On January 31, 2022 Lydia Melnychuk went to meet her Lord and Savior, a blessing for her but a deep and sorrowful loss for all of us.
Lydia was born on February 3, 1933 in Brosseau, Alberta as part of a large family of 15 children. She married the love of her life John in 1955 and had two lovely girls. They had both hard times and good times but she always found her strength and her rest in the Lord. Family was everything to her, she cared for and prayed for all the family. She has now joined the family that has gone before and we know that she continues to watch over the family still here. She will be missed.
She is survived by John, her loving husband of 66 years, daughters Wendi (George) and Marlene, grandchildren Taryn (Lyndsay), Joshua (Jennifer), great-grandchildren Anna, Caleb, and Jonathan, and her brothers and sisters Olga (Oliver), Paul, twin Peter (Evelyn), Victor (Francis), Victoria, and Micah (Elsie).
