Michele Marie Crittenden

March 9, 1963 — May 16, 2024

Ennis, Texas

On Thursday May 16, 2024, Michele Marie Crittenden age 61 of Bristol Texas, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family. Michele was born on March 9, 1963, in Dallas Texas. She was raised in Duncanville Texas and graduated from Seagoville High School in 1981.  

Michele had numerous vocations ranging from ambulance driver to vacuum cleaner salesperson before landing a successful career in investment banking for the last 25 years. Like her jobs, she had many passions in life. The main ones were Jesus, Spending time with Family & Friends, Rodeo, Being Outdoors, Texas Rangers, and Volunteering at Campfire Creek Therapeutic Riding Center. She had a huge heart and poured it out onto everyone she knew. To know her is to love her and even more so, to be loved by her. It is hard to find the right words to fully encompass the accomplishments of this woman throughout her life. Through the ups and downs, her positive attitude and outlook got her through. She always found a way to make it work. Her space will never be filled. 

Michele is survived by her loving husband, Bobby Crittenden.
