Obituary for Michele Mary McInnis

Michele McInnis passed away unexpectedly on October 22, 2017. She was 67 years old and resided in Carlton, Oregon.

Michele was born on May 23, 1950 in Boston, Massachusetts to her parents Christopher and Mary Walsh. She was their third child in a family of four siblings. She grew up with her family in West Roxbury, Massachusetts and attended a year of college in Amherst, Massachusetts.

In May of 1969, Michele married William Wright in Boston, Massachusetts. Together they had one daughter and relocated to Oregon in 1974.

In 1977, Michele met the partner she would share rest of her years with, Donald McInnis. They resided in McMinnville for a number of years, and then settled in to country life on the family farm located in the hills of Dundee.

Michele worked as a waitress most of her life and can be remembered for serving many friendly faces at Riverwood Golf Course and Roger’s Seafood. As the Willamette Valley began to flourish into wine country, Michele found her passion working at Duck Pond Cellars and running their tasting room for many years before she retired in 2008.

Michele enjoyed gardening, wine tasting, planning and hosting gatherings, and traveling. She and Don recently traveled on an extended vacation to Scotland and England. Michele also loved to play golf. After retiring together Don and Michele spent many of their afternoons at Michelbook Country Club with friends and family. As a cancer survivor in 1993, she participated in numerous sponsored events to support fundraising and cancer research.

Michele is survived by her husband Don, daughter Kristen Coghill (Brent), son Vincent McInnis, brothers Christopher Walsh (Diana), John Walsh, sister Kathy Gudgell (Henry) granddaughter MacKenzie Louviere, grandson Luke Louviere and 2 great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be planned in the future.
