Late Thursday morning, October 24, 2019, Michelle Louise Suddarth of O’Fallon, MO, beloved daughter and loving mother passed away at the age of 34. If you were fortunate enough to know Michelle, you’ll remember her ability to make life a little better. You would not be able to forget the mischievous twinkle in her eye right before she pulled something over on someone. You would know her sense of humor was only surpassed by her compassion for others. You may not know of her covert acts of kindness, such as having a driveway repaved for a family member that was out of town, sticking around for hours on end to finish installing insulation in the attic of a disadvantaged family, or befriending an elderly shut-in and assisting them with routine chores.
Born November 24, 1984 in Louisiana, MO, Michelle was the daughter of Daniel Ray and Cindy Ann Howard Suddarth. In her younger years, Michelle volunteered at Asbury Bible Camp and participated in worship services showcasing her musical talents playing guitar and drums. She was as talented with a paintbrush as she was with a spatula, painting wall murals for her children and creating masterpieces of the edible variety.
Her spirit is carried on by her significant other, Chris Schwartz of O’Fallon; their daughters: Caitlin Elizabeth and Hannah Louise Schwartz; and her parents, Dan and Cindy Suddarth of Winfield. She will be forever remembered by her one brother, Tim Suddarth and his wife, Rachael, of Davenport, IA; two sisters: Connie Moore and her husband, Tim, of Peoria, AZ and Kristen Harper and her husband, Rich, of Winfield, MO; several nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
Visitation was held from 12:00 noon until the time of Funeral Services at 2:00 p.m. Monday, October 28, 2019 at Asbury United Methodist Church near Foley. Rev. Chris Sanchez of Foristell, MO officiated with burial at Asbury Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers were Tim Suddarth, Michael Schwartz, Zachary Schwartz, Rich Harper, Jim Ansley, and Caleb Linton. Memorials may be made to Annie’s Hope in care of Carter-Ricks Funeral Home, 3838 East Highway 47, P.O. Box 253, Winfield, MO 63389. Online condolences may be made at www.carterricksfuneralhome.com.
