October 9, 1954 - December 10, 2021
Michele Marie Onderdonk, 67, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 10, 2021, at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. She was born on October 9, 1954, in Albany, New York to the late William Robert Thomson & Evelyn Jean Davies Thomson. Along with her parents, Michele is reunited in passing with her sister Kim Charlton and Kim’s husband James. Michele Onderdonk was many things to many people. She was a child of God who found strength, hope, and solace in His word and companionship with her sisters in Christ. She was a teacher. For more than 35 years, she passed her love of reading and history on to her students. She was the ultimate homemaker who had a gift for turning a house into a home for all who visited. Through a home-cooked meal, a lively round of cards, or a listening ear, she had a knack for understanding people and making them feel welcome. Michele was a devoted wife, loving mother, dear sister, and doting grandmother. She was a treasured aunt and faithful friend. She will be deeply missed. Left to cherish Michele’s memory are her adoring husband of more than 46 years Leonard Onderdonk of Murrells Inlet; their children, Lorien Walsh and her husband Patrick of Denver, CO & Derek Onderdonk and wife Kelly of Culpeper, VA; her grandchildren Riley, Megan, Aiden & William Onderdonk, and Finnegan Walsh; brother Chris Thomson and wife Anita of Nashville, TN and their sons Andrew & Cole; sister Lynn Colquette and her husband Brian of Nashville, TN and their daughters Abigail & Emily; as well as a loving extended family and supportive friends and neighbors. A celebration of Michele’s life will be held on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at Burroughs Funeral Home, 3558 Old Kings Highway, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576. The family will gather to greet friends from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will immediately follow the service at Hillcrest Cemetery, Hwy 544, Conway, SC 29526. At the request of the family, please consider memorial contributions in lieu of flowers. Donations in Michele’s name may be made to the Joyce Meyer Ministries at https://joycemeyer.org.
