Michele L. Prine, age 50, beloved wife, daughter, sister and mother, passed away July 12, 2017 at the Cleveland Clinic after an unexpected brain aneurism.

Chuck and Michele were practically inseparable. They enjoyed riding ATVs with friends, cooking and camping together, walking her dog Bella, listening to music and dancing, having bon fires and spending time with family, but most of all she loved simply living life to the fullest. Her constant positivity, unending patience and unconditional love made her a beacon of light and hope to everyone she met.

Lenart, she is survived by her husband, son and daughter-in-law, Rachel Kennedy, brother, Michael Lenart, father and step-mother, Linda Lenart, mother and step-father, Jim Dennis.
