Michele Crockett Bissias passed away peacefully on June 3, 2009.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Dorothy Crockett. She is survived by Peter, her loving and devoted husband, who she so fondly referred to as "Sweet Pea," and her precious and cherished daughter, Taia, who will always be her "Sweet Love."
She leaves behind her sister Paula Lein, brother-in-law Chuck Lein, her nephew and niece who so adored her, Grant Lein and Amanda Lein, in-laws Nicholas and Frances Bissias and sisters-in-law Diane Bissias and Elaine Bissias. She also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, godchildren and friends she so loved.
In life, as in her passing, she showed elegance, grace and beauty. Her exquisite manner, impeccable sense of style was evident in all she touched. Her unmistakable laugh, and smile which lit up her eyes, gave warmth and comfort to those fortunate enough to have known her. May the Lord Bless and Keep You, and May His Light Perpetually Shine Upon You.
