Michelle's family will remember her privately.
It is with great sadness and broken hearts we announce that Dr. Michelle Suzanne McLauchlin passed away at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Ross Tilley Burn Unit in Toronto on Wednesday June 19, 2019.
Michelle was born in Chatham 48 years ago. She was the little girl who grew up to become the best friend of her mother Noreen and her father Dr. Murray McLauchlin. She will be forever missed by her brother Dr. Michael McLauchlin, his wife Cecilia and their daughter Mia. She will also be remembered with great fondness by her partner Rui Raposo and his children Alexander and Victoria as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Michelle accomplished great things in her life, both personally and professionally. After graduating from the Blenheim District High School, her studies took her to the University of Western Ontario where she received a Bachelor of Science degree and earned the distinction of Medical Doctor in 1996. In keeping with her life ambition, she was received into the Residency Program at The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto where she became a Paediatrician. Michelle then furthered her studies to become a well-respected Allergist and Clinical Immunologist who was loved by her patients and colleagues.
In her spare time, Michelle became an accomplished musician. She appreciated all of the beauty that the world had to give. She was a kind and caring person whose thoughts were never far from the ones she loved.
Michelle’s family will be remembering her privately. Friends wishing to remember her are asked to consider supporting the SickKids Foundation in Toronto as children were always close to her heart, or the Ross Tilley Burn Unit at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in recognition of the care and treatment given to her following her accident.
