Michell (Hallett) Hipple: Dec. 15, 1971 – June 11, 2021



With great sadness the family of Michell Lynn Hipple (Hallett) announces her sudden passing on Friday June 11, 2021 in Kalispell, Mont.

Michell was born on Dec. 15, 1971 in Seattle Wash. She is survived by her life partner Steve Newman and her three children Alanah Johnson, Mariah Hipple and Riley Hipple, of Cle Elum, Wash., as well as her father Michael Hallet, father Thomas Crabtree, brother Thomas Crabtree and sisters Denise Madsen, Cindy Sutherland, Darlene McCollough and Malinda Hallett.

Michell was preceded in death by her mother Linda Crabtree.

Michell was a 1990 graduate of South Whidbey High School. She loved camping, collecting rocks, enjoying the outdoor scenery near the river banks, and singing her favorite songs. Michell is most remembered for loving her children, loving her friends and family, and laughing. Michell’s laugh was full of joy and she had a smile that was as bright as the sun. We will miss her always.

A celebration of Michell’s life will be held 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. July 31 at 220 N. Pennsylvania Ave, Cle Elum, Wash.
