Born on April 25, 1988 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, beloved Michelle Grambeau transitioned to the light on February 4, 2021, with her parents and sister at her side.
In her short 32 years, Michelle lived many lifetimes and walked through the world to a beat that most people cannot hear. Her intuition and gift of spiritual perception was tangible, as she embraced wellness, arts, holistic healing and all of nature’s offerings.
In her zest for life she continuously traveled the world: receiving a scholarship and graduating Magna Cum Laude from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, with a degree she created in Urban & Environmental Policy & Innovation. From an early age, she was a leader in both sports and the arts, notably, she played the double-bass in the award-winning high school orchestra and fiercely led her teammates to victory on the Pioneer and Trinity University soccer fields.
Michelle’s passion for truth and love for humanity ran deep. After moving to California in her early twenties, she became a certified yoga teacher and started a corporate wellness company, World Wide Well, which brought healing, music, and ancient wellness traditions to the lives of thousands. It was here that she brought together her special skills and sensitivities to help make the world a more sustainable and saner place to thrive.
Her dynamic creativity and magic also came alive in her travel, writings, fashion-sense, photography, experimental vegan cooking, music and yoga classes. She collaborated with many renowned transformational communities all across the globe, where she taught workshops and co-wrote a book & card-deck on the healing power of playfulness and connection.
Upon her diagnosis at 29, Michelle approached her ‘triple-negative’ breast cancer journey with the same grit and grace as she did with life, sharing her unique spiritual and wellness perspectives with everyone she touched. Those who knew her will always remember her gigantic personality, intelligence, contagious smile and simple magic bursting forth with passion and love.
Michelle is survived by her parents, Gregory and Amy Grambeau and her beloved older sister, Marcie Grambeau. Michelle is also remembered by a large extended family, her friends, many worldwide communities, and her two amazing cats Pacha and Huxley.
A small, private garden memorial service was held in Santa Monica, California upon her passing - and small impromptu ceremonies across the world are being held in her honor. The family will hold an official Celebration of Life Memorial in Ann Arbor, Michigan in the summer.
