"There are men, Wynonna, mean as a rattlesnake, cornered at dusk. And there are demons, sweet as clover honey. And then there's him. I told you he was real. I never stopped believing. But he will rise. And when he does, you'll believe it, too."
―  Michelle talking to Wynonna about Bulshar in I Hope You Dance

Michelle Gibson is the widow of Ward Earp, the sister of Gus McCready, and the mother of Wynonna, Willa and Waverly Earp.

Biography

Willa mentions that Ward, her father, would abuse her mother. When this happened she would take the girls to Swan Reservoir.

After Bulshar Clootie was released from his imprisonment, Wynonna Earp travelled to a location and found Michelle revealing that she has known Michelle's location for some time and tells her she finally believes the stories of Bulshar and requests her help.

In the season 3 premiere, it is revealed by Wynonna that Ward forced her and Willa to lie to Waverly and tell her that Michelle left them, when in reality, she was taken away and is now in prison, where Wynonna has been secretly visiting her for the past four months.

Trivia

  • Her granddaughter, Alice Michelle is named after her, along with Alice's other grandmother (Doc's mother), Alice Holliday.
  • In the episode Purgatory, her name is listed as "Wendy Rossie" on the family tree Waverly made. Emily Andras explained on a twitter post that the name was written by the art department simply to fill a void on the wall. It should not be thought of as canon.
  • The character of Michelle was named after the Emily Andras' best friends, both named Michelle. One of them is Michelle Lovretta, the creator and showrunner of Killjoys and Lost Girl, both of which Emily has written for and co-produced.
  • The showrunner's personal fancasts for the character were Sigourney Weaver and Lucy Lawless,[2][3] the latter of whom Emily had a Twitter exchange with about the possibility of playing the role.[4]
  • She was the Carnival Queen, back in 1996, according to a poster in Pussy Willows.
