It is with great sadness that the family of Zita M. (Myers) Melanson announces her passing which occurred on Friday, December 16, 2022, at the Carleton Kirk Lodge. Born in Saint John, NB on September 23, 1937, she was a daughter of the late Amiee and Doris (Maloney) Myers.
Our mother loved to travel, she loved her country music, and her favourite artist was Vern Gosdin. She enjoyed bingo in her early days, adored her children, grandchildren and Christmas was her favourite time of the year. She worked at the sugar refinery and the general hospital before retiring.
Zita is survived by her daughters, Susanne Melvin (Perry), Karen Albert (Yvon), Juanita York (Ron); son, Michael Thibodeau (Gloria); sister, Yvonne Patterson; brother, Raymond Myers; as well as several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. In addition to her parents, Zita was predeceased by her husband, Gerald Melanson, several brothers, sisters and her granddaughter, Erica Albert.
