Mele, our beloved daughter, sister, and cousin has peacefully and quietly departed this life to return to her Father in Heaven.
Mele graduated from Timpview High School. She was a dedicated LDS member and attended seminary. Mele died while actively serving as a member of the "Rising Stars", a program she loved.
