Melissa was born in Kamloops, B.C., where she attended school in Westsyde, and lived with her husband Doug and their two beautiful daughters, Sabrina and Chianna, who were the light of her life.
She loved to celebrate each of the Seasons' holidays and planned loving celebrations for each and every one. Summer vacations were spent camping, boating and fishing where her love of nature, animals, and the wilderness were shared with her family.
Her laughter, engaging smile, and music were always in abundance at family gatherings.
"Treasure her God,
in your garden of rest,
for in this world,
she was one of the best."
