Michelle Agnes Kehr

August 16, 1965August 30, 2020

Michelle A. Kehr, 55 of Somerset, NJ passed away suddenly on August 30, 2020 at her home. Michelle was the daughter of the late Daniel & Agnes Kehr, sister-in-law of the late Capt. Thomas P. Earley & sister-in-law of the late Roseanne Godwin Kehr. She is survived by her loving sisters, Lynda Earley and Gary Reedell of Ewing, NJ, her sister Debe Kehr of Columbia, SC & a brother Daniel Kehr, Jr of Pine Beach, NJ. Michelle was a beloved Aunt of Danielle Oswald and her husband David, Patrick Earley & his wife Angela, Betsy and her husband Craig Soltis, BJ Lindenberger, Jade Kehr and Jamie Kehr, Katie Reedell, Kevin & Dan Reedell and the adored great-aunt of Dean, Matthew & Tommy. Michelle was a kind, beautiful, warm-hearted person who would go above and beyond for anyone and everyone she knew. Even while she struggled with her own addiction she still would light up a room with her presence and sense of humor. She loved her family very deeply and took care of many children throughout her life. Even though she had no children of her own, she helped to mold many young lives in a very positive way. Michelle believed in second, third, even fourth chances for others. Very recently, Michelle finally was beginning to have signs of hope for her own future and making plans for the first time in a long time and we were so very happy to see that. Our family and the world lost the gift of her presence way too soon. Addiction does not discriminate and it will grab hold and destroy anyone in its path. Addiction hides in the faces of everyday people all around us. As her oldest niece, I will remember my “Abba” with great fondness and be grateful my kids had the chance to have the love of “Sugar” for the formative years of their lives. To honor Michelle, we ask that think twice before you judge an addict. For we don’t know how someone is struggling. Michelle, we miss you and love you very much!

A calling from heaven
An Angel gets their wings
In this life we are not perfect
Yet we hear the Angels sing

Hearts filled with love
Shower a warm rain
Drowned within its embrace
Relieved of all the pain

Giving it all to our Father
Never again to know hate
Everlasting love in his arms
Passing through the Pearly gates

The beauty of the sunrises
Reunited with those we love
Hold us close who are waiting
There will come a day we rise above

Rest in peace Michellle you are loved by many.

I am in shock, denial, disbelief and mostly heartbroken. I feel I should be angry at the world that we’ve been kept apart for ages due to this pandemic, robbing us of precious time. Annoyed that your voice went away so we couldn’t talk as often on the phone. Sad that I’ll no longer see your beautiful smile or feel your hugs. Maybe i should be happy that you are at peace and with your parents and fur babies of the past. .... Hmm.... to be perfectly honest I am ecstatic that you’d been in my life and my kiddos lives and shared your love and wisdom. That we’ve experienced life as children and adults, never skipping a beat when an absence was upon us. So, now I pray that when I join you up there our bond will still be strong and everlasting. I love you and will miss you terribly until then. Rest In Peace my sweet. ❌⭕️

Mish, so many memories came flashing through my mind. The young years , the best years. Just bring goofy laughing over anything. Giggling over boys , staying up late and swimming in the dark. I think back and they were some of the best days. Desperately trying to teach me how to use makeup something I have yet learned to perfect. Always you had a heart of gold and were there for me when I felt so very lost. I never forgot that. School trips where your Dad taught and eating all my Aunts cookues. I could go on forever. Sleep with Angel's you have now earned your wings. Love you always Lisa

Michelle was not my blood but she was and always will be my Aunt Shelly. She was loving and kind hearted. She always saw the good in people and was the type of person who would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She was a great listener and I remember all of the talks we had and the laughs, and tears we shared together. My heart is heavy saying goodbye to such a beautiful, genuine soul so soon, but I know she is at peace and is up in heaven watching over all of those that she loved. Rest In Peace Shelly I will miss you dearly and will never forget you. Say hi to nan and pop for me. Love you aways❤️

I grew up in the house next door to the Kehr family. Michelle’s oldest sister, Lynda and I have been friends since high school. I don’t remember Michelle much from her younger years, but more from when I went home to visit my mom and through her relationship with her sister, Lynda. Michele had many ups and downs throughout her life, but through it all she never lost her kindness and humanity for others.
I do hope you are being rewarded for all the love you shared on earth. Michelle, you will be missed. 🥰.
