Melissa Dawn Melton was unexpectedly taken from us on February 7, 2022. Her bright smile, gentle nature, and fun-loving personality were uplifting to all who knew her. She personified that beauty can equally be both inside and outside. Melissa was an avid lover of all animals. Her 3 dogs and 5 parrots were truly her children, her unwavering love and care of them further showed the heart and compassion that was her soul. She liked to travel, especially when it involved beaches or roller coasters. Her mother Jo Ann feels the same, so they would try to annually have a fun filled vacation together. She thoroughly enjoyed cooking and was always looking for new recipes to try. That she was such a good cook meant that whatever new recipe she found, it most always would be a meal with plates cleaned. Even her routine day to day would often be the source of cherished memories for those fortunate to have been part of them. She leaves behind her husband David with a wealth of memories of a wonderful life together over the last 30 years. We wish her Godspeed knowing that where she is now is a much brighter place because she is in it.
Melissa was preceded in death by her father, Jackie Dale Blevins. She is survived by her husband, David Melton; mother, Jo Ann Baker; stepfather, Kirkpatrick P. Baker; stepbrothers, Michael Baker (Linda) and Kirk Andrew Baker; stepsister, Annette San Pietro (Mark).
