Our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend, Melanie Kay
Molloy, left this world far too soon on March 11, 2019. Born in
Prescott, Arizona, on June 16, 1987, to Duncan and Mary-Lou Molloy,
Melanie grew up in Prescott Valley.

She graduated from Bradshaw Mountain High School in 2005 and earned
her Associate of Arts degree and Pharmacy Tech Certification at
Yavapai College before finding her way to Portland, Maine. She
returned to Arizona in 2016 but left a piece of her heart back east.
She dreamed of returning one day.

Mel could light up any room with her stunning smile, contagious
laughter, and striking blue eyes. She loved live music, the
Diamondbacks, drawing, hiking, cold beer, and Maine, but most of all
she loved her family and her friends fiercely. Her kind heart, fiery
spirit, and gentle presence enchanted all who met her. She touched so
many lives in the short time this world was blessed to have her in
it, and it will never be the same.

Mel would not want us to grieve so deeply, but to think of her fondly
and to remember that life is precious. Take chances, live life to the
fullest, and always tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Never take anything for granted.

Mel was preceded in death by her grandparents, Doug and Jacque
Molloy, and Frank and Lillian Krause; and her uncle, Frank Krause;
and her aunt, Carole Krause.

She leaves behind her parents, Duncan and Mary-Lou; sister, Jami, and
brother-in-law, Mike; nephews, Skyler, Jett and Sebastian; aunts,
uncles, cousins and so many friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 7,
at the Pinetop Ramada at Goldwater Lake. Wear your baseball tees and
band shirts and join us for a “Mel-abration” to honor her radiant
