In Loving Memory Of
Margaret “Minnie” Melanson
1941 ~ 2022

Dieppe, NB – It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mom Marg “Minnie” Melanson at the Moncton Hospital, on Thursday, March 31st, 2022, at the age of 80 years old.   

Born in Kentville, NS, she was the daughter of the late George Richardson and the late Clara Penney.

Mom made many friends working as a waitress at Palace Grill, Cy’s Seafood and Fishermen’s Paradise. Mom loved gardening, so please plant a flower in her memory. 

Minnie will be sadly missed by her loving children, Robert (Kam), Kim (Kathy), Larry (Sandra) and Donna; her five brothers, Tom (Susan), David (Darlene), Rick (Krista), Shawn (Dorine) and Andy; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, Marg is now resting besides her common-law husband, Donald; with her son, George; as well as two sisters, Elizabeth and Katie as well as her brother, Vernon.

In respect of Margaret’s wishes, there will be no visitation and no Funeral Service.

The family want to thank from the bottom of their hearts, the staff and the Doctors of the Moncton Hospital of Moncton for making her comfortable and for all the good care and support provided to Margaret and to her family during the hardest moments. 

A donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
