Mercedes “Mercy” Meliton passed away at the age of 72 on January 2nd, 2021. She was the 5th of 12 children, of the late Attys Galo and Aurora Meliton.Mercy was a nurse who dedicated her career at St Joseph’s Hospital in Toronto. She had a heart of gold. She was sweet, kind, and loving. She devoted her life to her family and friends, always putting them first before herself.Mercy had a smile that lit up a room; her laugh was one of a kind. She was incredibly gregarious and popular. No doubt, she was the life of the party. She loved organizing social gatherings with an abundance of food, always ensuring her guests were well-fed and had plenty of leftovers to take home! Mercy was also fond of singing and music - Patsy Kline, Judy Garland, and The Beatles, were among her favourites.Mercy will be dearly missed by many. She may be gone, but her memory will continue to live in our hearts. “Someday I’ll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me.  Where trouble melts like lemon drops, high above the chimney top, that’s where you’ll find me” – from Somewhere Over the Rainbow, sung by Judy Garland   Due to the current pandemic restrictions and under direction from our regulator, the Bereavement Authority of Ontario, effective November 23, 2020 all funerals and visitations will be by invitation only to limit the number of people in attendance and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Melinda J. Cudanin
To the Meliton Family, My name is Melinda Cudanin. I met Mercy’s mother, Aurora first, back in 1997, as a new Social Worker at Parkdale. Specifically, 20 West Lodge. The past 20 years, Ate Mercy was a frequent attendee of our seniors congregate dining until recently. She started to not attend, not fully knowing she was battling with health issues. Your family is acquainted with my Uncle “Sonny” Ariel Talangbayan over the years. (Cousin of my mother, Enoni Valadollid Talangbayan Cudanin. Mercy was larger than life here at the Parkdale Community. She will be remembered for her laughter and generosity. I pray she didn’t suffer. RIP, Ate Mercy.
