We the family of the late Melanie Wolfe would like to announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister on August 10, 2022, at South Shore Regional Hospital at the age of 35 with family at her side.
Melanie was born in Liverpool to the proud parents of Johnnie and Pamela (Heasman) Broome of Port Mouton N.S.
Melanie worked at Veinot’s Footwear in Liverpool while she was in high school. She was a very caring and passionate person who loved to help people and enjoyed spending time with her grandparents, Arch and Phyllis Broome. These two things are what made Melanie decide her career path in the long-term care field as a CCA studying at the Lunenburg Community College and receiving her degree.
After graduating, Melanie worked at North Queens Nursing Home in Caledonia where she gained many new friends and held them close to her heart. Melanie was also the Secretary and sister of the local CUPE chapter 2997. In an effort to provide the best for their children, Chris and Melanie started Lake Nancy Cabinetry where they worked side by side.
Over Melanie’s career, she met many new people and lost many people that she held close to her heart. She was truly a kind hearted soul. On June 26, 2010, Melanie married the love of her life, Chris with her family and friends in attendance. Melanie and Chris both loved kids and over time together welcomed the birth of their three beautiful children Payton, Hayden and Bryson. When Melanie held her kids, she would have a look of accomplishment on her face. Melanie and Chris’ love was unconditional. She always knew what to say to make things better.
At the age of 8, Melanie began taking piano lessons from Yvette Fisher and continued to practice this skill, even taking numerous exams at Acadia University to become an accomplished piano player. She unselfishly shared her musical talent by playing for her Sunday School, her church when the organist was not available, for the residents at the North Queens Nursing home and, most importantly, for her children.
Although Melanie was not an official member of the North Queens Fire Association, she shared this passion with her husband Chris. Being a firefighter’s wife, she often went above and beyond this role to help out with any and everything that was needed.
Melanie is survived by her husband of 12 years, Chris; daughter, Payton; sons, Hayden and Bryson;
brother, Chris (Karen) Broome of Beech Hill N.S.; brother Sheldon Broome of Port Mouton; father in-law and mother-in-law, Doug and Janette (Uhlman) Wolfe of Caledonia N.S; sister in law, Angela (John) Shorter of Tantallon N.S, grand mother, Ethel Heasman of Port Mouton, grandfather, John Heasman of Langley, BC and great great aunt, Sarah Smith of Liverpool N.S. She is also survived by many aunts and uncles.
Melanie is predeceased by her 2 still born children and her grand parents, Arch and Phyllis Broome of Port Mouton N.S; uncle, John Heasman of BC and sister-in law, Ann-Marie Wolfe of Caledonia.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandler’s Funeral Home, Liverpool N.S.. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 27th, 2022 at 11:00 am at the North Queens Fire Hall, Caledonia. North Queens Fire Department Chaplain, Carol Smith officiating. No flowers by request. Donations can be made towards the children’s education fund through the North Queens Fire Department. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Yvette G Fisher
Melanie was a quiet, shy girl. She clearly loved making music. It seemed to bring her calm, joy and a sense of quiet confidence.
I have known her since she was a baby. She was one of my first piano students. But more importantly, our teacher-student relationship grew into a friendship. How could it not ? How could anyone not just adore this girl? Her gentle spirit. Her kindness to others. She would often help encourage my younger students at various piano recitals when they were nervous to perform, despite the fact that she herself was nervous to perform!
I loved this girl. My Mom absolutely adored her. I feel that Mom was right there waiting when Melanie passed to give her a warm welcome.
Heartbroken. Melanie was and still is a bright light in a world of darkness. My life has been so much the better for her presence in it. I may have been her teacher, but she taught me in the end. How to be quiet and calm when life was not. How to rise above your anxietiy. How to anticipate what someone else may need before they asked for it.
What a joy. What a blessing. What a girl.
I love you Melanie.
Bella and Jordan Oickle
