Michele, fierce compassionate sister in the struggle.It seems right that you left us on International Women's Day. Thanks for your wit, courage and loving kindness. So grateful we could share this last journey despite geography. Still can't believe you have left us.

I haven’t seen Michele in person since the Pram Factory days in the late 70s. Michele was vibrant and lively, positive and warm and always very funny. We became friends again in more recent years on social media and it was fantastic to have her witty presence in my life again. I already miss her wild raves and her great generosity of spirit. I do hope she is looking down on us and having a laugh!

Every now and then a very special human comes into your life,
Michelle was truly one of them, truly authentic and pure, so rare in this world.
She did everything with style and grace
and even when sick she was making others smile and showing such strength and wisdom.
She loved a good laugh and
boy did she know how to make others laugh with her quick witt and sense of humor!
I feel blessed to have met her,
Michelle was just precious
I feel her absence in this world but will remember her and treasure everything she taught me.
Rest in Paradise Michelle
Love Pemily

You would never shrink to the world around you and you inspired all of us to be more, more of ourselves. You valued me and saw me at it times where I forgot myself or no longer was seeing a true picture. Namaste, Michele.

Michele, beautiful friend,

There are so many memories that will live deep within my heart; the sound of your laughter (I can still hear it), the many home-cooked meals we shared, your sense of humour and your eye for op-shop fashion finds, just to name a few.

One of my most vivid memories was from 2006, when I was studying year 12. You knew I was highly stressed and so you invited me over for dinner.

I remember walking into your house, the soundtrack to ‘Pulp-Fiction’ playing in the background and the smells of puff pastry filled the air (you were making spinach and feta pie). Your tall-woman silhouette walked towards me and you wrapped your arms around me to let me cry a river of tears, and to protect me from the stresses of reality that seemed to be; you made everything better.

Michele, how I wish I could have wrapped my long arms around you, to protect you in your time of need.

You will be forever missed but we are so blessed to have known you. These memories we will cherish for always.

See you again one day,

I will miss Michele in so many ways. I will miss her honesty and sincerity and her love of life. She taught me so many things about courage and strength and her hilarious sense of humour always made me feel so much better about life and its experiences. I will miss you so much Michele but I know your warrior spirit lives on not only with me but with so many people's lives you were apart of. You are and always will be a unique angel of truth and I wish there were more people like you in the world. Thankyou for being true and always yourself. It is an honour to of known such a beautiful person like you Michele. Love always and to infinity and beyond. Damasque xoxoxx

I met Michele through our mutual friend Mary Christie when Michele lived in Sydney in the early 80s. We were neighbours in Kings Cross for a time. We reconnected through social media in more recent times. Michele as I knew her in her late 20s was very much the Michele I could hear in her Facebook posts, which were frequent, and always welcome: amusing, laugh out loud funny, provocative, informative, thoughtful. I describe her to people who did not know her as "my fierce feisty beautiful friend". She could be combative; also sensitive. She was caring, and outrageous. She was rock'n'roll. She was art. She was performance. She was politics. She introduced Presbyterian me to same-sex and shall we say less conventional sexual mores (I remained a bystander - dancing together at Kinsella's was as out there as I got). Michele permitted me to give her a colour cosmetics makeover even though my hands were careless, I used frosted pink lipstick, and her beauty didn't need any help from me. She was a straightshooter who told it like it was. She was as generous as anyone I've ever known. Witty, acute, astute. Every human being is a universe, and every death is a cosmos lost. Michele was a star. Her loss leaves this world a darker place.
