Michelle Katherine Pettis (aka: Mickey) was born on October 28, 1973 in Fairfax VA. Michelle was employed by Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia as a special needs bus driver and found great joy and purpose in that position/calling.

A caring woman, left us too early. Prayers and best wishes for peace in the hearts of all that loved her. Eternally grateful for my friend that listened & understood struggles not all face or see. I wish I could have told her of my victory in family court she encouraged me soo much over.

Her footprint lives in my heart. Truely a kind woman in our fallen world full of cold people.

Dear Yvonne & Bob ~ Michelle taught us a lot. She fought hard and prayed for healthier days. We understand the fight, the courage and the lasting hope that families need when our loved ones are impacted by illnesses that we cannot control. May God continue to be your primary source of comfort in the days and months ahead. I love you both & I’m here whenever and however you need me for the duration—Cindy Wheeler
