Michele Marie Brinkman, age 53, of Lima, passed away on June 21, 2023, surrounded by her family at Mercy Health St. Rita’s Medical Center.

She was born on November 28, 1969 in Aurora, Colorado to Fred and Garnett Ann (Huysman) Heer, who survive in Findlay, Ohio. On May 28, 2016, she married Jeff Brinkman, who preceded her in death on May 31, 2023.

She was also preceded in death by her grandparents.

Michele was a 1988 graduate of Shawnee High School, then earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Findlay. She had worked at the Shawnee Rite Aid.

Michele will be lovingly remembered by her family and friends. Michele’s greatest gift to those who spent any amount of time with her, was her ability to make you smile, to make you laugh, to add a little bit of joy to your day. She also had an affinity and soft heart for animals.

A private memorial service and interment in Gethsemani Cemetery will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
