LERCH – (nee Hibbard). Melanie Lisa, beloved wife of Alex Matthew Lerch of Calgary, passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour on Saturday, November 15, 1997 after a courageous battle with Hodgkin’s disease.

She is much loved and cherished and will be sadly missed by her mother and father, Marilyn and Allan Hibbard; and brothers, Bruce and Chris Hibbard; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Judy and Fritz Lerch; and sister-in-law Sherry Lerch.

A huge thank you also goes out to the superb doctors, nurses and support staff on NU 57 at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre who have shown such care. God knows what’s best in every situation and we are grateful that Melanie’s pain and suffering are over and that she has gone to her new eternal home with Jesus.
