Melanie Craig

On Saturday, October 10, 2020 Melanie Ann Craig (nee Murray), passed away peacefully at the Hanover & District Hospital while surrounded by family after a sudden and unexpected stroke. She was 72.

Melanie was born on September 3, 1948 in Gravenhurst, Ontario to the late Dr. John and Ethel (nee Laycox) Murray. Throughout her career as a teacher she touched the lives of many students and she made a lasting impression on a countless number of other people throughout her life. She always saw the good in others and she treated everyone with great respect. Above all, she had an extraordinary sense of compassion, love and generosity that had no boundaries. 

One of her greatest joys in life was being a Nana to Jack, Hannah and Matthew. She adored them! In addition to being an amazing Nana she will also be remembered by many for her endless devotion to her husband, children, friends and community. For her family, countless memories, too many to mention, will forever be etched in our hearts.

Survived by her devoted sons Ryan (Chrissy) Craig of Walkerton and Michael (Rachel) Craig of Toronto and her precious grandchildren Jack Daniel Craig, Hannah Marie Elloise Craig and Matthew Ryan Daniel Craig.Loving sister of Suzanne (Dennis) Paradis of Newmarket.  Predeceased by her beloved true love Daniel "Danny" Craig (2014).
