Melina, 95, from Saint John, NB passed away peacefully at the Loch Lomond Villa on Monday, April 25, 2022, in the loving arms of her children. She was born November 6, 1926, in St. Louis de Kent, NB. She was a daughter of the late Honore and Eleanore (Daigle) Landry.
She’ll be sorely missed by her son, Donald Gallant (Valerie Ricketts) of Winfield, BC; daughters, Jocelyn Gagnon (Albert) and Paulette Thibault (Leonard) of Saint John, NB; she was a loving nanna to Troy and Michelle Gallant, Tony, Krista and Paul Gagnon, Jessica and Laura Thibault; as well as 11 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Antoine in 2005 and daughter Gisele Gallant. She was the last survivor of her family’s generation and was predeceased by siblings, Evelyn, Eva and Lionel.
Melina was a hard worker, she always had a cup of tea for any visitors and a dish of treats for her grands when they’d dropped in. She was a knitter, a quilter and her family benefited from what she lovingly created.
Thank you to the staff of Elm House at the Loch Lomond Villa for their loving care to both mom and her daughters who frequently visited.
