Michelle Bardin

Michelle Bardin, 33, passed away on February 25, 2024. She was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on February 20, 1991. Michelle is survived by her husband, Leo Bardin; her children, Breanna Goree, Dixie Goree, Sarabeth Baughman, Isabella Baughman, Elijah Bardin, Hunter Bardin; her parents; Mary and Russell Holt; her siblings; Aodhan Holt Lamont, Brian Dietrich, Trevor Shelton, Colton Caldwell, Michael Wilson, and Sonia Flanigan, her grandfather, Doug Allenbaugh and grandmother Mary Miller;  her mother-in-law, Becky Gee Bardin, brother and sister- in- law; Zachary Bardin and Kasie Bardin; Sarabeth and Isabella's father Scott Baughman; and other extended family and friends. Michelle was preceded in death by her grandmother, Thelma Allenbaugh, and Breanna and Dixie's father Jamie Goree.

Her love for her family knew no bounds. Together with her husband and kids, she found joy in working on trucks, especially her cherished Tahoe. Music was her passion: she often sang with her girls and played the piano. The open road called to her, leading to adventures down dirt roads and she loved nature. Hunting, bonfires, playful scuffles, and the thrill of mudding were woven into the fabric of her being. She also had a fondness for Monster energy drinks. Michelle's eyes held a particular sparkle in the presence of crystals; their light dancing through them brought a radiance that mirrored her own inner glow.

In the tapestry of memories left behind, Michelle's beaming smile shines brightly a testament to a life lived with warmth and joy. As we reflect on her journey and growth, may we find solace in the beauty she brought into our lives and the love she generously shared. Michelle's spirit now roams free, forever guiding us with that everlasting smile etched in our hearts.
