June 28, 1964 – February 4, 2011
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Michelle, our beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister.
Michelle was born June 28, 1964 in Victoria, BC and moved to Calgary at the age of 18 months. Michelle was loving, vibrant and passionate about everything she did. She had a great sense of humour and an infectious laugh. One of her greatest accomplishments are her four children and she was never happier than when she was cooking and caring for Dan and the kids. Michelle was very active in martial arts and had her Black Belt in Karate. She was very proud to be a Red Seal Chef. She also loved her pets Sid (SooSoo) and Rocky (RooRoo).
She is survived by her loving husband of 24 years, Dan, and her 4 children, Connor Paul, Kathleen Anne, Shannon Dawn and Thomas Christopher. She will be forever missed by her loving parents Don and Mazel Chamberlain; brother Chris (Wendy) and their children Ty and Janay.
