Janet Jane Melick, 84, died on Monday, July 3, 2017, at Rocky Mountain Assisted Living in Centennial, where she was welcomed as one of the Golden Girls of Glencoe Avenue.
She was born on Sept. 26, 1932, in High Bridge, Iowa, to Carl Prentiss Brown and Catherine Helen (Stanish) Brown. She moved with her family to Colorado at the age of 5 and graduated from Erie High School in 1950, where she played basketball and was on the cheerleading squad. On Feb. 13, 1953, she married her high school sweetheart, Steve John Melick of Frederick.
Janet worked for a number of years as a principal buyer with Rocky Flats and Neo Data, and also in food service at Erie High School. As an active member of her community, Mrs. Melick had served as president of the PTA and attended St. Scholastica Catholic Church.
