Melanie was born in Saskatoon Sask. to Clifford and Marion Cave. At 2 years old her family moved to Southern B.C. Melanie did most of her schooling in Burnaby, until grade 12 when they moved to Moose Heights in Quesnel.
I couldn’t believe my good fortune to have a gorgeous 17 year old move in next door. I was lucky enough to marry that girl and we spent 42 years as best friends. We were blessed with two beautiful daughters Laurel and Amber. Later we welcomed three grandchildren; Nicholas, Jalen and Annika. Melanie touched so many hearts; her family, friends, and throughout her career at Save On Foods, that includes all of her co-workers and countless customers over her 22 years there. The loss we feel is immeasurable and there will always be an ache in our hearts, but knowing she was loved by so many people will, hopefully, somewhat ease the pain. She will be missed by all that knew her.
There are so many people we would like to thank for their outpouring of love and support, it is mind boggling! To my sisters Colleen and Debbie for their amazing work helping me, to Cole Petersen for all his help and outstanding Eulogy, all of our families and friends, Dr. Dorothy Craig, Dr. Gerald McFeteridge, Dr. Michelle Evans and her entire staff at Ambulatory Care, all of the staff at G.R. Baker Memorial, to the Dunrovin staff and the Palliative Care staff at the Hospice House, OMG! Words alone are not enough to express our gratitude for the care Melanie received while there. To Save On Foods, Arrow Transport, The Kotzer family and kitchen staff at the Billy Barker, thank you for all you have done. To the countless people that have sent food, flowers, made donations in Melanie’s honour and support of all kinds, you know who you are, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.
Joe, Laurel, (Shane) Amber, (Cole), Nicholas (Colleen), Jalen,
Annika and the entire Mighton and Cave families.
