Michelle Marion Adams (nee Brandes) - October 23, 1972 to May 29, 2021 - passed away after a long, valiant battle with colon cancer. She is survived by her loving husband, Robert Adams and her sons, Tyler (Magena, his wife) and Jack Adams. She was the daughter of Emil Brandes Sr. (deceased) and Marion Parkinson and her wife, Peg Szczurek. Her parents-in-law are Bruce and Jane Adams. Michelle was a beloved sister to Emil (Skip) and Stacey Brandes, Philip and Christine (nee Adams) Brandes, Jesse White, Stephanie White and Peter Luttrell. Also: sister-in-law to Joseph and Danielle Adams, Kate and Brian Rightley, Mary and Rich Culver. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews. Michelle had an army of friends who will miss her terribly.

Michelle was loving, kind and generous of spirit. Everyone who knew or met her was embraced by her positive energy. She gave magical hugs. Her laughter captured anyone in her presence and filled them with joy. Michelle could break out in song at any moment. She knew the lyrics to so many songs including Girl Scout songs that she learned during her many years as a scout and working at Girl Scout camps. Michelle believed that being a Girl Scout taught her about leadership and friendship. Her many friends can attest to how loyal and generous a friend she could be.

Michelle was devoted to her boys and she championed the pursuit of their interests: music for Tyler and sports for Jack. She loved spending time with her family and friends and her pets. She loved butterflies, owls, penguins, Harry Potter, and all things Disney especially Tinkerbell and Goofy. Michelle loved to cook and bake and recently served as a Pampered Chef representative.

Michelle will be missed by all who knew her.
