There’s another angel in heaven….
Grace Melville went to join her beloved husband on February 13, 2021, the 67th anniversary of their wedding day. Grace was 89 years of age. She passed away peacefully with her son and daughter close by, fully aware of the love of these children.
Grace’s husband Wally passed away in January of 2020. Her eldest son Bruce passed away in 2015. She is survived by her younger sister Keitha (Leon Phillips) and her children Aleda (Roy Underwood), David (Sue) and Joan. She is also survived by her grandchildren Desiree, Bobby, Layla, Angela, and Shawn.
Before living in Kamloops, Grace & Wally spent 13 years in Salmon Arm where Grace had been transferred from Kitimat by BC Hydro. She thought she was in heaven after the long, cold, and dark winters in Kitimat. It was upon her retirement that she moved to Kamloops, where Wally had been working for Afton Mines and commuting on his days off. In her retirement years, Grace spent many hours gardening, sewing, researching the family tree and hostessing many summer parties in their backyard. Her happiest hours were spent taking care of her grandchildren Bobby and Desiree when they were young. Those two children were the highlight of Grace’s life and she had so much pride and joy from spending time with them.
David and Joan thank everyone for their kind condolences. Their mom was one of the kindest, gentlest, most gracious, and caring women in their lives and she will be greatly missed.
Her family gratefully acknowledges and gives thanks for the support and care of her loving nurses and care aids at Gemstone Care Centre.
Rest in peace mom and give Dad a hug for us.
Dave, very sorry to hear about your mom. My condolences to you and your family.
