MCNEILL, Michelle Molly

May 11, 1968 – July 3, 2013

With very heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beautiful Michelle. She died suddenly while climbing in the mountains that she loved so much.

Michelle approached life as an adventure, delighting everyone she met. She treasured moments with friends, blue skies and sunshine. Michelle taught us how to love, to be positive and to live life to the fullest. She would ask that you choose your steps carefully.

Michelle will live in our hearts and be forever cherished by her mother and best friend Mary-Jane Gray; her brother Cory; nephew Brent, niece Kiera as well as numerous family and friends including her friends within the mountaineering community.

A Celebration of Michelle’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Friday, July 12, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, please hug your loved ones and help a flood victim or a charity of your choice.

In living memory of Michelle McNeill, a PERFECT tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    Mary-Jane and family,
    I did not know Michelle well, but as a member of both ACC and RMRA, we shared a few ski trips and maybe scrambles together. She was much too fast for me, though patient and understanding. She came across as a lady with ambitions but never to hurt you. She was much too young to die. This was all too evident at the funeral last week. You have my deepest sympathies at this time.

    On Friday, it will be two years since you suddenly left us. I take some solace in knowing that you loved scrambling mountains as much as I do, and I will never forget how vibrant and warm you were … still are, in many people’s hearts. I miss you my friend. I’m so thankful for the trust and unique connection we had and as I hit Centennial Ridge this Saturday, I will leave some flowers in celebration of who you were in life, as you still are in memory. God bless you, Molly.
