Melody Anne Smith 1971 – 2017

In Memorial


May 13, 1971 – October 10, 2017

Our Melody slipped away with her family at her side, due to complications of diabetes. Born in the Northwest Territories, she was always full of life. She spent her entire working career in the hospitality industry, starting at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Gastown, but her happiest years were those when she worked in Vancouver and Whistler, BC. She loved to travel, and crossed Canada, explored the western United States, travelled to Australia, Thailand and Mexico. The best was the trip to Lambeau Field with her sister Bev. She had many stories to tell, some of which scared us to death, and some that I am sure we never heard. She was not afraid of anything, and would not hesitate to talk to strangers. She was always willing to help others, no matter what.

She leaves behind her father George, mother Mary-Anne, brother Rob (Shannon, Nick and Quinn) and sister Bev (Paul). We will miss her forever, especially on football Sundays.

There will be a private gathering of family and friends at Cottonwood Community Centre, Sunday, October 22, 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

“Hold on to what you’ve got,

We’ve got each other, and that’s a lot”.

Condolence from Darren Coates on October 17th, 2017 9:59 pm

Hi Mary-Anne and George
My heart goes out to you. I remember Mel as a kind caring soul who was full of life and quick with a smile. The last time I saw her was at our 20 year grad re-union which I believe was 2008. She was full of joy and caring as her usual self from old.
Thinking of you and of Mel.

Oh Bev, I was devastated to hear of Mel’s passing. So many fun memories. My fondest were the times we all spent at Bailey’s during football season. My heart is absolutely broken for all of you. I will never forget her. Sending love from New Brunswick.

To the Smith family… So hard to see this… Melody was a bright light to me. She always made me feel that my presence was welcomed. She was always a joy to visit with, whether at a family gathering, or when I’d run into her when she was working. I felt like I could connect with her on those times we were together. I am going to miss her. I am so very sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love and hugs. Mo xo
