I graduated with Michelle from chs, I have fond memories of her and RIch, they were always together and so much in love! The last time I saw her was I think 1987 at christmas time, my mothers home was on the Christmas home tour that year and she was walking thru, she looked the same as she did in high school, cute and friendly as ever, I am sure she will be dearly missed by her family, my prayers are with you

Michelle will always be remembered for her happy smile and kind heart. We have many memories of the early days spent with our children and “sprinkler fitter friends”. Our heart goes out to the family. May she Rest In Peace

Michelle was my oldest daughter's nursery school teacher. She then was a classroom aide for both my girls at Strawbridge School. Michelle was a very kind person and allows had a big smile on her face. She will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family.

To the Dayton Family,
I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your loss of the absolutely lovely woman whom you called mom/grammom. I taught at Strawbridge School and got to know your mom there. Once I went to Van Sciver, I would see her from time to time and every year at Steven's Walk. Never once did I see her without her huge and beautiful smile! I just watched the tribute video and there it was, in every photo! I am sure she is smiling once again as she has been reunited with your dad/grandpop in heaven. As I prayed for her when she was sick, I pray that you find peace in the fact that your parents are together again. I am away for her services but please know I am with you in spirit.
