This fund was established in loving memory of Melody Matte
January 11, 1983 – December 4, 2011.
Melody was taken from us abruptly after a brave fight against an aggressive lung cancer. Throughout her life, Melody set an example of how we might live. She was an exquisite person inside and out. She set high standards for herself, yet was dedicated to understanding and supporting others.
Melody’s sister Yael was her rock. When confronted with cancer she chose to be with Yael, Patrick, and little Noah. While her devoted friends and extended family reinforced her, Yael, Patrick, and Noah filled her last days with love, joy, caring, and laughter. In her illness Melody’s loved ones returned the kindness she had offered so readily to others throughout her life.
Our little china doll passed away knowing she was adored and appreciated by the very many individuals whose lives she brightened.
