Tribute in Memory of: Maria DeMichele

Honor Maria DeMichele


In memory of Maria DeMichele, an amazing friend and role model to many FORCE members.

Personal Story

Maria, as a FORCE Outreach Coordinator in Westchester, NY, reached out to many individuals in her community to comfort and empower them to make informed decisions about their health and the health of their families. She wanted to make sure that others did not travel this difficult journey alone and in doing so found your friendship. She was an inspiration to us all and an important member of our FORCE family.

Maria was an independent spirit full of energy and determination and ran her own business, Prohats, for 25+ years. She was best known for her cheerful smile, positive attitude, and love for life. She loved music, cooking, and all of the simple pleasures & beauties of life. She adored her friends and family and was always concerned with the happiness of others. She liked to have fun and was most happy when others were having fun as well. She brightened any room, as memories of her will continue to do, always.

We are so grateful that Maria was part of our lives and shared her wisdom and warmth with us. She will be remembered and will be sorely missed.
