Michelle was a very kind and sweet. She took great care of me after my knee surgeries. We talked a lot about her family and how much she loved her girls and husband. She will be greatly missed

Michelle was always a pleasure to be around, on and off the court. She was always positive and smiling and never said a bad word about others. She was an inspiration to those who played with her or against her. I'm proud to consider her a friend. She will be deeply missed. Her beloved family and friends will be in my prayers.

Coming from a small town in North Dakota you know everyone. Michelle was a year older than me and from the postings she never changed. She was a smart, kind, and determined person. When Michelle was on the basketball court her competitive spirit came out, she was there to win! To Michelle's family, sending prayers...may God wrap his arms around you in the days ahead.

Heard the tragic news of Michele’s passing during Mass tonight. I was privileged to have cared for her over the last 18 years, and to have delivered her precious Jessie and Kendall. My thoughts and prayers go out to this family in this time of devastating loss.

Michelle was an intelligent, diplomatic and kind person. I worked for her when she ran the clinic for HealthSouth in Columbus. She was an excellent clinician who helped so many people live their lives better as they recovered and adapted to physical challenges. I am so sorry for the loss and sadness the family and friends must be going through at this time. She will be missed, but her work will continue to ripple through countless lives. I am sending my thoughts and prayers your way. 🙏🏻💕
