  Michelle Marie Roll Minor was born to Susan and Kenneth Roll on December 17, 1967 and departed this earthly life in Grand Junction, Colorado on April 7th, 2022 as a result of a car accident. She grew up on a farm near Holyoke, Colorado, helping with chores, driving trucks and raising animals in 4-H. She was baptized in Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church and confirmed in the Lutheran Faith at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Amherst, Colorado and graduated from Holyoke High School. She then graduated from Colorado School of Mines with a degree in Metallurgy and Materials. After a summer in Egypt with Campus Crusade for Christ, she found employment with ArmCo Steel in Ohio, for two years and met her husband, Todd Minor, with whom she had two sons, Drew and Adam. Her life then revolved around caring for and helping with their education, home schooling and later serving as a math teacher and coach for their private school. After her divorce, Michelle returned to Colorado to find employment and because she loved the mountains, she found employment in Grand Junction. She was a passenger on her way to work and failed to fasten her seat belt where that decision proved fatal.

  She was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth Roll, her Grandfather, Robert Roll, and Grandparents, Elton and Eunice Oltjenbruns.

  She leaves to mourn, her two sons, Drew Minor of Nebraska and Adam and his wife, Sydney Minor of Alabama, her Grandmother Ruby Roll,  her mother, Susan and husband Larry Walters, her brother Jeff and Laura Roll and their children, Alyssa and family, Zach and family, and Emma Roll. She also leaves her sisters Carrie and Jonathan Kraft and Jamie and Chris Reyes and their daughter Evie, and a great extended family.

In death she was able to help others through Donor Alliance for Organ and Tissue Donation where donations may be sent or to The Lutheran Hour or Phillips County 4-H.  Cremation has taken place and a funeral will be planned for Saturday, April 23rd with Baucke Funeral Home in charge of the service.
