Michelle Renee Santucci, 57, passed away peacefully with family by her side on January 27, 2020 at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital. She was born on August 25, 1962 to Michael Charles and Darlene Kay (Smith) Miskowski. Michelle grew up in Fremont, Calif. and graduated from Irvington High School in 1980.
Michelle married her beloved husband, Albert Santucci, on July 6, 1985 and they started their lives together in the windswept hills of the Altamont Pass. The enduring love they still had for each other after 34 wonderful years of marriage inspired all that knew them. In 2015 they moved to Arvada, Colo. to be near their grandson, Brayden. Michelle adored being “Nonie” to Brayden and spent countless hours walking around Park Hill, eating fruit, and playing hide-and-seek with him. Al and Michelle moved to Clyde Park, Mont. in 2019 to retire in their dream home overlooking the natural beauty of the area and be closer to their daughter Nicole.
Her friends and family will always remember her contagious laugh and beautiful singing voice, her love of nature - manifested in the rock garden she was so proud of, and her natural mothering ability.
Michelle is survived by her husband Al, mother Kay Miskowski, brother Scott (and wife Kathy) Miskowski, son Eric, daughter Rachelle (and husband Matthew) Reese and their son Brayden, daughter Nicole, and several cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father Michael Miskowski and brother Eric Miskowski.
The Santucci family is not planning a service, but will instead be taking a trip to Pismo Beach to celebrate Michelle’s life. Please consider donating to the American Cancer Society in her memory.
