‘Love Only…’

February 4, 1976 to May 3, 2016

Sadly this notice is to announce the sudden passing of Melissa Ann Johnson, aged 40. There will be a BBQ to celebrate her life on Sunday May 22, 2016 at the Kin Coulee Toboggan Hill from 1-3pm Melissa was a loving and doting mother to Tavia Hannay-Johnson (aged 9). She will be missed and fondly remembered for her spunk, generosity and good natured attitude. Melissa was a strong, independent woman who blossomed into an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. Melissa was predeceased by her mother Elaine Ann Johnson (1993), and father figure Ron Duke (2005) and both maternal and paternal grandparents. She is survived by her daughter Tavia Hannay-Johnson, Darryn Hannay, Wanda Duke, Ronnie Duke (Jamie & Olivia), Guy Duke (Gaylene, Josh & Julia), Herb Johnson, Sonia Kiriakova and her siblings Pamela Johnson (Brody), Damien Johnson (Junie, Ria & Sydney), Nygle Johnson and Ambrosia Johnson; and numerous aunts uncles and cousins. She will be missed by all of those who had the opportunity to know and love her.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

Rest in peace Melissa. God bless.

    My sista LaLa
    We were supposed to grow old together and watch our kids have kids, and laugh until we cried, forever.

    Try as they will, they can take away our pictures, texts and emails, but nobody will ever be able to take the memories that we made and shared. We know what we shared and nobody can take that away.

    You took care of me our whole lives. You told me when I was wrong. You told me when I was right. You had my back amd protected me unconditionally. And most importantly, you believed in me.

    As we got older you were living in the ‘now’ and I was always preparing for the future. I thought I was teaching you something, but now that you’re gone, I realize that I’m still learning lessons from you.

    I will never stop loving and protecting you.

    I will get old without you. I will watch our kids grow and live and develop their own families. And I will continue to laugh. I will choose to live in the ‘now’

    You made an impact on my life.
    You saved me, from me, a million times.

    And I will remember you, with love only.
    Unconditional and forever.
