In Remembrance

Michelle Reilly

Michelle Reilly, 61, died suddenly from heart failure on Friday, October 9, 2015 at her home in Rohrersville, Maryland, while caring for her horses.

Michelle was a gifted and knowledgeable shepherdess who raised sheep for over 25 years. She was owner of Triple R Farm, where she raised Registered Romney sheep. She was a lifetime member of the American Romney Breeders Association and an original founding member of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.

Festival attendees will remember Michelle from her booth, Wool N Quilts, in the Main Exhibition Hall, selling beautiful fleeces and hand spun yarn from her sheep as well as handmade quilts. At the time of her death, she was working on a quilt for the newest addition to her family, scheduled to arrive in early December.

Michelle leaves behind her husband, Jack Maurer, two children, Gabriel Reilly and wife, Kristen, and Christine Mariano and husband, Jason; and seven grandchildren.
