Michele P. Bellody, 66, of Torrington, entered into eternal life on Monday, April 10, 2023. Michele was the beloved wife of 43 years to Marc Bellody. Born in Torrington on June 18, 1956,
a daughter of the late Paul and Geraldine (Bourque) Lemieux, she had been a resident of Torrington for nearly all her life. Michele was a graduate of Torrington High School, class of
1974, and Northwestern Connecticut Community College. Prior to her retirement, she was employed at the YMCA, CVS Pharmacy, and The China Shop for many years and was a
communicant of St. Francis of Assisi Church. Michele was a passionate and talented artist with well-known works throughout the area. She painted murals that were on display of several local storefront windows during the holidays. Her other passion was spending time with her family, especially her two grandchildren, whom she loved so dearly. Michele enjoyed vacationing in Madeira Beach, Florida, every autumn, with her husband. She also loved music, taking photos, gardening, summers, and hosting family picnics. Her smile and laughter were contagious, and she will be missed immensely.
