Michelle Renee Antoinette Magona
Michelle Renee Antoinette Magona, 50, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 2006, formerly of Margate, FL, passed away Monday, June 22, 2020 in Cape Coral. She was born May 30, 1970 in Kingston, Jamaica.
Michelle was of the Christian faith. Worked in the hospitality industry for over 25 years and was the go to person for all events planning within the family. She was passionate about her family and friends and loved spending time and laughing with them. She was the life of the party.
Michelle met her best friend Amy in Middle school and grew into adulthood together. They became more sisters than friend. Michelle’s nieces would actually ask to see their Amy instead of Michelle which became the running joke in the family.
Michelle enjoyed entertaining and was an amazing cook. She thoroughly enjoyed creating new recipes and mixed drinks. Feeding people was one of her passion.
Mush as she was known to her immediate family would always end her conversations with her brother and sister with the words “Peace Out”. So we say Peace out little sister, until we meet again!
My Michelle, my wife, my life, my soulmate, my best friend and world. Your love was the most special part of me. You were my focus, made me think. You had the biggest heart of anyone and was the best to everyone you knew and worked with. You always put a smile on my face. When we first met, you worked for the hotel and me, the restaurant company and we butted heads until we sat down one day. I asked her out and fell in love. We had adventures to Parrot Jungle, took a canoe trip and attended several Halloween Horror Nights and many others together, to when we actually got married. We got dogs and had to get married for them. They were the best for us. Over 20 years she made me whole and taught me so much. I was complete. I will miss Michelle; she was the love of my life. She is the candle light of my life that will never go out. I am honored to have had the time and love with her that felt like a life time. I Vincent Magona will always and forever love Michelle Magona – my friend, my love. Thank you for being my wife and my world. I love you!
She is survived by her beloved husband of 21 years, Vincent Magona of Cape Coral; loving father, Ranie George Hitchman of Cape Coral; dogs, Dixie, Patches, and Nuggett; as well as two siblings, Jacqueline Lynch (Jonathan) of Cape Coral, and Christopher Hitchman (Cecilia) of Summerville, SC.
