An excerpt of an email, dated December 21, 2020, from Michelle’s sister, Denise, provides the following update:


To answer a few of your questions listed in Kelly's email, below please find some information that will hopefully assist you with your research to convey to other classmates.

Michelle and family moved back to Ky from Virginia due to our father's job transfer. We first moved to Louisville, Ky. from 1974 to 1975 where Michelle attended Westport High School. We then moved back to Northern Kentucky where Michelle was born and raised. Michelle graduated from a private school, Beechwood High School. After high school graduation, Michelle went on to attend Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky. While attending college Michelle worked a part time job.

Michelle was never married and she did not have any children.

Michelle's death was a very unfortunate accident at the young age of 23. As you can imagine it left her family, friends and co-workers very devastated. Such a shame such a talented, smart and very outgoing individual left us all so young. Michelle loved to draw, hang out with friends and drink beer!

Michelle left behind her mother that is now deceased, Audrey M. Weber, father that is now deceased, William D. Weber, surviving, sister Denise Weber Graves, brother in law, Gary S. Graves, brother William Wesley Weber.
