Melody Weisbrich (Morrison)

December 12, 1956 - February 14, 2017

Tribute

Melody Weisbrich (nee Morrison) unexpectedly passed away on February 14, 2017 in Silverton B.C. “Mel” as she was affectionately known by friends and family was a loveable force of nature. She expressed her love to her friends and family unabashedly and unconditionally. She was a sensitive soul who loved to give of herself in so many ways. Born in Trail and spending her early years in Silverton, she felt very connected to the Slocan Valley and could never be away from it for long. She worked and played in the valley most of her life. Going to the beach, visiting friends, working and golfing at the Slocan Lake Golf Course, creating wonderful meals alongside her Mom at Jack Harvey’s Restaurant in Silverton– all of these are recent snap shots of Melody. There are so many more. Melody started her schooling in Silverton; her Grade One teacher was in fact her grandmother, Lois Lind. As the family moved from place to place around the Province, Melody made many friends in Nakusp, Kitimat, Golden, Nelson and Castlegar. Melody was trained in both early childhood education, and as a chef, and utilized both of these skills throughout her working career: she was employed as a cook, chef, special needs worker, entrepreneur, property management tenant specialist and administrator during her working life. Melody is predeceased by her mother, Rita Morrison, and by her husband, Karl Weisbrich. Grieving the loss of Mel are her father Barry Morrison, brothers Michael Morrison (Colleen) and Ritchie Morrison (Ann), her uncle Alan Lind and nephews Kirk and Quinn Morrison. Melody had a special connection with animals including her two dear cats JJ and Wally. In lieu of flowers and as an expression of sympathy, donations to your local branch of the SPCA in Melody’s name are greatly appreciated. A celebration of Melody’s life will be held at Silverton Memorial Hall on Saturday, May 20th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

I’m very sorry to hear of Mel’s passing. I was lucky enough to work with her over the summer of ’98 or ’99 at the golf club in New Denver. She had endless energy and patience, making my shifts at Ladies’ Night fun and full of friendship. I’m sure people are still raving about her chocolate cream pie (her mother’s home recipe)!
Rest in peace, dear Melody, while the angels sing your praises.
My condolences to her family,
