Mary "Michelle" Spade: 1957-2012
April 24, 2012
Mary Michelle Spade left us on April 17, 2012 to begin her next journey. Michelle was a long-time resident of Kremmling, Colo., and left her mark on many as friends.
Michelle was born on Jan. 12, 1957, in Rochester, N.Y. to Robert and Joanne Waples and moved to Woodland Park, Colo., in 1972. There, she met her future husband Scott Spade. They were married in 1976 and raised two wonderful daughters Rachel and Kelly. During these years, Michelle spent 15 years as a volunteer firefighter, retired, and then volunteered as a Kremmling Fire Protection District Board member.
Michelle was an artist and was not afraid to attempt and conquer many crafts, including original stitchery, woodcarving, painting, and sewing.
The family has no plans for a service.
Michelle is survived by her husband Scott Spade of Kremmling, Colo., daughter Rachel Wood, her husband Aaron and grandchildren Cameron, Kylie, and Connor of Kremmling; her daughter Kelly Johnson, her husband Michael and grandson Dylan of Goose Creek, S.C.; brother Richard Waples and his family of Prospect, Ky., and brother Robert Waples of Colorado Springs, Colo.
Michelle was never one to take life too seriously and above all, laughed at herself first and shared those laughs with others.
You may leave a condolence for the family, share a story about Michelle or add a photo by going to http://www.grandcountymortuary.com and enter Michelle’s “Book of Memories.”
In lieu of flowers, Michelle would have appreciated donations to “West Grand Wishes,” P.O. Box 713, Kremmling, Colo., 80459.
