After graduating from Katy High School and becoming a single mother at 18, Melinda went on to earn her Bachelors of Science Nursing degree from Prairie View A&M University after only three years. She worked in the nursing profession for 30 years until her transition from life.

Above all else, Melinda was a loving mother, wife, sister, caregiver, loyal friend, and all-around kind person. She treated everyone equally and had a warm and gentle spirit. Melinda’s smile was one you couldn’t forget and to know her created a friendship that lasted decades.
