In loving memory of our dear Shelley, who passed away December 12, within our hearts we'll always keep
A special place for you

McMICHAEL, Signe Kirsten (née SORENSEN,) LL.D., O.Ont.
It is with great sadness that the family and Friends of Signe McMICHAEL announce her death on July 4, 2007. Signe was born in Denmark on February 10, 1921 and, together with her parents and two sisters, immigrated to Canada in 1927. Upon their arrival the family settled on a farm in the Peace River Country, Alberta. After graduating from Alberta College, Signe spent the Second World War in Vancouver, serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force in communications. At war's end she moved to Toronto where, in 1949, she married Robert McMICHAEL. Together, Robert and Signe fulfilled their dream of building a log home on the banks of the Humber River in Kleinburg, Ontario, in which to showcase their growing collection of works by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Over the years, this wonderful art collection expanded to include many fine examples of works by Inuit and First Nations artists. From this modest beginning has grown the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Robert and Signe McMICHAEL's legacy to the country they both loved so much. Signe McMICHAEL was predeceased by her husband, Robert, and by her sister, Helen MINIKER. She is survived by her sister Astrid WRIGHT and by her nieces Penny FENWICK, Timmy MIDDLETON , and Deanna BETTY. Also surviving Signe are several grandnieces and nephews. The family will receive Friends at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 10365 Islington Avenue, Kleinburg on July 8, 2007 between 4: 00 and 7:00 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the gallery at 11: 00 a.m. on July 9, 2007 followed by interment on the McMichael grounds. All funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Heritage Funeral Centre, Toronto, 416-423-1000.
