Melissa Danielle Dinesen

DINESEN, Melissa Danielle - June 21, 1969 – February 2, 2018 “Alis Volat Propriis” She walked in beauty and danced with grace into Jesus’ arms, regretfully not wearing her beloved stilettos; leaving behind her beloved children Keyrsten Noelle, Fallyne Gabrielle, Caleb John, and her grandchildren London Gabrielle and Blake Joshua. The first loved one to meet her at heaven’s gate would have been Mikey, her trusted canine companion of 13 years; a better keeper of confidences than her sister Angela Lynne, and her mother Valerie. Lorne, her earthly dad, has always provided gentle wisdom in scripture as the patriarch of this bunch. Melissa will be remembered as a ‘Queen Bee’ who flew on her own wings with God’s strength. She kept our ‘family hive’ well-filled with love and cosmetics; sharing these gifts generously, to the delight of her nieces Amanda Marie, Kelsey Jane, and Olivia Danielle. She was also the doting and playful aunt of Fin Andrew Lorne. The family is grateful for the love she shared with Andrew Nagy. Cancer robbed her of many things but not her wit and keen sense of humour. Her family and friends will celebrate her unique, wonderful, and beautiful Christ-filled life. A Celebration of Melissa’s Life will commence at 3 p.m. on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 at St. John’s Anglican Church (99 Brock Street). In lieu of flowers, the family is grateful for donations to Lorne Dinesen. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the NISBETT FUNERAL HOME . 705-745-3211. 13251175

We are greatly saddened by Melissa's passing so soon in life--but God must have needed her for a greater purpose. Love radiated from her to those around her. We will always remember her spontaneity, helpfulness to others, and her signature 'laugh'.
