Melinda Joy Snavely
November 19, 1982 – April 1, 2021
With great sorrow I report that Melinda Joy Snavely, first born daughter of John and the late Jackie Snavely, passed away in her sleep on April 1, 2021. She was 38 years old, too young.
Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she was a graduate of Cypress Falls High School, and went on to become a Texas certified Massage Therapist after graduating from the Texas Center For Massage Therapy in Houston.
Melinda struggled with Bipolar disorder (and the many complications the disorder creates). Because of this, she was not in good health. When she did feel well, she enjoyed preparing delicious food, listening to music, gaming, watching movies, spending time with family, and doing anything that made her laugh.
Melinda was a devoted single mother, leaving behind her loving son, Jeramiah, her surviving father, John, and two younger sisters, Tiffany and Michelle. Her mother Jackie had previously passed away following a battle with lymphoma in 2010. They are both greatly missed, but we take comfort in the knowledge that they are both with the Lord, and we will all have a grand reunion in the future.
