Michelle A. Grubbs


Michelle A Grubbs, 50, of Lincoln, died peacefully at her home on November 14, 2015, with her family at her side. Michelle had waged a courageous four year battle with cancer. She beat breast cancer in 2012 but was later diagnosed with glioblastoma. A fearless person throughout her life, Michelle faced her cancer and her treatments with a graceful balance of optimism, realism and above all, courage.

Michelle was born in Charleston, S.C., on December 10, 1964, and moved to Lincoln at an early age. She attended Lincoln High School and the University of Nebraska. Michelle had a long history in the retail, sales and service industry. She and her husband, Ed, started Max Tan in 1993 and Michelle grew the business to five stores. She was devoted to her family, stores and employees.

Michelle's fierce sense of style was out-matched only by her generosity and sense of loyalty to her family and wide group of friends. When Michelle entered a room, she lit it up with her beauty and laughter. She was equally at ease shopping the aisles of Target or Louis Vuitton. Michelle will be missed by hundreds of friends and admirers from all over the world.

As a longtime member of AA, Michelle would have celebrated her sobriety birthday on November 16th. She was active in recovery groups in both Lincoln and Los Angeles and was especially devoted to her Monday Night FOM tribe.

Michelle was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Kathleen McCann, and sister-in-law, Susan McCann. Michelle is survived by husband, Ed Grubbs, sons, Richard (San Jose, Calif.), John (Lincoln), sister, Marie McCann Zaminer (Warwick, R.I.), brother, Patrick McCann (Pasadena, Md.), nephew, Andrew McCann (San Diego, Calif.) and her constant companions, her dogs, Phoebe and Joey.

A celebration of life will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with eulogy at 12:30 on Saturday, December 5, at Embassy Suites, 12th and P Streets. Memorials to Project Pink'd or donor's choice. Private inurnment at a later date. Condolences can be left at
