She took care of her whole family and was considered their Rock and "Big Cheese". Michele was the glue of all her social groups and put everyone else's needs before her own. She started and led the Girl Scout Group in her area so her daughter would have a group, and was involved in the P.R.S.V.A. in the Chili School district.

She is survived by her husband, Dan Long, her daughter, Kyla Ann Long, father and step-mother, Timothy and Ann Cooper, sisters, Jodi and her husband, Brandon Carr, Lindsey Bussell, Nicole Sixberry, Christine Shampine, and her brother, Chuck Shampine. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Michele is predeceased by her mother, Ann LaParr.
