    Correct her birth name to Michelle Foisy Hubbard. She later changed her name to Michelle Jolie Meldrum afterwards.

    She was the daughter of Marilyn J. Hubbard and Gerald Edwin Meldrum, Jr.

    She has a son.

    I cannot verify her maternal grandfather yet, but Marilyn was not definitely born in Vermont because she died in 1983, while Michelle’s mother is still alive as of 2008. Take note that Marilyn did not take Gerald, Jr.’s surname. Gerald, Jr. is married to another woman.
