Michelle Westgarth

May 15, 2023

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Michelle Westgarth, just a few short days after her 44th birthday. She will be missed by her parents Gary and Deanne Westgarth and brother Geoff and his wife Kerri. Michelle led a full life with her dog Abby by her side. She was an avid nature lover; often taking solo canoe trips in Algonquin Park. Michelle initially was given a three-month prognosis and fought a courageous battle against cancer for 2 years, whilst still enjoying many happy moments surrounded by family, friends, and beautiful places. We will share more about Michelle’s journey at her Celebration of Life on Sunday, June 11, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. with visitation to follow from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, London. A livestream of the service is available for those unable to attend in person.

I didn't know you personally, only for a few short months on Instagram. During my stay 7 weeks ago in the hospital where I had brain surgery, your brave and heroic fight helped me a lot to get through my problems. You were a hero and forever will be. You will forever be in my memories and prayers. R.I.P. Michelle
