Michelle Thompson, a beloved wife & mother of two daughter and three grandchildren known for her dedication and charismatic personality, passed away on December 14, 2023. As a 30 year devout Christian & devoted member of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship she will be remembered fondly by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Born on October 7, 1963, Michelle was a shining light in the legal world for over 30 years. She worked tirelessly at multiple establishments throughout her career, with her most recent position being at Bell Nunnally & Martin LLP.

Michelle's educational journey began at Skyline High School and continued at Dallas College El Centro Campus. She valued knowledge and embraced learning, which greatly contributed to her success in the legal profession.

Outside of her professional life, Michelle was a woman of many interests and hobbies. As an athlete, she excelled in volleyball, bowling, and track. Her competitive nature drove her to achieve greatness on the field and court. In addition to her athletic prowess, Michelle also found joy in caring for her family. She dedicated her life to her husband Adante Thompson, daughters Rachel Sims, Tyler Sims and Jasmine Thompson, as well as her cherished grandsons Edric Boyce, Amir Sims, and Beau Ashton.

Michelle's proudest accomplishments extended beyond her career achievements. She took great pride in caring for her parents and ensuring their well-being. Additionally, she exhibited incredible determination by attending night school while working during the day to become a paralegal. Michelle's resilience and unwavering dedication were an inspiration to all who knew her.

A true diva with a compassionate heart, Michelle touched the lives of so many people during her time with us. Her exceptional nature set high standards for herself and those around her. Whether it was offering support to a colleague or lending an ear to a friend in need, Michelle always went above and beyond to make others feel valued.
