Our beautiful wife, mother and grandmother Michelle Colby Kroff, 70, passed away peacefully in her home on Tuesday, Sept. 10. She was surrounded by the love of her life, her husband David Kroff, and all five of their children. Michele was born July 16, 1943 in Tooele to George Alvin Colby and Aleda Lyon Colby.

They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City Temple Nov. 2, 1971. Michele lived her life to serve others. Her love of the gospel and of people drove her to always put others before herself. Michele was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 63. Over the past seven years, her family enjoyed many good times with her as they experienced each stage of her journey. She continued to teach family and friends through her example of dignity, grace and never-ending selflessness. Michele is survived by her husband David A.
