Michele Aline Byerly, age 54, passed away at her home in LaBarge, WY. on January 17, 2016. She was born to Wally and Doris DeArment on January 11, 1962 in Pennsylvania. Michele was a twin and had two sisters and five brothers. She was born with a beautiful light inside her that began to shine as she followed her heart through her life. Her compassion and love for animals of all shapes and sizes was obvious from early on. Michele's light continued to grow as she developed friendships. Everyone knew that when she made a friend it was for life.
The day Michele married David Joseph Byerly, her light radiated as it was one of the best days of her life. Their love for each other in undeniable. Michele and Dave expanded their family when Michele gave birth to David Jr.; Becky and Brad Byerly. Dave and Michele were married on April 26, 1980 and celebrated thirty six beautiful years together. Through the good times and the difficult times, Dave and Michele's love, trust and devotion for their family never wavered.
Michele and Dave chose to raise their family out West where Michele became a true Wyoming woman. She loved spending her time outside and every season brought a new adventure. She loved fishing, camping, hunting, 4-wheeling, and any other outdoor activity that she tried. Michele poured her heart and soul into everything she did from spending time with her family to working for and being a part of the town that she loved.
Finally, Michele's light was shining the brightest the day she became a grandmother. The joy and pride that she had for her family was never more evident than when she helped welcome Libert SSevenski, Bentley Byerly, and Lilly Byerly into this world. Michele lived each day with an open heart and a smile on her face. She never hesitated to be truthful, even if it hurt, and her words of wisdom will be missed.
Mom was our shining star that will never loose her luster.
