Melissa Ann (Bergseng) SchnellJune 7, 1964 ~ May 13, 2017 (age 52)
Melissa. A beautiful soul who cannot be described in one word. She was strong, loving, caring and so much more. Melissa was a wonderful friend, mom, step-mom and partner. She was a driven woman who loved working, even when she was in the hospital. Taking away her work computer was like taking candy away from a child. Melissa also enjoyed hiking with her dogs Harley and then Dodger; playing soccer, horseback riding and watching sports. As she said recently, the sound of Nascar was a sound of comfort. Melissa also loved riding on the back of Ray’s motorcycle with him. One of her favorite trips on the open road was to Reno, Nevada with her friends. She was that special someone who loved making her friends and family happy and would go miles out her way to comfort them. Melissa’s beautiful smile, as bright as sunshine, would light up a room. The strength Melissa had is indescribable. She always looked at life in a positive way. She had many loved ones in her life to keep the motivation going. Melissa is loved by all and will forever be missed.
