Services to be Jan. 12 For Maxine Michaud

Maxine Michaud

Maxine Michaud passed away on Friday, January 5, 2019, surrounded by the love of family and friends.
She was born and raised in Claydon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and in her late teens she moved to New Westminster, British Columbia. She traveled often, doing her best to experience many new places. She loved fun experiences, making time to dance, play card games, RV, and get to know others.
In the early 1960s she met Bruce Michaud after moving to Seattle. The two of them soon became inseparable, married, and started a family together. They moved to Sitka in 1981 and lived here until 1987 when they moved to Southern California where she loved the sun. Her first job in Sitka was at Fisherman’s Liquor, and she later worked at Random House.
Maxine is survived by her daughter Tane Skultka (son-in-law Charlie Skultka) of Sitka; son Todd Michaud (daughter-in-law Lisa Michaud) of Oak Harbor, Washington; grandkids Justin (Amanda) Skultka, Jennifer Michaud and Cory (Coleen) Michaud; great-grandkids Raiden, Rylan, Sophia and Zachary; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her siblings, brothers Everett and Kenny and sister Doris.
She was known by her family and friends as being incredibly caring and thoughtful, while always having the interests of those around her as a priority. She was incredibly active, making time to involve herself in the community by being a part of the Yucaipa Elks Lodge, the Red Hat Queen Bees, years of bowling and shuffleboard, and, most importantly, shopping around town.
Her creativity was always shown amazingly through her fashion and love to decorate. She will forever be known as a best friend to many and an amazing mother to her family.
A celebration of her life will be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. January 12, 2019, at the Yucaipa Elks Lodge,  located on 2nd Street in Yucaipa, California.
