Fancy, Melva Marjorie, 83, of North Brookfield, passed away on Friday, April 5, 2013, at the Queens Manor Liverpool.
Born in North Brookfield, she was a daughter of the late Lester and Ruth (Whynot) Lohnes.
Melva was a homemaker. She was a past member of the Royal Canadian Legion, A.L. Patterson Branch #87. She enjoyed going for drives, dining out, playing guitar with her son and country music. Although dementia and Alzheimer’s had impaired her body and mind, there was not a country song that she did not know the lyrics to. Entertainers at the Manor would admire her musical talent and relied on her to make sure they were singing the correct words or playing the right chord. She loved to tell colorful stories and had the ability to tell you exactly the way it was.
Her greatest joys were her son and grandchildren. She enjoyed attending their many activities and social occasions. She loved her family to depths unimaginable and we loved her the same.
She will be deeply missed by her son Dwight (Louise), of North Brookfield; grandchildren Kim (Adam) Masland, of Liverpool, Shawn (Karla), of Ottawa, Trevor (Dawn), of British Columbia, Tristan (Sarah Haughn), of Bridgewater; great grandchildren Kelsey (Cst. Adam Robar) , Kieran, Tristan, Noah, Samantha, Braeden and several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her loving husband George; son George in infancy; sisters Elsie, Sylvia, Arvilla; brothers Lester, Warren, Rex and Claude.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. A Graveside Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, April 11th, 2013, at 2:00 p.m., from Rosette Cemetery, North Brookfield. Family flowers only. Donations may be made to the Children’s wish Foundation or to the I.W.K. Children’s Hospital. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.chandlersfuneral.com
