ROCHESTER, NY – On the early morning of April 12, 2022, at the age of 50, we said goodbye to Michelle Ann Malave. A devoted mother, grandmother, partner, and friend, she is survived by her loving partner of nearly 16 years, Quentin Riddle, daughter Elizabeth (Rafael) Delgado, son Luca Riddle, and granddaughter Gabriella Delgado.
Michelle was born on January 22, 1972, in Rochester, NY to her father Juan Malavé, and mother Yolanda Bautista who predeceased her. She worked as a medical claims adjuster for MVP Health Care for 15 years up until the time of her sudden illness.
Michelle had an artistic spirit, she enjoyed restoring and painting furniture and interior decoration. She also loved going antique shopping and had an extensive porcelain collection. Those who knew her best would say she was a great conversationalist. Most importantly, she loved spending time at home with her family and will be remembered by them for having a kind, compassionate, and generous soul.
Michelle’s wish was to be cremated and her memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 19th at Rochester Cremation Event Center, 1118 Long Pond Rd Rochester (Greece) NY 14626.
