Michelle Klimek passed away unexpectedly at home on May 14, 2022 at the age of 57. She is the beloved daughter of the late Stanley and Marguerite (nee Kane) Klimek. Loving life partner of 35 years to John "Big John" Stuckey. Devoted mother to John Joseph (Breanna Ariel), Mark Ryan, and Rebecca Lynn. Loving Grandmom of Cassidee Ann Michelle and Wyatt Jacob. Dear sister of Kimberly Klimek-Green (John) and Mark Klimek (Elaine). Adoring aunt of (late)Michelle Elizabeth and Kimberly Ann, Cheyenne, Stanley Joseph, Anna Emily, Oliver Thomas, and great aunt of Eric Tyler, Ryan Patrick, Charlotte Rose, Tristan James, Harry Wallace, and Liam Joseph. Sadly missed by her aunts, uncles, and cousins. Reunited in heaven with her goddaughter Michelle, who was like a daughter to her.
Michelle was born in Fishtown at St. Mary's Hospital. She was the oldest of her three siblings. She was daddy's little girl and later on, mommy's favorite. Growing up, she always looked after her younger sister and brother.
The simplest things made Michelle happy. When she was young, she loved to ride her mini bike. She loved music, especially the guitar. Johanna farms iced tea and soft pretzels were her favorite. She also loved rainbows and the color blue especially.
Because Michelle was the oldest of all the kids in the family, her younger family members all looked up to her. She continued to look after them and protect them in her later years. She was an especially devoted Godmother and aunt to her niece.
Michelle later met and fell in love with her sweetheart and lifelong partner. At the age of 25, she finally became a mom and she was so happy. Michelle had three children and was the most fun mom, always getting down on the floor with them and running around the house with them. She was the biggest kid of all. She was also very happy to become a Grandmom and was very close to her grandchildren.
Michelle will always be remembered for being loyal and kind. She would give away anything she had, if you needed it!!She never cared about "things", they never meant much to her. She had a big, good, and unselfish heart. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her especially her children, grandchildren, and her life partner, her sweetheart.
"We love you dearly, sister of ours, and we will miss you so much! Until we meet again"
