Obituary of Alice Marian Melendez
Alice Marian Melendez, nee O’Neill.
On July 23rd 2021, at 91 years of age Alice peacefully departed her earthly garden for Paradise. Born in Manchester England on May 3, 1930. She was preceded in death by her eldest son Carlos. She is survived by her loving husband of 71 years Carlos S. Melendez, six children; Michael, Rick (Teresa), Steven (Elke), Rebecca (Joe), Andrew and Thomas. Eleven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
Generous, kind, gracious and steadfast through life. Those who knew her and loved her enjoyed her quick wit and very British sense of humor. Alice was an avid reader, loved her garden and a fierce defender of human rights. She was by far the most loving mother and grandmother to all.
