Mechelle LeAnn Imhoff was born on December 3, 1982.

Mechelle accepted Christ as her Savior and was baptized at the age of 10. She attended Sylvan Hills High School and received her Associates Degree from UALR.

Mechelle was affectionately nicknamed Spitfire by her grandfather. She was a life force that never missed an opportunity to have an adventure or make a friend. She enjoyed building a Jeep that she named Thunderkat and was sponsored by suppliers to have the Jeep displayed at the National SEMA Convention. She had followers all over the country on her social media that took an interest in the customized build of the Jeep. She convinced her sister, Melinda that jumping out of a perfectly good airplane would be fun – so they did. She enjoyed kayaking, running marathons, mixed martial arts and dove hunting. She was a devoted Pittsburg Steelers fan win or lose.
Never one to look away from someone in need, she organized fund raisers for Camp Sunshine and sleeping bag donations for The Van for the homeless. She organized dog food donations for local animal shelters
