Sarah Melita  Barnes (Drakes)
Sarah Melita BARNES passed peacefully away at the Palliative Care Unit in Lewisporte on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.

She was predeceased by husband, Merrill; parents, Andrew Joseph & Elizabeth Drakes; sisters, Mary Jane, Ellen (Nellie); and brother, James (Jim).

Sarah Melita leaves to mourn special nieces, Myrtice Alpen and Brenda Drake; grand nephew, Marshall (Glenda) Godwin; grand niece, Brenda (Rick) Blagdon; special friend, Scott Rowsell; sister-in-law, Rita Drake; and a large number of nieces and nephews, and, a large circle of extended family & friends.

Melita lived in Coomb’s Cove for most of her life. As a young woman, she visited her sister and family in Belleoram where she made lasting friendships. She often travelled with Merrill to communities where he worked on construction contracts, living in Gaultois, Ramea and Harbour Breton. Melita was a dedicated member of Holy Trinity Church and a lifelong member of the ACW. For many years she and Merrill played on Dart Teams and she enjoyed playing cards. She was a gifted seamstress.

Melita moved to a Seniors Cottage in Harbour Breton in 2011. In 2015, when she could no longer manage on her own, she moved to Pleasantview Manor in Lewisporte where she continued to make friends and enjoy life. Melita always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile for everyone. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Special thanks to the staff of Pleasantview Manor & Palliative Care.
