Michelle was born in Desert Knolls, CA on October 8th, 1974. She passed away following a courageous battle with Ovarian Cancer at the age of 48 years young on March 16th, 2023 at home in Nampa, ID.
Michelle had such a zest for life. She was crazy about photography and wanted to capture all her special moments with a picture. She enjoyed going to the opal mines, collecting rocks (always looking for the glimmer of an opal hidden within) with her closest of friends. She enjoyed nature, one of her all time favorites was sitting on a mountaintop and watching the sun rise up in all its splendor. She had so many beautiful landscape pictures. She was such a social butterfly and had many friends. She enjoyed spending time with each of them as they all held a special place in her heart. She was very supportive of her NA Group that she had been a member of for many years.
She is survived by her daughters Destyne Martinez, Brooklyn Martinez, Jovanique Renteria, her granddaughters Evolen Rios and Amara Chavez, brother Steve Martinez and Tom Turner along with her mother Sherry Holman. (She is preceded in death by her father Michael Martinez.)
