She is preceded in death by her parents William and Teresa Dillard. Michelle is survived by her husband of 44 years Joe, daughter Terry Cordaro, son Jay Cordaro and daughter in-law Lana, grandson Joel, and sister Diane Dillard.

Michele was an active parishioner of All Saints Catholic Church. She possessed an amusing dry wit. She was a certified Master Gardener as well as an active member of several local Bridge clubs. She was a voracious reader. She played and listened to music, enjoyed travel, cooking, and solving cryptograms. She was gifted at sewing and also at decorating the home in an elegant and classic style. She enjoyed spending quality time with her family, especially over a cup of coffee.

Pallbearers are Dominic Cordaro, John Fina, Larry Florer, William Frew, Chancy Miller, and Nic Tamburrino.

We would like to thank Dr. Samer Bibawi and the entire staff at the Methodist Richardson Cancer Center for the excellent care and treatment Michele received the past 5 ¾ years.
