Michelle loved her grandkids. She always had a big smile on her face when she was with them. She got to spend her last two weeks with them making memories. Michelle was a big animal lover. She was always seen helping with neighborhood cats and other animals. She was often called the cat whisperer. She loved the beach and gardening. Michelle would always give a helping hand to people, and was not afraid to tackle any project. She was a great handywoman.
