E. Kingston, NH - Barbara "Bobbie" Melanson, 79, of East Kingston, N.H., passed away on Saturday, November 2, in her home after a three year battle with pancreatic cancer.
A loving mother, Bobbie was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends. She was quiet and sweet and very hospitable. Anyone who knew her will attest to the fact that she offered a meal to anyone who walked through the door. She also had an amazing green thumb and was passionate about her flower gardens. She could be found outside taking care of her gardens even when she was sick.
Bobbie is survived by her husband John of 58 years; her brother Donald and sisters Shirley and Beverly; three children, John Jr., Paula Histed (Gary), Kenneth (Shelley); five grandchildren, Jessica, Tyler, Christina, Mary and Lauren; and one great grandchild, Lillian. Taking care of her great grandchild Lilly was undoubtedly one of the greatest pleasures of her life.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Merrimack Valley Hospice.
A funeral service for "Bobbie" will be held this Thursday, Nov. 7, at 10 a.m. in the All Saints Church, 67 Friend St., in Amesbury, Mass. All are welcome. Arrangements are by the E.V. Jutras & Sons Funeral Home in Amesbury.
