Obituaries » Michelle L. Larkin

Michelle Lyn Larkin, 35, recently of Culpeper, passed away suddenly on September 11, 2018, at home from a blood clot.

She was born on June 6, 1983, in Manassas but lived most of her life in Fauquier County. Michelle graduated from Liberty High School in 2002.

Michelle was born with developmental disabilities and a seizure disorder, but that did not hold her down. She competed as a Fauquier County Special Olympics athlete for 25 years, starting on the track and field team, but her favorite sport was bowling. She was an avid bowler. She was always the first one at bowling practice, arriving even before the coaches. Over the years, Michelle earned scores of ribbons, pins, medals and trophies. She had the highest bowling average among the females and won the female MVP at the sports banquet.

Michelle was also an animal lover. Through the years, she had all sorts of pets, from cats and dogs to goats and rabbits. Recently she was raising chickens and enjoyed caring for them, even scrubbing their feet with a washcloth to keep the eggs clean. Michelle gathered the eggs each morning and sold them for spending money.

As a final tribute to Michelle, her parents donated her organs to the Washington Regional Transplant Community. Michelle was a kind and thoughtful young lady, always concerned about others, and her parents knew that Michelle would have wanted them to do this.

Michelle is survived by her parents, Francis and Doris Larkin, recently of Culpeper; her brother Wayne Larkin; two half sisters, Heather and Nicole, and a half brother, William. She leaves many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by both sets of grandparents.

Michelle’s parents will receive family, friends and teammates Saturday, September 29, at Baker Post Funeral Home, 1001 Nokesville Road, Manassas. There will be a celebration of life and visitation at 3 p.m., followed by a service at 4 o’clock.
