A Memoir is a Memoir is a Memoir ?

Here's a little question tonight for some thought and input:

Suppose you want to write a memoir based on true, exciting events from your past life ... but, due to lapsed time, you have to fictionalize some of the 'in-betweens' to link the true events together.

How do you characterize the story?

"A fictionalized memoir based on true events."

"A memoir"

"A creative nonfiction memoir (or narrative nonfiction memoir)."

Actually, I wonder if most published memoirs don't in fact have a lot of made-up fragments to complete the story?

Any input will be a great learning experience for many, including yours truly, and greatly appreciated...
