LeFAUVE - Michelle September 9, 1981-May 26, 2017.
Michelle moved to Buffalo from Grand Island after meeting her husband, Nathan Wallace, in 2001. She was a devoted wife and mother to Nolan, Becca, and Parker. Michelle struggled with a rare autoimmune disorder called myasthenia gravis, but she always persevered with courage and hope. Her last name, LeFauve, is translated from French as both "the fawn" and "big cat". Anyone who has had the honor of knowing Michelle understands that she embodied both translations. She was charismatic and lived life with vigor, like a fawn prancing through Tifft Nature Preserve. She also loved fiercely, protecting her pride like a lioness of the Serengeti, and her pride always extended far beyond her blood relatives. If she got to know someone and they were not a complete jackass, she would make them part of her pride (and even jackasses got a second chance). Michelle will be profoundly missed, but her powerful love will live forever. A Memorial Service will be held at 7 PM on Thursday, June 29th at Pilgrim-St. Luke's & El Nuevo Camino United Church of Christ, 335 Richmond Ave., Buffalo.
