MELODY ANNE CARLSON
August 9, 1967 - November 28, 2022
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Melody Anne, lovingly known as Melo, at the tender age of 55. She passed peacefully at the St. Boniface Palliative Care Unit after a long battle with cancer.
Melo is survived by her spouse of 22 years, Kevin Gressman, her siblings Donna (Mark Fillion), Jeff (Liz), niece Nicole (Harlynn May), as well as Kevin's siblings Becky Green, Stephen Gressman, niece and nephew Jacob and Paige Gressman, as well as Karla Berkson, loving friend and grandmother of Jacob and Paige.
Melo and Kevin received great support from many friends throughout the past few years, in particular Sue Heglin, Gerry Suzuki, Trevor Millar, Arlene Peacock (Larry Novadale), Yvonne Ducharme, Susanne Beaudry and many, many others. We'd love to offer them a sincere thank you, as well.
Melo had a committed and outstanding position within the University of Manitoba over the last 35 years, overcoming many obstacles and rising through the ranks to Supervisor within the Utility Caretaker Department.
Everyone who enjoyed spending time with Melo, knew she loved anything and everything Halloween, even so on Christmas;
As we'd love to celebrate her life on her favourite holiday, that is far too long for her loved ones to wait to honour such a cherished life, so please join us for a Celebration of Life at 603 Wellington Crescent (Unitarian Church), at 2:00 PM Friday, May 5, 2023; which falls on the Mexican holiday known as Cinco de Mayo, or please plant some marigolds this May long weekend in honour of Melo, and think of her every so often as they bloom into new life.
