Tribute & Message From The Family

Michelle Lynn Wick passed suddenly at her home in Austin, Texas on November 14, 2018, at the age of 43 years. Michelle will be forever remembered by her husband of 10 years, Randy Wick, her parents – Edward & Barbara Svetlik of West Dundee, Illinois, and two step-siblings, Linda Wistar and Gary Svetlik. In addition, she leaves behind three beloved bulldogs – Lily, Weezy and Butchie.

Michelle was born and raised in West Dundee, Illinois - where she made many wonderful friends and lasting memories. As a child and throughout her life, she enjoyed summers at her family's vacation home on Piseco Lake, NY, where she loved to water ski. She graduated from The University of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) earning degrees in Nursing and Psychology. Post-graduation, she worked at Northwestern Children's Hospital as a neonatal intensive care nurse. After leaving Chicago for Virginia, Florida and Texas, she mostly volunteered her time to the numerous causes for which she was passionate.

Michelle was a kind, funny, generous and beautiful person. She taught children to ride horses (a lifelong passion) and was devoted to animal rescue. She rescued many dogs from terrible situations often putting herself at risk. Bulldogs were her favorite and many that she rescued came to live with her, including those who survive her.

Michelle truly lived life to the fullest and she would refuse to allow her passing to weigh heavy on peoples' hearts. Thus, a celebration of her life will be held in January in Austin, TX.

Memorial donations may be made in Michelle's honor to Austin Bully Butt Rescue (http://www.austinbullybuttrescue.com/) or Lupus Foundation of America https://www.lupus.org/
