Memorial Service to be held January 18th at 1:00 @ Calvary Chapel Edmonds 8330 212th St SW, Edmonds WA 98026

Michelle Patrice Sanborn, 67, of Dickinson, ND, formerly of Redmond, WA, passed away Monday, December 2, 2019 at her home in Dickinson, with her sons and daughter in-law by her side.  A memorial service for Michelle will be held 1:00 p.m. PT, January 18, 2020, at Calvary Chapel Edmonds, 8330 212th St SW in Edmonds, WA  98026.

Michelle Patrice Sanborn was born January 25, 1952 in Oakland, CA.  She grew up in the Oakland area graduating from high school in 1970.  It was during this time that she met Gerald Richard Sanborn, and the two were married on April 4, 1970.  The couple moved to Washington where they eventually settled in Redmond, WA.  It was here where Michelle and Gerald made their home for the next 40 years.  They were blessed with two boys, Richard and Frank.  Besides caring for her family, Michelle held various jobs in the industrial manufacturing area of Redmond. After Gerald passed in 2011, Michelle spent a few more years in Redmond before moving to Dickinson, ND to be near her son Richard and his family.

Michelle enjoyed crafting, stamping as well as CB Radios that she used to connect with people all over the world.  She loved spending time outdoors, camping with her family and enjoying the mountains. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and cherished her time with them as well as the trips they went on.

Michelle will be remembered for her work ethic and fearless attitude when it came to taking on jobs traditionally filled by men in an era when women didn’t work in these fields, she was a pioneer..  She was never afraid of hard physical labor. She will be greatly missed by all those she knew and her two boys that appreciated her tough love and caring nature.

Michelle is survived by her two sons, Richard (and Rachelle) Sanborn, Frank Sanborn; grandchildren, Anna Beth Reynolds, Deirdre Michele Sanborn, Jennifer Rachelle Sanborn, Maria Ruth Sanborn, India Sky Sanborn, Julia May Grace Sanborn, Isabella Katharina Sanborn, Sarah Riley Sanborn, Melissa Geraldine Sanborn, Jeremiah Reno Sanborn, Daniel Richard Sanborn, and David James Sanborn. She was preceded in death by her Mom Gloria Nelson and Grandmother(who raised her)Winifred Nelson, her husband Gerald, her brother and aunt(who was like a sister), Chris Jungermann and Eileen (Nelson) Scott.

I would like you to know we are very sorry to hear about Michelle. Being neighbors at Ames Lake in Redmond for 20 years was amazing. She would often come down to visit when she was not working or busy with family. She provided us with good company and support. I will always remember her genuine laugh. Sending our thoughts to Richard, Frank and family. The Corkreys Janis, Patrick, Katie and Ryan
