|We can't show a picture of Michelle for religious reasons, but here's a picture of her buggy.|
Michelle Diane Bellamy passed away August 21, 2055 when she was kicked in the head by her horse, Chester. Chester was spooked by the sound of a passing car, as he lives on an Amish farm and is not used to demonic sounds such as the roar of passing automobiles. Michelle is survived by her husband James, children Jedediah, Jebediah, Anna, Samuel, Abraham, Lydia, Ezra, Hannah, Jeremiah, 23 grandchildren, 7 dairy cows, 12 chickens, and 3 barn cats.
James and Michelle grew up in the heathen English world, married in 2011, and joined the Amish church in 2013 when they got tired of modern technology and the rat race of the corporate world. On a whim, they turned in their iphones for battery-powered radios and their jeans for suspenders and head coverings. The Amish people were quite wary of the newcomers at first, as most new converts only last a few months, but they were quickly impressed by Michelle's knitting skills and her impeccable shoefly pies. It was as if Michelle had been meant to be Amish all along. Before long, James and Michelle were fluent in Pennsylvania Dutch and hosting church services in their old red barn behind their farmhouse.
Michelle may have been quick with the knitting needles, but she was the cause of a few scandals in her day. The Bishop caught wind of the secret TV she kept in the barn for her Sister Wives viewing parties she and the other Amish women had while their husbands were working the fields. She also horrified the church elders with her abnormally bright colored dresses, until she persuaded them that God created the bright colors as well as earth tones. At the counsel of the Bishop and in order to prevent shunning, Michelle publicly confessed to letting her hair out of her prayer cap while hanging the laundry outside. The next door neighbor's son was quite horrified when he stepped outside to see her brunette hair swaying in the wind, a secret that is reserved for husband and wife only. Michelle said she thought no one was home and promised to never do it again.
Because Michelle gave up her earthly possessions, she does not leave behind anything of value, but her lawyer will be meeting with the children where he will divide up and bequeath upon them all of her dozens of homemade quilts and her secret and scandalous collection of boy band CDs.
Please don't send flowers. If you must help the family, they are in the market for a new dairy cow.
