It is with great sadness that I announce the youngest death out of over 50 doctors who have died suddenly, mysteriously, or were (confirmed) murdered in the last year.

The anniversary of the beginning of this nightmare was just days ago on Father’s Day. It is heartbreaking that we have lost so many wonderful (and mostly holistic) doctors. The latest is the beloved Dr. Michelle Hartley from Michigan who died Monday, June 20th.

From her obituary:

Dr. Michelle M. Hartley died suddenly of an apparent heart attack at her Comstock Park, MI. home Monday, June 20. She was 32.

Born July 19, 1983, in Adrian, Michelle knew at a young age that she wanted to do something to help others. She never wavered from that dream. She graduated from Adrian High School in 2002, attended Albion College and finished her undergraduate degree at Siena Heights University in 2006. From there, Michelle attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in Oct. 2009. She specialized in the field of pediatrics. She put her dream into action at Chiro Health in Rockford, MI. where she worked from graduation until 2014. In 2014 she moved into her own office and was affiliated with Michigan Family Chiropractic in Wyoming, MI.

Her patients loved her, she loved her patients, and she loved doing what she had always dreamt of doing – helping people. Michelle also enjoyed reading, traveling to new places, and spending time with her family. Being sandwiched between two brothers, Michelle learned early on the value of compromise and the strength of family.”

Michelle is survived by her parents, Mr and Mrs Hartley of Adrian; her brother , his wife  and her two wonderful nephews Cameron and Jackson of Noblesville, IN.; her brother  of Adrian, four aunts and three uncles.

We removed the names of the family members who survived her including her parents, siblings, aunts, and uncles from this site. Our heart goes out to her family and friends.

We do not know any more details at this time but are receiving messages from those who knew her. We are truly sad as it is apparent she helped them so very much.
