April 14, 1970August 10, 2019

Michelle S. Mori, 49 of Rockford IL passed away suddenly August 10, 2019. Born on April 14, 1970 to Gene and Suzanne Mori. Michelle was the type of person who never met a stranger. She was a jokester who was a light to everyone around her. Michelle was a natural caregiver, and committed to it as her life’s work. She is remembered for the way she would snap a photograph of her loved ones with the most “unflattering” expressions, her sense of humor, and the love she held for the people around her. She loved angels, and will be remembered as an angel herself to those who knew her. She will be forever missed. She is survived by her siblings; Mary (Fred) Corey, Joe (Kim) Ponder, and Jeff Ponder, her nieces and nephews; Becky and Jared Bussan, Abby Ponder and Andrew and Jacob Ponder, as well as her great niece Rayna Bussan. She is predeceased by her parents Gene and Suzanne. Interment rites have been accorded. In memory of Michelle, please consider a donation to Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter, Paws, or an animal charity of your choice to honor Michelle’s love for animals.
