Michelle Tipton, 67, of Orlando passed away Friday, January 22nd. She was born January 2nd 1949 in Perth Amboy, NJ to Adam and Vanna Pomianek, who preceded her in death. She is survived by her daughter Christina Hammock and son-in-law Damion, and her three grandchildren, Gregory, Jordan, and Julia. She is also survived by her older sister, Simone Skoczen and her husband Bob. She is also survived by her brother Glenn Pomianek and his wife Kathy and their children Vanna and Joe.



Michelle displayed great artistic and creative talent at a very young age. She was voted “most artistic” of her graduating class of 1967 at  East Brunswick high school in New Jersey, and had the leading role in her senior class play. While still in high school, she received an award from,and had her picture taken with, then governor Hughes of New Jersey for poster art that she had created. She went on to study art at the Pratt Institute and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. Her mastery of crochet revealed her genius at visualizing, designing, analyzing and illustrating complex patterns, and earned her a position as illustrator for simplicity patterns and later, as associate editor for good housekeeping’s needlecraft Magazine. Her abstract paintings earned her an exhibit at Rutgers University, and an example of her crochet work was selected for museum display.



For Michelle


What wisdom I have gained in life

Seems not enough for me to understand

How much she has meant to me

What better a person I am because of her

How much less I might be if not for her


So I cannot measure the loss

A depth my knotted rope cannot fathom

If I could envision the tenth of it

I might imagine the full measure

But no, even that is not in sight


And thus I turn to my God

Who would have the better measuring rod

As a father knows his own child

And empties the pockets of his life’s concerns

To spend the full worth of unconditional love


And in my turn, I beseech to my God

That her soul should be received

Free of these concerns

To gather a harvest of abundance

The unconditional love

She has without encumbrance

Given in this life

Send flowers to the family to show you care. Order Now
