Obituary of MeiMei Lynn Huber

Meimei Lynn Huber passed away peacefully on December 15, 2023 at the age of 77 in Rochester, New York. She is survived by her husband, John “Neil” Huber, her sons, Chris, Matt and Jeff Huber, and her brothers Richard and Bill McMichael. 

Meimei was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 19, 1946 to her parents Jack and Dorothy McMichael. She moved to several locations in her youth including Long Island, Chico, California, eventually settling in Stockton, California during high school. She obtained her BA in History from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in 1968. In the same year she met Neil Huber (College of Law, 1968) and they married on August 18, 1968 in Syracuse. They remained married for over 55 years. 

Meimei got her Masters in Social Work from Washington University in 1975 and practiced for a few years before focusing on raising her sons in St. Louis, Missouri. In the early 1990s, Meimei continued to build her career rooted in her passion for caring for others. She obtained her degree in Nursing from the Barnes Hospital School of Nursing (Summa Cum Laude) and became a registered nurse. Her skills of empathy and patience led her to recognize a talent for elder care, and she worked for several years in home health care. In 2009 she retired to Santa Rosa, California in part to take care of her own mother in her 90s. In 2021, she and Neil settled in Webster, New York to be closer to family in the Eastern United States. 

Meimei was one of a kind: uniquely sincere with a beautiful smile and spirit toward others. She loved life, travel, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Donations in her name can be made to the Parkinson's Foundation at this link.
