Sister Paulette (Agnes) Mellon, CSJ

August 28, 1930 — June 8, 2024

London

The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada is saddened to announce the peaceful death of Sister Paulette Mellon in the care centre at the residence of the Sisters of St Joseph, 485 Windermere Road, London Ontario, on Saturday, June 8, 2024.

Sister Paulette, or Agnes as she was known to her family, was born on August 28, 1930, in London, and entered the community of the Sisters of St. Joseph on January 3, 1954, at Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse.  She is remembered with affection by her CSJ Sisters, her sister Helen Molloy, and several nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by her parents Blanche (Summers) and Thomas Mellon, brothers Charles, Donald, and Rev. Patrick Mellon, and sisters Rosemary Slater, Joan, and Blanche Mellon.  


Sister Paulette began her ministry in education as a teacher in London and Sarnia and later became principal in Windsor where she remained for 33 years. Paulette enjoyed interacting with students and their families. Her commitment to the teaching profession formed a lasting impression on other educators. In 1995, she was awarded Teacher of the Year for Ontario, having been nominated by the entire school community. Upon retiring from education, Sister Paulette, practiced child and family counselling in Windsor for twenty years.  


Into her nineties, she remained actively engaged in life, covering receptionist duties, creating short stories on her iPad, and performing her magic tricks. She continued to follow politics and her favorite sports teams.  It’s no secret that over the years, Sister Paulette derived pleasure and comfort from her canine companion Riley.   Her practical yet creative spirit, enjoyment of life, and others will be missed.


All services will be held at the Sisters of St. Joseph Residence, 485 Windermere Road, London, ON.  Visitation, Tuesday, June 11th from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm and from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm with a vigil service at 6:30 pm.  Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, June 12th at 11:00 am.  Interment at St. Peter’s Cemetery, London, ON.
