Michele Demaree Armbruster, went to be with our Lord on October 19, 2013 in Visalia.. Michele was born in Visalia, on February 25, 1969 to David Demaree and Belinda (Horine) McCormick. She attended Mt Whitney High School, graduating in 1987. She continued her education at College of Sequoias and attained her BA degree at CSU Bakersfield, Ca. She worked as a substitute teacher for several years before deciding that her desire was to work with the special needs children. Mother of three yet she found time to help with the care of her grandparents, Noble and Elsie Horine until their deaths in 2005 and 2006. She was a giver, a helper, a listener, a compassionate person, always ready to help in any situation. She volunteered at the childrens ministry of the Visalia Naz Church, teaching Sunday School for several years and volunteering with the Naz sports camp. She also helped with vacation bible school at Grace Community, and served as Team Mom for El Diamante wrestling for past three years. Her hobby was her children, active in their academic, sports and church activities.
Michele was preceded in death by her grandparents, Noble and Elsie Horine and Richard and Dorthy Demaree. She leaves to treasure her memories, her husband, Dennis J. Armbruster, her parents, David and Dianella, and Craig and Belinda McCormick, her children Eastan L. Demaree, Ashton D. Demaree, and Audre A. Armbruster, her sister Melissa (Greg) Baskovich, brother Jared (Andrea) McCormick, and sister Kristi (Blair) Jensen.
Visitation will be Friday, October 25, from 3pm to 6pm at Evans Miller Guinn Chapel in Exeter, Ca.

To Michele's family - I am sorry I was not able to attend services for Michele yesterday. I had to accompany my husband to a medical test. I just want to express my sympathy to you all - especially Michele's mom and sister. I have very sweet memories of Michele at VCA and in our wedding in 1984! She was always so positive and a bright spot in a teacher's day. I have seen Michele periodically in the past few years, even subbing at MWHS, where I now teach. I am privileged to say I was her teacher in junior high and so proud of her successes in life. My best regards and fondest memories to you - Vickie Sims Minick 7th and 8th grade teacher at VCA

Mom, you were not only my mom, but my hero, and my Best friend. Well we are coming up on the one year anniversary of your passing in about two months here. Still can't believe your gone. I still walk around in the house looking for you as if you are still here. I hate what her death has done to our family. Instead of bonding us all closer it has torn us apart. I don't get to see my older brother and sister as much as I did when my mom was alive but were closer as a whole. Mom, we miss you so much. You were our rock! You were an amazing mom and life is so much less fulfilling without you.
