I met Michelle about 3 years ago when my wife Trina Urbanski Battaglin and her were reunited by a simple phone call. Michelle and Trina shed tears of joy in their reunion. Trina told me how Michelle was the only True Mother she ever had, gave her a room, spent time with her, loved and cared for her. Sadly on 10/7/17 Trina passed while pregnant and Michelle was there to give me strength and kind words. Michelle was an incredible person who was kind and caring and It was a blessing to have known her.
I know my wife Trina and my daughter Avavira were there to greet her, as well as may others she had touched
Rest in peace Michelle, we all love you.
Michelle was a kind and loving person who loved wildlife, flowers and especially cats. I connected with her this way. We both rescued cats and loved them so very much. I shall always remember her and keep her in my thoughts and prayers.
My sincere sympathy to all her family members.
I met Michelle 10 years ago this month when she began volunteering in the office at St. Andrew's Church. We became good friends immediately. I've never known a nicer, more considerate person. My wife and I shared many breakfasts, lunches, and trips to the Public Market with her, and these occasions were filled with laughter and mutual affection. We were dear friends, and I shall miss her very much. She was so special.
