Melanie was a member of Faith Baptist Church, she often attended church at Calvary Southern Baptist and New Life Church, she enjoyed going to gospel singings with her dad: Jimmy. To know Melanie then you knew she loved her family and loved giving them a hard time. Her babies were her world (Big Guy, Toogie, Braelee) she loved spoiling them one minute and tried giving them away the next (inside joke). Melanie was a loveable person who enjoyed life; always smiling and never met a stranger. She loved playing volleyball. She was a setter in her high school days at Sequoyah High School. She was a St. Louis Cardinals fan and enjoyed taking trips to watch a Cardinals game. She enjoyed watching her nieces and nephews at whatever sports they played. She always tried to go and support them every chance she got, cheering them on from the stands; if they could see and hear her, that was enough for them. They love their Aunt Melanie; she will be deeply missed.
