Michelle Sprague, 55, passed away early on Wednesday morning December 4th, 2019 in Yuma, Arizona. She was hit by a car while trying to save her dog that ran into the road. She was an incredible mother, sister, and daughter.
Born in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, she was the daughter of Frances Marcell and Bertram Sprague. She was a retired Drill Sergeant in the United States Army where she received dozens of medals and awards. She proudly served her country for 21 years. She then continued on to work for The Pierce County Sheriff's Department and The Department of Homeland Security until she returned home to Wisconsin to care for her ailing father until his passing.
Her favorite thing in the world was cruising on the open road on her Harley Road King. She was a strong, independent woman who traveled around in her RV after retiring. Between her service in the army and retired travels she visited almost every state in the country as well as Germany, Korea, and The Caribbean.
She is survived by her two children, Kymberli Chelle Allen and Cedric Thomas-Edward Allen; as well as her two dogs, Lucy and Piper. She was one of four kids, older sister, Vicki Kringle; older brother, Todd Sprague; and younger brother Trent Sprague.
She will be sorely missed by her family and many friends she made along the way. There will be a Celebration of Life January 2020 in Washington state, exact date and location TBD.
