spouse, Jon Clingaman; her dogs, Monkey and Sugar; and many other relatives scattered throughout Southeast Texas and beyond. Michelle faced her struggles in life with tenacity, morbid humor, and faith--she laughed through the pain. While we mourn her death, we rejoice in the knowledge that we will see her again. Serving as pallbearers are: Dane Dennison, Grant Dennison, Jackson Marshall, Trent Marshall, Rodney McMullen, and Angie Davis.
