Wauregan, CT – Melanie (Safford) Saran, 55, passed away after a chronic illness on Thursday January 9, 2020 at the Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam;

She is survived by three sons: Nicholas Bourque of Wauregan, Joshua Bourque of Danielson, and Skyler Saran of Wauregan; her mother Beverly Safford of Plainfield; her brother Marvin Safford of Plainfield; her sister Wendy Arther of Torrington, CT; and her grandchild Onna-Allyse Bourque.

Melanie was a loving and caring person who enjoyed life’s simple pleasures, such as spending precious time with her family on camping trips in the great outdoors where she would enjoy cooking for everyone over the open fire.  Melanie was always mindful of the needs of others, for many years she would make blankets and sweaters, donating them to local churches to help those less fortunate amongst us.

In memory of Melanie please do a random act of kindness; volunteer at a soup kitchen or shelter, visit an old friend or relative in a nursing home or hospital, or make a blanket, coat, or scarf and bring it to your local church or charitable organization just as Melanie did many times to offer help to someone in need.
