Born Sept. 15, 1950, Melinda lived a life marked by her unwavering kindness, compassion and zest for life. She touched the lives of many with her warmth, generosity and gentle spirit. Melinda was a matriarch like no other, whose presence lit up the room and whose laughter was contagious. Throughout her journey, Melinda embraced life with resilience and optimism, facing challenges with grace and determination. She was known for her fierce dedication to her family, her intellectual curiosity, academic endeavors and her love of traveling. Her thirst for knowledge and exploration inspired those around her to delve deeper into the wonders of the world.

Born in Central California, Melinda lived in Canada during college before settling back into Southern California to start her family and career. She was an ardent supporter of both the arts and educational institutions, having spent most of her career at the University of California. Melinda lived in San Diego, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara before retiring in Ohio to live with her family.

Melinda’s legacy of love and generosity will continue to live on through her children, grandchildren, siblings and friends, who were the center of her world.
