It is with profound sadness we announce the death of Melanie (Mel) Ewing, who lost her lengthy and courageous battle with mental illness on Sunday, November 11, 2007 in Calgary, at the age of 28 years.
Mel was a kind-hearted person with a witty sense of humour and a radiant smile. She loved music and animals. These words by Ralph Waldo Emerson may best describe Mel’s philosophy of life, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Mel leaves to mourn her parents Helen Ewing and Robin Reesal; her grandmother, Violet Ewing; her uncles and aunt, Chris and Wendy Ewing and Mark Bennett; her cousins, Alexis, Eliza, and Duncan; special friends, Giselle and Val; and many other supportive family members and friends. She was predeceased by her grandfather, Gerald Ewing in 2007 and her aunt, Gillian Ewing in 2005.
There will be no formal service. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice. The family would like to thank Dr. Susan Kinnie, her staff, and the many healthcare professionals who provided Mel with years of support and kindness.
