Melissa met her future husband, Danny in Odessa, TX. They were married on August 1, 1987 and were married for 33 ½ years. They later moved to Midland, TX.

To those who knew her, words such as selfless, kind, caring, loving, giving, beautiful, gentle are just some of the words used to describe the kind of person she was. She was always putting others first. She was a very precious gift from God.
