Born on January 2, 1976 in Mesa, Arizona to parents Dan and Ann Hardwick, she was the only daughter among four brothers. A graduate of Mountain View High School, she is forever a Toro. She attended Mesa Community College and was always the entrepreneur, creating successful business ventures at a moments notice.
She is preceded in death by her younger brothers Jason Raymond Hardwick and Michael Thomas Hardwick and we can only imagine the sweet reunion they are having. Michele is survived by her loving husband of 19 years, Michael Chad White and her three handsome boys: Conner (16), Colter (12) and Tanner (10). Michele is a stepmother to Michaela and Hunter and a step grandmother to Hudson and Brayson. She is also survived by her parents Dan and Ann, and brothers Daniel and Matthew Hardwick. She has many family members and friends who miss her presence.
Michele served her community and neighbors through various callings as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and anyone who knew her was touched by her kindness, empathy and goodness. The love she had for her Savior and her family were unmatched, followed closely by her love of adventure. Always on the go and never one to slow down; her light, positivity, energy and adventurous spirit were infectious and shone bright until that final second she was called back to her Heavenly home.

Michele became a friend in the last couple years. We became acquainted watching our sons play school football. Michele impressed me with her enthusiasm, energy, and kindness. She was very positive about everything. I couldn’t help feeling better whenever I was around Michele. I learned more about Michele at her funeral today. I am amazed at the amount of adults and children that felt a special bond or were influenced by Michele. Her courage fighting adversity while smiling and serving others was remarkable. Michele White is greatly missed already. God Bless her and my condolences to her family.
