Michelle was the best daughter, sister and friend anyone could ask for. Her smile was infectious and her laughter divine. A true kindred spirit who loved nature and birds.

Michelle Suzanne Gherardi was born on February 1, 1988 in Long Beach, California to Michael and Karen Gherardi. She only lived in Long Beach till she was one years old, when the family moved up to Fairfield, California. She spent her childhood in Fairfield. Michelle loved animals and nature. She performed in musicals, danced and played the piano amazingly. She was an extremely smart child who excelled in everything she put her mind to. She attended Buckingham Charter School. Michelle had a fun personality and a strong work ethic. She worked at Sprint and Starbucks for many years. There wasn't a customer that disliked her. Many of them were heartbroken when they heard the news. Michelle passed away from complications of pneumoia. Her passing has left a huge hole in many hearts. So many loved her beautiful, sparkly smile. Whether it was her quirky spirit, huge compassionate heart, addictive laughter, her insane knowledge of birds or just the tender love she radiated ...she will be terribly missed. She is survived by her mother Karen, father Michael, brother William and sisters Jennifer and Sarah. Our hearts will be forever broken.
