It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom and daughter Michele on May 23, 2021 at Riverside Health Care with her family at her side after a courageous, hard fought battle with cancer.

Michele was born to Hannelore (Lori) and Joseph Raccio in Calgary, Alta. on May 12, 1967.

The family moved to Fort Frances, Ont. when she was at the age of 15. Michele attended Fort Frances High School where she met her best friend and soulmate Guy.

Their first born son Tyler was born October 16, 1991, then a few years later on November 18, 1994 Guy and Michele were united in marriage. Shortly thereafter they welcomed their second son Tanner on January 11, 1995, then their family was complete.

Michele held a very special spot in her heart for her boys, they were her everything. Her world. Family time was very important to her and she loved each one of us deeply.

Michele is survived by her husband and best friend of 38 years Guy; son Tyler (Rebecca); son Tanner; her beloved parents Lori and Dave McKiel of Calgary; brothers Sean (Heather), Ryan (Janeen) and Michael; mother-in-law Rita Bagacki; sister-in-law Sue Bigacki, Gael Belluz (Roy); brother-in-law John (Nikki), Shaun (Teresa) Bagacki; and many nieces and nephew, aunts and uncles.

Michele was predeceased by her father Joseph Raccio; grandparents Oma and Opa Hahn; and uncle Walter Hahn.

Cremation has taken place and celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Memorial donations can be made to La Verendrye Auxiliary or Hospital.

Michele will be sadly missed by her many friends and family.

So raise a beer in memory of our dear Michele.

Till we meet again my girl.

Arrangements in care of Northridge Funeral Home.
