With heavy hearts, and profound sadness, we announce the passing, far too soon, of Michelle Baumstark on Jan 27, 2022, at the age of 61 years. She passed at home, surrounded by family.
She will be deeply missed by her husband of 41 years, Rick, their 3 children, Rob, Joe, and Tom; two grandchildren, RJ and Nela; sister Lori (Juergen) and mother Carrie.
Rick and Michelle were high school sweethearts and never lost their adoration for each other. Early years together were spent building their family, their home, and their great network of friends. Later years only strengthened what they built.
Michelle loved many things, but most of all, she had a deep love of family, and they of her. She enjoyed and excelled at crafts, particularly sewing, as well as shopping, golf, and traveling. She and Rick travelled to many countries, and they embraced a world of wonderous adventures together. She also loved her job with South Common Home Depot and joined them at the opening more than 20 years ago.
The family wishes to express sincere gratitude to the palliative home care team, for their kindness and support during Michelle’s illness.
In keeping with Michelle’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at future date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
