Michelle Renee Wigand, 53, of Trail, Ore. passed away Thursday, November 14, 2013, at RRMC, Medford, Ore. Michelle was born in McKeesport, Pa. January 27, 1960. She grew up in California and moved to the Rogue Valley in 1992 where she became a bookkeeper.
Michelle was all about the outdoors and laughing at everything and everybody, especially herself! When she wasn't collecting antique glass she could be found outside gardening, whacking, mowing or doing her favorite thing - finding rocks and making them shiny. Michelle was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and had great compassion for all animals. Her dogs were her kids. She spent hours playing games on facebook and challenging the friends she called her "FB buddies" to word games.
Michelle leaves behind nieces, Cristy, Renee, Lyndsey, Kimi and Kelli, all of whom she would do anything for at any-time. She is survived by her sister, Lori Brown; and dad, Frank Wigand. She now joins her awesome mom, Nancy Wigand, in the heavens above.
