Please help preserve Michelle's memory with a small donation to help fulfill Michelle's dream of Amanda & Karina going to college.

Smoke filled the air from a fire 400 miles away, but nobody could have been happier than Michelle Beer was that day. She was feeling great and thrilled to be having her second child in two more weeks. At just 38 years old, she was looking forward to what should have been the best years of her life.

In the blink of an eye, everything changed.

That evening, Michelle suffered from an aneurysm that tragically took her life far too early. With her passing came the arrival of an amazing, beautiful, precious baby who miraculously survived and was named Karina Michelle. While Michelle could not be saved, her generosity and willingness to be a donor resulted in seven others having the opportunity to live. That is amazing. She is a hero. She always was and she always will be.

Michelle is still with us, in our hearts and looking down from Heaven.

Michelle devoted her life to her family, faith & friends. She was incredibly excited about having this baby and looked forward to her arrival more than anything. The Beer family is understandably devastated and confused by this unimaginable loss.

Michelle will be deeply missed by her loving husband Pete, 6 1/2 year old daughter Amanda, Karina, family and friends. In life, Michelle brought joy to all those she met. Her contagious laugh and love for life will be greatly missed.

Karina will never get to meet her mother and Amanda can only hold on to the precious memories that she can preserve. There is nothing we can do to bring back Michelle, but we can all give just a little bit towards helping prepare Amanda & Karina for college.

One thing is for sure, Michelle will be smiling down from heaven when she sees that her family, friends and community helped enable them to get there.

Thanks for helping Michelle's memory live on in the form of her children's college education. We love you Michelle.
