It is with much love and sadness, Melissa’s family announces her unexpected passing in Vernon, BC
Melissa was born in 100 Mile House, raised in Revelstoke, and settled with her family in Vernon. At the time of Melissa’s passing she had been a healthcare aide for 5 years at the Heron Grove Good Samaritan Society. Melissa loved her job and excelled in her profession. She had a contagious smile that could light up a room. It was her kind and compassionate ways that would draw people to her. Anyone that was a part of her life will miss her immensely. Melissa’s children were always loved and meant the world to her. In her spare time Melissa had a passion for writing inspirational sayings, poetry and songs. Melissa loved flowers, unicorns, angels, butterflies, anything shiny and sparkly.
