  6. To Mrs Bateman, Carol, Leo, John & families, Daniel, Ben and Sarah,

    Our Heartfelt condolences and prayers to you all for the loss of your dear and cherished Michelle.
    I have known Michelle since we worked together in haematology at Dandenong Hospital over 30 years ago and feel so honoured to have been friends with her for all those years. To me, she was a woman of tremendous and unwavering faith, always happy and accepting of her crosses, a good example to us all.
    Our deepest gratitude also, for enabling us to be able to view the civil ceremony today… it was truly moving and heartfelt and it was beautiful to see and hear about Michelle through the eyes and words of her loving and adoring family.
    May God and Our Lady give you all the strength to carry on in your journey through life and may our dear Michelle rest in peace in the arms Our Lord in heaven.

    All our love and prayers,

    Cleo & John Sauze and family.

  18. I first met her in high school and over the years I never heard her say a bad thing about anyone. She always found something positive to say and made people feel better about themselves. My best memories are from the many camping, cross country skiing or rafting trips. Michele knew how to live in the moment and enjoy life. Just how very close Michelle was and has always remained to her family was obvious to all that knew her. My heartfelt condolences go to all her family now, especially Daniel, Ben and Sarah and to Carol. We were all fortunate to know her.
    With sympathy, Valda and family Michael and Genevieve.

  19. Rest in Peace Aunty Michelle. We will remember her charisma, her appreciation for all the simple things in life and the way she carried herself with such strength and positivity. Sending our love to the rest of the family especially Daniel, Ben and Sarah.

    Love Laura and Bianca

  22. Michelle was always true to herself and refreshingly honest. She openly declared and lived her faith, love for her children, family, friends and her love of nature. She was proud of her accomplishments as a scientist and continued in her beloved profession well into her illness. Michelle will be sorely missed and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to her children, her sister Carol and her family. I know if she were able to, she would give us a warm hug, her lovely smile and reassure us with some loving words. In our lives henceforth we will try to honour Michelle by mirroring some of her positivity and engagement with life, in return for all the positivity, love and engagement she gave us. You are forever in our hearts, Michelle. Julie and Howard
