Michelle Rose May

October 6, 1960 - December 24, 2005

Michelle left us peacefully on Christmas Eve and became an angel. She had spent this year in a courageous battle with mouth cancer, she amazed and had everyone in awe with her spunkiness and her powerful determination to keep going and to live each day to the fullest.

Michelle was born 45 years ago in Seattle to her parents James and Madelyn, (now deceased). She grew up, went to school, raised her son and spent all of her adult life in West Seattle. Her personality and zest for life, lit up a room. She had a knack for working with children, and all of her life she also had a fondness for being near the elderly and always seemed to have a special connection to both generations and they always loved her back. Her favorite things were spending time with her boyfriend Scott, her family, her friends, gardening and flowers, Alki beach, and one of her favorites were her kitties...Rudy, Leftie and Rosie. She had always had a passion to save and care for lost and unwanted animals. She is dearly missed and loved by family and friends, her son Christopher, her siblings, Jimmy, Nancy, E.J., Martha Michael and Nick, her nephew Andy, and her little niece, Shawna, her fiends, Scott, Reba, Mike, Miss Emma, Big Jim, Kirby, Artie, Frank, Pastor Terry and many, many others. We want to send a special thank you to those who helped with her spiritual needs towards the end of her journey.

A celebration of Michelle's life will be held Saturday January 21, 2006 at 1 p.m. at the West Seattle Church of he Nazarene located at 4201 S.W. Juneau Street.

Memorials can be made to the American Cancer Society, PAWS or your favorite charity. There will be a gathering afterwards of family and friends, please come and share some happy memories with us.
