Melanie Laureen McIntosh

March 12, 1965 – December 15, 2016


                Surrounded by family members and a steady stream of friends, Melanie McIntosh died on the evening of Thursday, December 15. The strength of her resolve and the depth of her hope for recovery were inspirational during her three year health struggle. Her death has left a great void for her family, colleagues and her many friends. Melanie is survived by her devoted husband, Donald Dalgleish, her three adored sons – Curtis (Allison), Gavin (Katrina), Russell (Paige) and her beloved grandsons, Heath and Archer.

Despite her untimely death, Melanie accomplished much during her lifetime. Moving to Kamloops in 1992, she wasted no time in achieving her RN designation. She became a proud and committed member of Royal Inland Hospital. She touched many lives professionally and personally working mainly in the ICU and PAR units.

Although committed to working at RIH, her first priority was always being a mother. Melanie was continually providing counsel and creating opportunities for her boys in their many activities – Melanie was always present, cheering the loudest!  She became a “second mom” to many. She was a devoted caregiver to her sons and others and always reminded them “I want you guys to feel loved.” Melanie loved animals, adventures and cooking. She entertained often – Sunday dinners were of great importance to her.  She was known for her sense of humour (oh, those jokes), wit and contagious laughter. Melanie never wanted to miss anything – she took part in everything that she could. She will be intensely missed and never forgotten.

Family and friends will be welcomed at a memorial service and reception in the new year. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice House. Condolences may be sent to DrakeCremation.com

Condolences for the family of “Melanie McIntosh 1965 – 2016”

Condolence from Jesse Royce on December 31st, 2016 8:03 am

Don, Curtis, Russ, Gavin, I am so sorry for your loss. Melanie was one-of-a-kind. People say ‘he/she/ is the nicest person I have ever met’. Melanie really was the nicest person I have ever met. My best memory of Her is when my wife Danielle and I had our first child, Adi. The next day we had to come back to the hospital for an emergency surgery at 11pm. As soon as we got up to recovery, there was Melanie. She walked around that recovery room with Adi for two hours, doing whatever she could to make our wait there easier. When we had our second daughter, my first thought was ‘I hope Melanie is there today!’. After that, whenever we ran into Her she always asked how the girls were doing, how our family was doing. She was very selfless, just wanted to know how everyone else was. Our hearts break with yours, she was a wonderful person.

Dear Don,

I’m really sorry to hear the sad news about Melanie. Although I didn’t know her well, I enjoyed meeting her — the last time was when you were on bikes at the Saturday market downtown.

Please pass along my condolences to her sons too.

Take care of yourselves.
