Terry L. Michels, 47, of Chippewa Falls, died peacefully on Friday, January 14, 2022, at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.

Terry was someone who always lit up the room with her contagious personality. Her fearless, selfless, spunky attitude was unmistakable and was incredible to be around. Family always came first. Oliver, her son, was top priority in everything she did. Terry had a steadfast, strong, determined personality and was intimidated by no one.
