Donna Jean Melville

Reno, NV - Donna passed away after a long health battle on July 2, 2018, at the age of 79 years old. She was a native of Monterey County born on March 31, 1939. She resided in Prunedale, CA for 28 years where she raised 4 children and 7 grandchildren. For her retirement, she and her husband moved to Magalia, CA where they enjoyed the peace of the mountains and lakes for many years until she later moved to Reno, NV to be closer to family.

She was a very tenacious woman as she battled cancer in her later years and won. Donna was always very young at heart and planned a long awaited trip to Disneyland with her family at age 74 where she rode every ride she possibly could. She was the master planner of many family camping trips in her younger years that left many good memories for her family. She enjoyed gardening, decorating her home, trips to the local casinos to gamble, boating on Lake Oroville, spoiling her grandchildren and most recently her first great grandchild.

She is survived by her Son Chris Melville, Reno, Daughters Cyndee Piini, Salinas & Jennifer Melville, Washoe Valley and Grandchildren, Michael Melville, Ashley Piini, Melissa Piini, Kiley Piini, Melanie Rodriguez, Megan McCrossin, Aiden McCrossin and most recently a great grandchild Ryder Dutra.

She is proceeded in death by her husband Hugh Melville and son Rick Melville.

The family will be holding a private Ceremony at a later date where her ashes will be laid to rest at El Carmelo Cemetery in Pacific Grove, CA.
