Michelle was born in Atlanta, Georgia on December 4, 1965. She spent her childhood years living in Atlanta, New Jersey, and southern California. Michelle graduated as salutatorian from Dunwoody High School and went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. She loved her Georgia Bulldogs with great pride and enthusiasm, and we are quite sure that she will be cheering them on from the best seat of them all and screaming “Go Dawgs!” all season long.
In 1991, Michelle met Neil Flint at Dunwoody Baptist Church. After dating for four months, Neil proposed, and they were married on August 15, 1992. Michelle and Neil’s daughter, Lauren, was born in 1995, and they were both thrilled to be parents. Throughout the years, Michelle planned countless trips to her family’s favorite vacation destination, Walt Disney World. Michelle’s favorite character was Winnie the Pooh, and she loved spending time with family and friends in the most magical place on earth. Last year, Michelle celebrated her 20th work anniversary at Fiserv, where she had a deep impact on so many colleagues and friends. She was a mentor, a leader, and always was happy to share her strengths with others. She loved her work, and more importantly, she loved her Fiserv family. While Michelle had many interests and talents, the greatest of all was her family. Michelle was an incredible wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. Laughter and joy were never in short supply around Michelle, and she loved all of us in such a huge way. She taught us all to love each other fiercely and never take things too seriously.
In 2018, Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite how scared the rest of us were, she was determined to fight and win this battle. She was an absolute warrior for two years and she fought an amazing fight. Through her battle with cancer, God shaped us all into better people with more love and grace to give to the world. Even in the toughest of trials, Michelle leaned on her faith in the Lord to sustain her. She held onto His promises and knew that He would heal her and make her perfect and complete in Him. While we are devastated that she is no longer with us to share her joy, we rejoice that she is in her eternal home with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
