Michelle Beatriz Canals CorpuzMay 31, 1975 ~ March 27, 2014A true example of charity, compassion, strength and faith, our sweet Michelle passed away March 27, 2014 in West Jordan, Utah, at the age of 38. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Omar and Beatriz Canals, she married Douglas Thatcher Corpuz August 20, 1998. Michelle now returns to her heavenly home after a long and valiant battle with cancer. Her determination to live life to the fullest and to raise with her husband their two beautiful daughters has been an inspiration not only to her entire family but literally to hundreds of others, whose lives she has touched in so many ways over the years. Cancer has claimed her body producing deep sorrow for our brief separation, but the atoning sacrifice of the Son of God gives us the assurance of a joyful reunion in His presence when our time also comes to depart from mortality. Michelle is survived by husband, Doug; daughters, Trinity Raine (13) and Tayja Michelle (10); parents, Oscar Omar Canals and Beatriz Belhot Canals; sisters Jenisse (Jim) Svendsen, Joana (Brian) Tripp; Veronica Canals; brother Danny (Jennifer) Canals, as well as by uncles, aunts and cousins, a host of nephews and nieces on both sides of her family, and in-laws who truly adore her.One of Michelle's last wishes was that in lieu of flowers donations will be made to the Michelle Corpuz Donation Fund for her daughters' education at any Wells Fargo office.Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 at the West Jordan Westbrook Stake Center, 4113 West 6200 South. Viewings will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday evening and one hour prior to the services on Tuesday at the same location. Interment, Larkin Sunset Gardens, Sandy, UT.
