With great sorrow, our family announces that their beautiful Michelle Renee Quihuis Woodruff went home to the Lord at the age of 56 on the 4th day of January 2022 at 11:45 am. She bravely battled autoimmune disease for over 25 years with uncompromising, fierce and grace.
Michelle was born on the 7th day of November 1965 in Inglewood, California, and moved to Tucson, Arizona, in 1970. After graduating from Sahuaro High School in 1983, she worked for Bank of America and then moved on to become a Medical Coder. She loved crafting and was an avid volunteer with Pop Warner and Pantano Little League. She devoted her life to her family and friends. She could fill a room with laughter and light it up with her smile. Michelle was full of Joy, had a generous heart, and Loved Big!
