Born in Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, she was the daughter of the late Cyril and the late Yvonne (Richard) Roy. Marie was a hairdresser and later worked at her husband’s business.
She will be sadly missed by her husband Ronald Melanson, her three sisters: Léontine Cormier (Donald) of Saint-Antoine, Odette Melanson of Saint-Antoine, Rita Falkowski (Stanley) of Garfield, NJ, her two brothers: Louis Roy (Phyllis) of Moncton, Yvon Roy (Barbara) of Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, two brothers-in-law: Albéo Cormier of Moncton, Hector-Eddy Richard of Moncton, and several nieces and nephews.
Marie was predeceased by two sisters: Gérène (2001), Aline (2013), and one brother-in-law Norman C. Melanson (2007).
Marie loved good jokes and gags. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed offering meals to family and friends. She was a very loving person. Her laughter, her warmth and the twinkle of her eyes will remain in our hearts forever!
