As the daughter of a funeral director, Melodie Richards was exposed to the funeral profession early in life. These seeds that were planted in her formative years left a lasting impression.
Melodie was on her way to explore a career in the airline industry when a series of events led her back to the original calling she was meant to pursue. They say, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life,” and Melodie is honoured to share her genuine compassion and graceful approach with every family for whom she cares. To Melodie, offering comfort and step-by-step guidance during the final phase of life is a privilege, and she knows firsthand the respect and dignity that is bestowed on a dearly departed loved one. She is grateful to work on our team.
Prior to becoming a licensed funeral director in 2016, Melodie volunteered at Langley Hospice. She lives in Fort Langley and is the mother of 4 beautiful children and a boxer puppy.
