Melda Marson

February 14, 1925 — September 12, 2023



Melda (Morgan) Marson passed away peacefully at Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, Orillia, on September 12, 2023.

Melda was born on February 14, 1925, in Llanelli, Wales, U.K. She was predeceased by Graham (2018), her devoted husband of 72 years, and by their loving son Christopher (2002).

Mum will be deeply missed by daughters Siân Minich (Ed) of Oakville, Fiona King (Bernie) of Corbyville, and Melanie Blodgett (David) of Haliburton, and daughter-in-law Betty Marson of Fergus.

Nana was cherished by her grandchildren Peter Marson, David Marson (Brooke), Steve Marson (Jey), Mike Marson (Amanda), Andy Minich (Pearl), Matthew Minich (Aileen), Lesley Dagenais (Marcus), Evan King (Gina), Kaitlyn Greaves (Brian), and Gordon Blodgett (Shanna). “SuperNana” was also adored by 19 great-grandchildren.

Prior to their move to Orillia, Melda and Graham lived in Ancaster for many years. Mum enjoyed an active life of golf, bridge (her last game was a mere three weeks ago!), volunteering, Snow Bunnies, and gardening. She especially loved her times at their cottage in Haliburton, “Nefoedd” (Welsh for “Heaven”.)

Mum wanted to express a special thank you to the wonderful staff at Leacock Retirement Lodge, where she resided for the last four years.

Friends are welcome to join us for Mum’s service at St. James’ Anglican Church, Orillia, on Friday, September 22 at 11 a.m.  Messages of condolence are welcomed at
