  1. In a lot of ways, Michelle was the maternal figure I’ve often wished was mine biologically. Non-judgmental yet always inquisitive and caring about everything going on in our lives. The beautiful thing was how unassuming and genuinely warm and helpful she would be in doing so. The acceptance and love she offered was a blessing to our entire family and no doubt to all that she came in contact with. I love you Michelle and will miss you dearly. I hope the great beyond is truly great. See you on the other side.

  2. Michelle was one of those people whose smile and infectious laugh, drew you to her. She was an expert at telling funny stories of the people and places that she encountered .Her love of cats endeared her to us . As “pet parents ‘ we had many antidotes to relate.

  8. Sending my sincere condolences to the family of Michelle. I met her at the McGeorge Building when doing research for a cemetery project some years back. She was the kindest most helpful person I have met in so many years. She was always ready for a good chit chat and had her dish of candies sitting out for all to take a taste. I will certainly miss her when I walk through those doors. RIP you grand lady as you fly with the Angels. Trish Nigh
