MELVIN, Margaret Eleanor (nee Colbert). It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear 96 year old mother and grandmother Marg Melvin of Bauline, Southern Shore. Marg was the sweetest, kindest, nicest and most considerate person anyone could ever meet.

Leaving behind with a lifetime of happy memories are her daughter Phyllis (Ken) Chidley, son Robbie (Glenda) Melvin and her grandchildren, Jessica, Robert, Michael and Jillian, as well as her dear older sister Rose Slaney, and her many nieces, nephews and friends.
We would like to extend a special thank you to the health care workers at St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital who were very kind to mom over the past many weeks, as well as to her home care family, Juana, Daphne, and Jackie.
