Dr. Melissa Ann Hynes was born on February 10th 1969 and left us on 1 July 2011. She was a graduate of the University of Maryland and received a medical degree from George Washington University. She was a practicing physician at Family Practice in Juneau for the past four years. She truly loved her patients and the people of Juneau. She was a cancer survivor and a truly loving soul who will be missed by many. She touched many lives with her kind caring personality and always put others ahead of herself. She was married to Robert Hynes for many years and will be missed by him more than she will ever know. Sometimes life is unfair and takes those we care for the most. She was loved deeply and will be missed by many. She is survived by her brother John and her mother and father Susan and Michael. Remember her in your heart. A public memorial service will be announced in the near future.
