Arcadia Melnyk Obituary
Melnyk Arcadia Melnyk, 70, of Clintonville, died suddenly Monday, May 8, at OSU Medical Center. Born July 29, 1946 in Munich, Germany to Alexandra (Jezersky) and Konstantin Melnyk, her family immigrated to the United States in 1950 and lived in Cleveland until Arcadia was 18, then moved to Columbus where Arcadia attended OSU and graduated with a degree in linguistics. She was fluent in English, Ukrainian, and French. Arcadia was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved brother Rostyslav Melnyk. Survived by her husband of 39 years, Alan Landgraf; her children, Aleck (Beth) and Andrew (Karie); grandchild, Amelia; sister-in-law, Joy Melnyk; niece, Adriana (Walter) Brandt; and her extended Ukrainian family in Cleveland. Arcadia worked for Battelle as a translator and subsequently entered the new field of IT as a programmer for the Ohio Department of Education and OCLC. Arcadia later founded D&A Catering with her dear friend Dorothy Pimputkar. Arcadia often entertained and her famous parties frequently involved the international communities. She will be sadly missed by her lifelong friends in McJam, the Ukrainian Cultural Association of Ohio (of which she was president for many years), and the French group. Arcadia was a free spirit who embraced the adventure of travel and experiencing new cultures. Arcadia's wise counsel and delicious recipes were sought by her friends and family. They will miss her terribly. A memorial service will be held at the SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 North High Street, on Saturday, May 13 at 1 p.m., with viewing hours from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to contribute to Ukrainian Museum-Archives, Cleveland, OH (umacleveland.org) or Smoloskyp (PO Box 561 Ellicott City, MD 21041).
