Michelle Dianne Jesperson Stewart
1961 ~ 2016

On June 17, 2016 our beloved friend, mother and sister, Michelle Jespersen Stewart, passed away and left this earthly life. Fondly known as Shell, Mush, Mimi, or Sis, she had a gift for being the dependable one in the family; the ?glue? that held things together and the one you could count on for anything when you needed it most.

Michelle was born in La Mesa, California on June 11, 1961, to Arlyn and Joy Jesperson. She has four sisters and two brothers. She was a graduate of Granite Hills High School in El Cajon and later attended Brigham Young University. Michelle had a thirst for knowledge and was passionate about the field of medicine and the human body. She worked as an EMT for Pleasant Grove ambulance for many years and spent her later years as an emergency room technician for American Fork Hospital.

Michelle is survived by her loving husband, Joseph B. Stewart; her children, Rochelle (Eric) Lopez, Joseph Stewart Jr. (Kate), and Brett Stewart; and grandchildren, Evette and Micah Lopez. Michelle loved being a grandma and doted on her grandchildren, who affectionately called her ?Mimi.? There was nothing more meaningful and important to her than spending time with her family.

Michelle was fun-loving and energetic; her laugh, infectious. She loved the outdoors, especially riding her road bike in the mountains of American Fork Canyon or spending time at the beach. Although she and Joe were partial to Park City, their favorite place to travel together would be the shores of Torrey Pines Reserve and Del Mar, California. For the last 22 years the Stewart family resided in Lindon, Utah, but Michelle was a California girl at heart?her love of the sun and tranquility of the ocean never waned.

Her heart was immense and generous. To those with a sorrowful soul, she lifted them up and worried over them until she had done everything in her power to help. To those with circumstances less than perfect, she did not judge. She was a healer of sorts? always seeing a positive side to the situation at hand. Words can?t express how much we are going to miss her.

Funeral services will be held at 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at the Lindon 21st LDS Ward Chapel, 1050 East 100 North, Lindon, Utah. Family and friends may call from 9:30 to 10:15 am at the church prior to services.

Flowers are welcome, however in lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Prevent Blindness Foundation at www.preventblindness.org
