Michelle Lenea Bennett, age 45, passed away Tuesday, August 26, 2014 in Orlando, Florida due to a lengthy illness. She is survived by her sons, Gardner Daniels Jr. and Elijah Bennett; her brothers, Robert Bennett Jr. And David Bennett; and parents, Robert and Essie Bennett.





Michelle spent the majority of her life in California where she recieved her diploma (Pittsburg High School 1986), acquired her Bachelor's of Science degree (University of Phoenix 2010), and championed her roles as daughter, wife, mother, sister, accountant, friend, teacher, confidant, and role model.





After beating breast cancer, Michelle moved to Winter Springs, Florida with her son, Elijah, where she became the general studies admissions manager and international student advisor at Adventist University of Health Sciences. Despite Winter Springs being a fairly new place of residence to her, it didn't take long for Michelle to make significant impact in the lives of many Floridians.





In 2013, Michelle discovered that her once defeated cancer was metastatic as it had resurfaced in her lung. Though she succumbed to her battle a year later, Michelle refused to submit to her illness as she fought vigorously every step of the way.





Michelle will be remembered as a mighty woman of God who inspired, influenced, guided, supported, taught, directed, and edified an otherwise uncountable sum. Her legacy shall live on not only through her family, but through every individual blessed to be associated with her in one way or another.





Her memory shall be cherished, her warmth missed, and her beauty unforgotten.



Visitation will be held Friday, August 29, 2014 from 6-8 PM at Baldwin Fairchild Funeral Home, Oviedo Chapel. A Celebration of Life will be held 1 PM Saturday, August 30, 2014 at the funeral home. Interment will follow at All Faiths Memorial Park in Casselberry, Florida. Arrangements entrusted to Baldwin Fairchild Funeral Home, Oviedo Chapel. 501 E. Mitchell Hammock Rd., Oviedo, Florida 32765 407-366-8999. www.baldwinfairchildoviedo.com
