Obituary for Michelle Fritz
MICHELLE FRITZ was born to Rodney and Robin (Hollenhors) Fritz on May 19, 1989, in Pipestone, Minnesota where she was raised and attended Hill Elementary School and then Pipestone High School. While she was in high school, she worked part-time at McDonalds in Pipestone. After her graduation in 2008, she became employed at Pizza Hut in Pipestone. She also worked at the front desk at the Calumet and the Good Samaritan Communities of Pipestone. Most recently she was employed for Suzlon in Pipestone. In May, 2010, Michelle was diagnosed as having Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Since that time, she has been undergoing treatment for this disease. On Thursday, August 4, 2011, she was admitted to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota where she died on Saturday, August 6, 2011, at the age of 22 years, two months and 22 days.

Michelle loved being with her many friends. She had a special bond and love for her nieces and nephews. While growing up, she enjoyed being in several local plays. She liked traveling and, of course, shopping. She will be remembered by her family and friends as never wanting to sit still but always being on the go. She had a great sense of humor and was quite the jokester. She was cracking jokes even through the last couple days of her life at the hospital.

She is lovingly remembered by her mother, Robin Fritz of Pipestone, Minnesota; her father, Rod Fritz and his wife Char of Brandon, South Dakota; three sisters, Pam Bush, Bonnie Fritz and her husband Josh, and Shauna Keophilalay, all of Pipestone, Minnesota; three brothers, Ron Fritz, Brian Fritz, and Adam Fritz, all of Pipestone, Minnesota; two stepsisters, Carlotta Styles of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Candyce Styles of Brandon, South Dakota; one stepbrother, Justin Styles of Brandon, South Dakota; her maternal grandmother, Rosalie Lopez of Oregon City, Oregon; and five nieces and eight nephews. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Delbert and Lois Fritz; her maternal grandfather, Robert Hollenhors; and her stepbrother, John Styles.
