July 18, 1985 - November 6, 2019. At the Great War Memorial Hospital, Perth Ontario, with great determination and courage. Daughter of Lesley (Surgenor) and Paul Melcher, sister to Kevin (Beverly Attfield), grand-daughter of G. William Melcher and the late Mary Geraldine (MacDonald), the late Dora (Kerrison) and the late Ronald James Surgenor. Sadly missed by many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. A dear friend to many, an avid reader and writer. Kerrison graduated from Ottawa U. and Algonquin College with degrees in Journalism and worked on newspapers from across Canada. She enjoyed numerous crafts (always with someone in mind), giving our dogs love & treats, swimming, shopping with her mom and experimenting with her family’s cuisine. Thank you for the kindness shown by those who treated and cared for Kerrison in Sharbot Lake, Ottawa and Perth; helping her mom keep her at home until a few days before her death. Cremation has occurred. A celebration of Kerrison’s life will occur on Sunday, December 1st 11am, at Soldiers Memorial Hall (Oso Hall) 1107 Garrett Street in Sharbot Lake followed by a light lunch. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Kerrison to your branch of the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by Kerrison’s family.
