On May 10, 1957, Michele was born to Arthur and Janet Farley in Flint, Michigan. She graduated from high school and pursued her education and later obtained her Bachelor’s in accounting. Upon graduating from college, Michele began to work as an accountant and continued for many years. She dedicated herself to helping the Red Cross, doing dog foster care, and Pet Rescue (from Forgotten to Forever). Michele painted Paws for Veterans. Her favorite hockey team was the Detroit Red Wings. Michele’s most memorable moments were when she would take her dogs to the dog park and the times she spent with her family. She loved listening to Rock and Roll music.
