She is survived by her husband, David McKay; her daughter, Heather McKay; as well as her family.

A Memorial Service will be held at Roswell Funeral Home in Roswell, GA, on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 1 PM to celebrate Michelle's life and honor her contributions to everyone she knew and loved. A service in Colorado will follow in the springtime.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the charities she held so dear: GoodMews in Atlanta, Georgia, Laela's Hope Cat Rescue in Beckley, West Virginia, or a local pet rescue in memory of Michelle.
