In Loving Memory ~
It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the loss of our dear mother Michelle. She passed away peacefully following a lengthy battle with cancer, with the tenderness of family surrounding her.
Michelle was a light to everyone she touched. Her courage, strength and positive outlook flooded to the people surrounding her. Michelle enjoyed the simple pleasures in life and sought to find beauty in everything.
On a sunny day, you would find Michelle reading a book in her front yard or painting rocks at the beach and she loved nothing more than cheffing up an amazing meal for her family.
Michelle was a recognized member of the community through various volunteer organizations. She felt the most invigorated on stage in many roles she had the pleasure of playing, in local theatres. Michelle would regularly reminisce about the decades she lived on the beautiful Quadra Island and the kind souls who made an imprint on her heart.
She is remembered by her parents, Pearl and Michael, her brother Mario, her children Jake, Katie and Colson (who she would call her life’s work), Mike, daughter in law Terralyn, her grandchildren Koah and Ava, and many other friends and family.
Our family wishes to send a special thank you to Dr. Morrison, Dr. Miller, and the staff at the CR Hospital who made such a difficult time a little more bearable.
