elevated SVFfa April 5, 1972 – April 18, 2021

elevated SVFfa It is with deep sadness that the family announces Melanie’s sudden passing from pneumonia at South Lake Hospital, on Sunday April 18th. Melanie was a shining beacon of light, always wanting to make people happy! She was intelligent, determined, interesting, funny, and very caring. She had a quirky laugh and all those who knew her, loved her. In spite of her various serious health issues which began as a teenager, she was a very positive person, full of life, who was a joy in your company. Melanie’s life on earth came to an abrupt end, days after celebrating her 49th birthday, and she became an angel of God.

Dearest mother of Dylan James (Leslie) and the late Madison Bailey (February 21, 1998). She was the much loved sister of Scott (Marie-Claude), and Jason (Deya)
