On Sept. 26, 2012, God decided to take the best angel He had created back. Michele (Couch) Eldred, born 12-9-59 in Odessa, Texas, passed away peacefully in her sleep, leaving behind her loving husband Michael Eldred; three loving and very caring daughters, first-born Brandi Jaye (Weedon) Adiputra, second-born Nikki Renee Allen Emerson and third and last born Lindsey Brooke (Allen) Wright; and a God-daughter Karry Ann Landis.

She was preceded in death by her father Johnny Couch. Survivors are her mother Barbara Couch; two brothers, Rick Couch and Phillip Couch; her grandchildren, Quest Lance Weedon, Coastas James Dorsey, Mazie Dabyan’Ann Locklear, Kiley Amethyst Burns, NaKayla Burns, Coley Isaiah Burns, Damien Terrell Jeff, Cain Prince Jeff, Miami Renee Jeff, Cherish Destiney Wyatt, Taylor McKenzie Wyatt and Braxton Henry Wright.

Michele was the most caring person in the world. She brought true meaning to giving the shirt off her back just to help someone else out. Michele was very close to her three daughters whom she lived her whole life for. This world has lost a truly special angel who was placed on this earth to spread her love, happiness and care-free spirit. To others she will be missed more than words can describe. In loving memory of Michele Renee (Couch) Eldred, who loved purple, we would like to honor her by asking everyone to wear some type of purple to her services.
