Melanie’s work ethics started at a young age driving her father’s milk truck in New Britain and also delivering hay and corn.

She was also a Girl Scout Leader of Troop #150 where she mentored 16 girls that were in the sixth grade. In her spare time, she loved to cook and work in her garden. Melanie is survived by her son, Stanley Borysewicz Jr. and his wife Kellie of Southington, and by a daughter, Lorraine Seroczynski of Bristol.
