Elizabeth Michele Huhn, 53 of Sumrall, woke up in the arms of her Lord and Savior Friday morning, May 13, 2022. She was born April 7, 1969 in Hattiesburg, the oldest of four children to Elbert Lavon and Glenda Faye (Davis) Shoemake. She grew up in Mt. Olive where she enjoyed the small town, South Mississippi life. Michele enjoyed riding playing outside with her siblings and riding her bicycle, especially going up and down her daddy's equipment trailer. She attended Mt. Olive schools, graduating with the Class of 1987, and went on to Jones Junior College and earned an associates degree. Michele worked for a few years at Delchamps in Hattiesburg before going into advertising sales for Pine Belt Promos, where she worked for many years. She is remembered as a sweet, loving daughter, sister, wife, and mother. Michele was the quiet type that kept a lot of stuff to herself, primarily to avoid putting anything on anyone else's plate. She didn't want to bother anyone, but when she spoke, you knew exactly what was on her mind. She was determined to say the least, the type that never gave up or quit on anything. Michele loved her family with all she had, and made sure they knew it. An avid animal lover, she placed them right behind her family on her list of priorities and you best not mess with them either. In addition, Michele was very good with arts and crafts, flowers and more. She had an eye for setting up events and gatherings of any type and size, planned and directed weddings, and much more. In her spare time, she absolutely loved going to the beach, and if she could get to Pensacola, FL, that is where you were likely to find her. Michele also enjoyed gardening and yes, SEC sports, particularly Mississippi State football. A Christian by faith and loving woman in all that she did, Michele will be so dearly missed by all whose life she touched. She was preceded by her father, Lavon Shoemake, her step-father Cecil Coulter, and her brother, Jason Shoemake. Left to cherish her memories are: her loving husband of over 14 years, Shawn Huhn; their daughter Monica Huhn; her mother, Glenda Coulter and her sisters, Pattie (Chris) Wheeler and Katie-Beth (Adam) Grimsley, with two nieces Kristin Wheeler and Merritt Grimsley, and one nephew, Tommy Wheeler. Michele leaves a legacy of one grandchild that she absolutely adored, Anna Claire Huhn, along with numerous extended family, friends, neighbors and clients over the years. Funeral services are set for Monday, May 16th at Oakdale United Methodist Church in Seminary. The family will recieve friends for visitation beginning at 11:00 AM, followed by the funeral service at 1:00 PM, with Bros. Boyd Thrash and Johnny Martin officiating. Afterward, she will be laid to rest in the church cemetery. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Huhn family in their time of need. Please keep Shawn and the entire family in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
