12 thoughts on “SMOLENAARS Melita Marie

  1. Aunt Melita was a wonderful member of our family and I was sorry to hear of her passing. I was lucky to have had many visits with her and Uncle John on Hunters Mountain and she always made us feel very welcome in her home, sharing a meal and a slice of homemade pie.

  2. Sheila and I enjoyed, and cherish every visit we were able to have with Aunt Melita and Uncle John over the years. Always welcoming and generous. You did not leave without a memorable conversation, or exposure to a new idea or way of looking at something. Melita was strong, kind and a valued member of our extended family. We miss her.

  3. The world has lost a truly beautiful person, Inside and out. I will never forget the summer I spent with Aunt Melita, Uncle John and cousin Tamara. I was 12. We went to the drive in and watched Star Wars in the back of Uncle Johns “Jello” truck. We had adventures at Niagara Falls and Marine-land. When I became homesick Aunt Melita was there. She made me feel better. She could always make you feel special. Tamara, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you.❤️

    Aunt Melita, I somehow can’t imagine this world without you. You were a light to so many! While you no longer shine, your love, compassion and joy of life will carry on in all those that knew you!
    Thank you for always being so supportive, the many lovely cards, and for always being available for a chat. I will always remember the many times we just sat and visited. I will especially remember the times you told me I was beautiful, whether I looked nice, or not, and especially when I didn’t feel beautiful! I loved those moments with you! You were the best!
    All my love, Lauretta xo

    Dear Tamara and John, our sincere sympathy in the loss of your dear sweet mom! She was the bright light when she walked into the room! We loved her style, of wearing two different shoes or earrings or whatever she wanted! Only Melita could pull that off! She was a friend and always looked forward to her visiting us at the store! We could always count on her to buy something! She leaves an empty hole in our little village of Baddeck! All our love to you both! XO

    I met Melita through the Tai Chi club in Burlington. It turned out we lived in thee same neighbourhood. And from there a friendship started. Such an amazing woman; talented, intelligent and always an inspiring independent soul.
