Michelle graduated from Belleville East High School in 1987 and went on to graduate from Barnes Jewish School of Nursing in 1995.

Michelle was a faithful member of the Fairview Heights Church of Christ where she met and married Ryan Ashby in 2005. They had two beautiful children that she loved with all her heart - Mackenna and Reese. Michelle enjoyed taking on any project that came her way but especially loved gardening and raising chickens. Michelle lived her life to glorify God in all that she did and strived to love and serve others as Jesus did.
