    Love does not die with the body. Remembrance does not die with the body. Her Love continues within all of us. I will always hold her love and be uplifted by her strength, courage and her acts of kindness and love.

    Michelle was such a kind soul. She was smart, funny and always tried to have a positive outlook on life. I remember she was the very first person I interviewed and hired at Fitzgerald Auto Mall, she became such an asset to our dealership but also a wonderful friend. We shared so many laughs and fun times and working with her was a pleasure. She will be missed.

    Chris, Val, Sarah, Chris, Nick, Danny, and Jacob, and families,
    Words can’t express how much my heart is aching and broken for you all. Michelle was so special to all of us in so many ways. She was the sister that I never had that let me have an extended family within you all. I cannot thank God enough for bringing her into my life and making me a better person. Michelle’s love of life and her laughter was contagious in so many ways, she brought joy to everyone around her. I know she’s with us all, watching over us, laughing at the silly things that happen. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought of you all and Michelle.
    My heart, thoughts, and prayers, are with you all.
    To you my sweet beautiful Michelle,
    Thank you!! thank you for 20+ years of friendship, thank you for all the laughs, the late night talks, and oh so many memories that I will hold so close to my heart. Goodness we miss you so so much, but I know it’s you when I see that ladybug, I know it’s you when I feel that warm breeze, I know it’s you when I suddenly feel a sense of calm and peace. It you saying “Maui, everything‘s going to be OK!”
    I love you my sweet Best friend! I know I’ll see you again!

Michelle Ryan White, 42, passed away on March 17, 2021. She was born on May 25,1978 to Christopher White and Valerie White in Lansing, Michigan. She had many interests that mostly revolved around family, friends and fun. She enjoyed gaming, reading books, playing silly card games and blowing up fireworks. She had a very eclectic taste in music, often listening to every genre imaginable on the same playlist. Michelle was a supreme mischief maker from the moment she was born. Much like her favorite villain the Joker, she thoroughly relished the laughter and chaos that would ensue after one of her creative pranks. She loved laughter in general. Most of all, Michelle was one of those rare people that wanted to make everyone around her happy. She did this with no selfish agendas, she just wanted to help others in any way she could. Whether it was helping someone secure something they needed, a kind gesture to brighten someone’s day, giving some good advice, or listening when someone needed to be heard. She would make herself look ridiculous just to cheer someone up, even near the end. She fought longer and harder than anyone thought possible, and she did this because she loved life and those around her. At her heart Michelle treasured family most of all. She had two families. Work was her other family. Nothing came before work, except family (most of the time). She was a Warranty Administrator, who was passionate about her profession. She only worked for two companies since she was 16, Fitzgerald Auto Mall and Romain Cross Pointe. No employer ever wanted to let her go. She cherished her coworkers and worked up to the end at Romain’s. She was the center of a very big family that stretches across the country. She was the Boss.
Michelle was preceded in death by her grandparents Nancy and Patrick Daniels; and her dear friends Ryan, Ron, Patrick and her very special little man Elijah.
Michelle is survived by her parents Christopher White and Valerie White; her fur babies Boo Bear and Maximus; her siblings Christopher (Zaynah Madi) White, Sarahmarie White, Nicholas (Rebekkah) White, Daniel (Cassaundra) White, Jacob (Chelsea Harper) White, Carl (Averie) Sievers; her grandparents, Patricia O’Shea White, Thomas (Kate Boland) White; nieces and nephews Samyrah, Jaxon, Amelia, Elijah, Melanie, Brycen, Olive, Lee, and Lily; uncles Thomas White and Family, Sean White, Eamon Seidel and family, Dan Seidel and family; her close friends, The Perkins family, Edwards family, Mary Fitzgerald Wiltfang and Michelle’s other families at Romain Cross Pointe and Fitzgerald Auto Mall.
Visitation will be from 6pm until the time of service at 7pm on May 25, 2021 at Sunset Funeral
