August 15, 1957 – April 3, 2010
Mishelle let go of her extremely stubborn attitude on April 2, 2010, which allowed her to move on to her next life on April 3, 2010. When cancer attempted to constrict and smother her, the hope in her heart punched a hole in it and let the light of a pure soul shine through.
She was loved by many and showed us all what it is like to be super-human, as she faced all her challenges with tenacity and determination. She passionately loved her family, friends and dogs. Mishelle loved to laugh at herself, and others, and brought that joy to those around her. A special thank you to all her amazing friends who stood by her side throughout her long illness.
Mishelle is survived by her children, Jessica and Christopher Hovagimian; mother Heidi Boychuk; brother Riccardo Boychuk (Karin); niece Sarah; nephew Brandon; sister Renee Boychuk (Bryan Hetlinger); niece Madalyn; and nephew Jack. She was predeceased by her father James Roy Boychuk.
