Melanie worked at Wendy's on Hwy 70 in Hickory where she was a very devoted worker. Even though she had no car, she walked approximately 5 miles from home to work, and then back everyday in all types of inclement weather.

She was devoted to working hard and helping her community to provide a good image for her two children. She loved them both dearly and pushed herself to do better for them.

Melanie was a Army Military Veteran, who completed her basic training in Virginia. She was a proud member of the AmVets Military Organization and helped with the homeless veterans, providing clothes, ware, furniture, toiletries, and whatever else it took. Her final resting place will be the Salisbury Military Cemetery.
