In Memory of Melanie Gleason-Lemay

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Melanie Gleason-Lemay after a courageous battle with leukemia on January 16th, 2024, at the age of 45 years. She was surrounded by her cherished children, family, and friends as she took her last breath.

She leaves behind her three precious children who made up the entirety of her world, Brayden Gleason-Mondesir, Makayla Gleason-Lemay and Kimaley Bailey. She also leaves her sister Nathalie Perron (late Daniel Jolicoeur), and friends especially Carole Charron and Orville Bailey.

She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She also had many friends and was a well-loved member of the Orleans Bengal and Cumberland Panthers football community. She dedicated 18 years of her life working for the City of Ottawa.

The family will receive condolences on Sunday February 4th at 1pm at the Heritage Funeral Complex in Orléans, Ontario, followed by a 2 pm celebration of life.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada foundation would be appreciated.

In our dreams, until we meet again…

Your Hug Meant the World

Nobody else held me so tight

Or made me feel so right

No one’s eyes shined so bright with love

As my mom, who is now high above.

Brayden, Makayla and Kimaley, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. It is never easy losing a parent. Stick together and know, your mom loved you very much and was so proud of you. Never forget the good times, she will always be with you.
Melanie was a great woman, generous and kind. I will always remember when she used to drive me to school and finishing the kid’s lunches in the Tim Horton’s drive thru and at a red light. Good times.
