She was a best friend and surrogate mother to many and will be terribly missed.


Excerpt from the obituary bulletin:

Michele D. (Hunter) Beck, a Pittsburgh native, was born on July 16, 1958 to James L. Hunter and Iris E. Hunter. She was best known for her infectious laughter, her kind-hearted motherly nature, and "take no BS" frame of mind.

She was a 1976 graduate of South Hills High School where unbeknownst to her on graduation day, she would kiss her future husband and the love of her life, Robert S. Beck (aka "Boo"). They were married on December 1, 1984, and soon after expanded their family with 3 girls, Ariana, Chelsey, and Mariah, of which she considered the greatest accomplishments of her life.

Our mother was unapologetically, a woman of God, best known as a prayer warrior and if she felt the urge, she would pray for anyone at the drop of a hat. She was a mediator, the glue that truly held her family together, the life of the party, decoration extraordinaire, and the best cook, hands down, but took it personal when she could not perfect  her macaroni and cheese recipe, like her sister's.

Over the years, she wore many different hats, some of which included: banking, interior design, and in the healthcare field. But on March 7, 2019, she was promoted to her most favorite pisition of all....Grandmother (more affectionately known as Na'nee). And I quote "Uhh...I just LOVE HER so much, I wish I could just unzip my chest and place her inside...she is my heartbeat and the air that I breathe!"

On April 10,2022, she started a new assignment...she gained her wings and became one of the most beautiful angels. We know she is with God, making all of the other angels laugh and is smiling down upon all of us. To us she'll always be more than just a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, an aunt, and a friend. She was our EVERYTHING! We love and miss you so very much already. Until we meet again.
