Obituary of Michelle Gates Miller
Michelle Gates Miller, 53, entered her eternal rest at The Suites - Parker on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. Michelle was born December 13th, 1968, in Buffalo, New York, to Michael J. Gates and Frances P. Gates. She moved to Colorado with her family in 1980. Michelle was a warm and generous person, a steady and loyal friend, and a loving and beloved mother and wife. She spent her career working in insurance, and her favorite place to vacation was Steamboat, Colorado. In February of 2020, Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer, and by May 2021 it had become Stage 4. Over the next 15 months she was the epitome of grace under pressure and holding up under impossible odds.
Services for Michelle will be held at the PACE Center in Parker, CO, September 14th, at 10:00am with reception at 11:00am.
Michelle is survived by her husband Scott, and their two children Noah and Grace, all in Parker; her mother Frances; her sisters Dawn and Barbara, and brothers Christopher and Matthew.
Thank you, Dawn and Chris, for standing in the gap during this trying time. Thanks Rich for being in the exact right place at precisely the right time.
Special thanks to Namaste Home Health + Hospice, the staff at Sky Ridge Hospital and The Suites - Parker for their kindness and dedicated care of Michelle during her final days.
