It is with overwhelming sadness we announce the passing of Margaret “Melissa” Hill on September 5, 2015 at Comox Valley Hospice from cancer. Melissa was born in Vernon, BC on November 8,1949 to Margaret and Harold Hill.
Melissa will be forever missed by her daughters Carmen (Steve) Kincaid of Port Alberni and Kimberley (Roland) Grahame of Shawnigan Lake. Melissa had unending love for her grandchildren Kody, Katey, James and Anthony. Her sister Melinda (Glen) Childs was her best friend. Melissa loved her niece Cyrena (Shane) Dolan and their son Conner, nephew Seann (Michelle) Childs and their daughter Elina. Melissa cherished her extended family and many dear friends. Melissa worked for BC Ferries on the Little River to Powell River route for 23 years. Melissa has touched so many people’s lives. It was a great honour and joy to know and love her. We know she is now at rest and pain free in Heaven. With every dragonfly we see, we will always say, “Hello Mom, Nana, Melissa.” We Love and Miss You.
