CHEL'S STORY

Forever Chel

On June 17, 2017 Michelle was beaten to death and thrown into the family pool, her estranged husband has been charged with the murder. One of her beloved pets was also found dead in the pool, laying beside her.

We suspect she suffered in silence for many years, not wanting to worry her family.

She leaves behind her mom, dad, her two girls who were her entire world, and her grandson Liam, who was just shy of a year old, when she was tragically murdered, as well as her brothers, sister, aunt, nieces, nephews, cousin, and countless friends and acquaintances, who were all touched by her infectious spirit and contagious smile. 

Chel would not want her death to be in vain. So we, her family are using this platform to reach out and help at risk individuals.

Domestic violence is a very serious issue and is often not spoken about, but the statistics speak for themselves.

Michelle was an incredibly hardworking businesswoman, along with being a successful independent entrepreneur.

As she climbed the ladder of success, she touched everyone’s heart, she met along the way, leaving an indelible imprint of respect and love.
Her main goal in life was to provide for her family with her unwavering love and support. Her family was her joy.

Chel had an infectious laugh and a smile that would light up any room she entered. She had the uncanny ability to turn even the worst of times into a happy and joyous occasion.

She was a true animal lover and as she often
Stated,  “ she would save all of the dogs on the planet…” Her kindness and willingness to help others was just one of her many beautiful personality traits.

Everyday, women face the threat of harassment, assault, and violence.
