Michele resided with her daughter and was extremely proud of her two grandchildren. She was a Dallas Cowboy's, Texas Ranger's and Dallas Maverick's fan and you could hear her cheering them on throughout the house on game days. Michele enjoyed going to the casino with her best friend Dianne, bird watching, and just spending time with her beloved family and cats. She was sober for 37 years and cherished her AA family.


"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

courage to change the things I can,

and wisdom to know the difference."


Survived by her daughter, Misti Cowley and Trey Cobbs; brother Shawn Kearney; grandson Avery Cowley and granddaughter Olivia Cowley.


Preceded by her parents; sister Karen Kearney; husband David Edgar.


The family requests in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the North Texas Food Bank in Michele's name. Thank you for all of the love, support and prayers during this tough time.
