April 14, 1974 – October 9, 2009
Michelle, mother, daughter, sister, friend, passed away at her home in Courtenay, on Friday, October 9, 2009. Michelle was born in Lahr, Germany and lived half her short life in Nova Scotia and in her late teens moved to the Comox Valley where she made a nice home for her children.

Michelle is also survived by her son, Robert Jesse Huffman (15) and Ashley Dawn Huffman (13), both at home. Her brother, Robert Trevor, maternal grandmother, Ruby Baker, West Chezzetcook, N.S., fraternal grandparents, Thomas and Margaret Gear, Brantford ON, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She’ll be missed by friends and family in NS and BC. We’ll miss you and we all love you very much Michelle. Rest in peace.
