Michelle Stewart Rivard

Michelle Stewart Rivard went home to heaven to be with her Dad, David Stewart, on Sunday, June 14, 2009.

Michelle was born Oct. 10, 1969. She grew up in Flint, Mich., with her two brothers, Michael and Dave (a.k.a. Vince), and how she loved her brothers. She later moved to Pagosa where she met her husband, Bruce Boyd, and they had a son, Bruce Allan Boyd. Little Bruce was the highlight of her life. Little Bruce not only shared his mother’s birthday, but also her spirit and zest for life. He’s all boy, and Michelle wouldn’t have it any other way. Michelle was an awesome mother and loved little Bruce with all her heart and soul. Michelle had a short life, but did a lot of living. She leaves a lot of friends and family behind, both here in Pagosa and in Flint. And from your Soul Sisters (we got your back, girl), anything your son needs, we have him covered, that’s a promise. We will all miss you and love you very much, and we know you’re up in heaven dancing with your Dad. Love ya, girl.

There is no funeral scheduled at this time. You can celebrate Michelle’s life with a toast and a prayer; she wouldn’t have it any other way, but Michelle’s way.
