Melissa GREENWAY

Melissa Anne Greenway passed away on May 29, 2014 after a courageous three year battle with breast cancer. Melissa was 37 years old. Melissa was born in Summerside, PEI on June 8, 1976 to proud parents Ted and Sandra Munn. In 1979 Melissa and her family moved to Greendale where she attended Greendale Elementary. Melissa later attended Sardis Secondary where she met her husband Mike. Melissa and Mike were married on August 24, 2002 and began a life together in Chilliwack. Melissa loved organizing themed parties and was always looking for a reason to bring family and friends together. In 2006 Melissa gave birth to her first child, Carter, and decided to quit work and stay at home to raise her family. In 2009 Melissa gave birth to her daughter, Ava. Melissa cherished the opportunity to stay home and raise her children and soon made friends with a group of “new moms” who over the years have proven to be her biggest supporters, admirers and “soul sisters”. Melissa loved to travel to sunny destinations and enjoyed the beaches of Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean at least once a year. In 2011 Melissa joined a running group and began training to run the Vancouver Sun Run. As her training progressed Melissa found a love for running and couldn’t wait to run in her next event. In 2011 Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer. Melissa was stubborn and determined to beat the disease at all costs. During her battle with cancer Melissa endured countless chemotherapy treatments, two rounds of radiation, surgeries, experimental treatments and dozens of MRI’s and tests, all with a smile on her face. Melissa’s smile is the trademark for which she is known and loved by all for. Melissa would be the first to ask others how their day was, while she was enduring physical pain or bearing the stress of pending test results. Melissa will be sadly missed by her loving husband Mike and their two beautiful children Carter and Ava. Melissa is survived by her mother Sandra and her big brother Jason. Melissa will be laid to rest beside her father Ted, who sadly passed away four weeks before Melissa. A celebration of life will be held on Friday June 20th, 2014 at 1:30PM at the Chilliwack Alliance Church located at 8700 Young Road, Chilliwack.
