Michelle A. Neumeister

On Sunday, May 12, 2024, Michelle A. Neumeister began her eternal rest in peace at her home in Fredonia, NY, surrounded by her children and family. Formally from Derby, NY, Michelle was the beloved wife of the late Randy Neumeister, dear mother of son Josh Neumeister, late daughter Ashley Neumeister, and daughter Sarah Neumeister. Michelle was the daughter of the late Martin “Joe” Lovern and Mary Ann (Manley) Lovern, daughter-in-law to the late Robert and Lois (Lyman) Neumeister, and sister to the late Kristian (Stacey) Lovern, Valarie (Michael) Rechin, and Madonna (Marty Brannigan) Lovern, aunt to nieces and nephews Lindsey Lovern, Josh (Leah) Bush, Megan (Joe Ver) Rechin, and Emily Rechin.

Michelle was a friend to all, especially animals. Throughout her life, she rescued and cared for numerous pets. She also loved supporting people during her career as a Direct Support Aid for the Western New York Developmental Disabilities Services Office. She went above and beyond at the houses where she worked, treating people like they were her own family and ensuring they always felt special.

If you were to look for Michelle in her favorite places, you could find her at a beach walking in the sand, in her garden with the biggest green thumb, watching for birds in her backyard, or in front of a craft table, easel, or paintbrush–creating beautiful artwork for everyone to enjoy.

The family is requesting privacy and peace as they navigate the loss of beloved Michelle, and a private family celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations may be made to the Westfield Stray Cat Rescue or the Lakeshore Humane Society in memory of Michelle.
