April 2, 1971 - October 12, 2022
On October 12, 2022, Michele Eder, beloved wife and mother, passed away at the age of 51. Born in Seaford, Delaware on April 2, 1971, she was a daughter of Dennis and Carlteen Diehl. As a child Michele loved dancing, skating, and spending time with her family. She graduated valedictorian from high school. In 1994 her greatest gift came and she became a mother. Kayleigh was her everything and greatest joy.
In 2011, Michele married her “prince” Jeffrey Eder. They loved each other deeply, were best friends and true soulmates. As a bonus, Jeff had two daughters, Kristin and Britanee, along with a dog, Pumpkin. In 2013, Michele was blessed with becoming a grandma to Aspen, whom she adored.
Michele was ambitious and determined. One of her biggest accomplishments was graduating from Delaware Technical Community College as a registered nurse in 2015. Her compassionate heart made her perfect for her job at Delaware Hospice. She was passionate about her work and was amazing at it. Sadly, her health started to challenge her and she had to step away from her career long before she was ready to.
