She was always such a sweet person in school. She said then she was going to be a nurse as she genuinely cared about people. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and many friends. I know she touched many lives.

Meredith, your mother was a sweet lady. I have fond memories of the times that you and Natalie spent together in elementary school. We enjoyed those years with your mom and dad. May you and your family find strength and peace in the loving comfort of Jesus.

Melinda had a kind heart, although she didn't like to admit it. I worked with Melinda for several years. I appreciated the patience she exhibited and the knowledge she shared when I was new to her department. Most importantly, I will always remember the kindness she showed to me and my family during a difficult time in our lives.

May peace and comfort bless Melinda’s family at this difficult time.
I remember Melinda as a new nurse at Parkridge and later as a member of our management team.
She was very dedicated loyal employee.
She is gone too soon. Many patients and co workers were blessed to know Melinda.
Love from former Supervisor at Parkridge from 1974-1996.
