Melanie Carole Ruth Webb

Our Dear Father God in HIS Mercy put Melanie (after almost 15 months since she had her first paralyzing stroke, the second big stroke rendered her completely helpless) to sleep on 1-18-18. She is waiting for the sound of the Trumpet when the dead in Christ shall rise in immortal new bodies, and meet Jesus in the air, HE will take her to heaven to the home prepared for her.

Melanie was loaned to her Dad and Mom, Roger Willian (Billy) & Nancy Laumbach Johnson to raise for HIM, as the answer to her great-grandmother Julianita Perea's prayers, on March 4th, 1960. She was a joy to her grandparents Daniel & Juanita Laumbach too, being their first grandchild. As she grew, she helped in her grandparents businesses, Dan's Frozen Dipper and Dan's Full Service Shamrock Gas Station located on Highway 47 just north of the Y in Valencia.

Melanie graduated from Valley High School in 1978. She was active in many a school club. She attended TVI and worked as a Unit Secretary on 5th floor at Presbyterian Hospital, a job she enjoyed, but decided to be a stay at home mom.

She loved her family. She will be missed by: husband, George; daughter, Kehaulani Elizabeth Francine; mom, Nancy Ruth Boyd; sister, Stephanie Lillian Julie St. Dic; brothers, Roger William II and Rodney Joseph Johnson (wife Jaein); and nieces, Nancy Landza Palmer (husband Roger), and Sonnet Juliet Johnson.

Melanie learned to crochet and knit at an early age, from book learning. She made many, many beautiful crocheted afghans and dresses for babies and toddlers, also many knitted afghans. Her very favorite was knitting socks for her husband, daughter and mom! God blessed her with a great many gifts and as she used them, they grew! She wrote a note in a card to her mom years ago: no matter how bad life gets, I know you will always be there to love and watch over your little children as God would have wanted. Someday I hope to visit you in heaven and we can walk and talk together. Love, Melanie. Happy Birthday!

No more tears, no more nursing home existence, no more sadness, only happiness free from pain and misery!

No service planned as Melanie wished!
