We regret to announce the sudden passing in Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 of Melissa Holly Otsig at the age of 40 years. Melissa grew up in Revelstoke. In 2000 she moved to Vernon, studied to become a Care Aide, and worked at Heron Grove for the past few years. She was so full of life and brought so much joy to everyone she encountered. Melissa had a real passion for caring for people and loved what she did. She loved flowers, unicorns, angels, butterflies and anything shiny and sparkly. Melissa had incredible hand writing skills and a passion for writing poetry.
She is survived by her loving children, Destiny and Jaden, both of Vernon; her loving companion, Adam, of Vernon; two brothers, Mike (Cassandra) of Revelstoke, and Brad of Vernon; nieces, Tiffany, Rebecca, Morgan, and Emma; numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and many friends. Melissa was predeceased by her parents, Roger and Lorraine Otsig.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Melissa may do so to a trust fund for her children. They may deposit to TD Canada Trust Branch # 9360 Account # 6267825. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to PLEASANT VALLEY DIGNITY FUNERAL HOME (250) 542-4333.
