CASA GRANDE — Michelle Thornton, 52, died on Jan. 3, 2021, at her home near Casa Grande.
Ms. Thornton loved to ride her Harley-Davidson, walk in nature, do yoga, hike, meditate, play with her dogs and most of all, be Nana. She lived her life trying to help others in need.
She was known for her everyday love and positivity she spread.
She is survived by her mother, Mary Ellen McRae; a brother, Jim Thornton; a son, Josh Thornton; and three granddaughters.
Celebration of life at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 15, at Heritage Coolidge Funeral Chapel.
Instead of flowers she would want people to "pay it forward" by helping others, loving others and doing kind acts for those who need them.
