Its with great sadness to announce the passing of Michelle Yamanoha after a lengthy battle with aortic aneurysms. Her passing was sudden and peaceful. She is survived by her husband Robert, sister Patti, brothers John and Bill, and many extended family members. After receiving a Masters degree in nutrition from CSU, Chico she enjoyed a rewarding career as a renal dietitian. She was a foodie. From growing herbs and vegetables in her garden, to trying new recipes in the kitchen and discovering new places to dine. Her lone request for her service was the reading of the poem "The Chariot" by Emily Dickinson.
