Melody passed away May 5 th , 2023 after a brief illness at RPH. Melody was born June 6 th , 1964
at Tioga General Hospital, Waverly, NY to Robert and Janey Douglas. She graduated
from SRU High School and after graduation went on to work for the Athens Area

and great nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her lifelong friend Gary Chapin
and his children Bill (Kimberley) Chapin, Teresa Chapin Drucker, and Patti Chapin.
She is predeceased by her father Robert in 2005, and brother Eric Douglas just a short

Melody loved Disney, and Pixar, her most recent favorite was the Minions. She always
made sure to spoil all the little kids in the family and made sure that they always had
their favorite character toys to play with on holidays or birthdays. Melody was more
than just an aunt to her nieces and nephews, she was like another parent or
grandparent to everyone. She was a confidant, a person that you could always count
on, a person that you could always laugh with. She had the most infectious laugh. She
was a master at the claw machine, she learned from her dad. Any time that she would
play the game, she would always win something for the kids. Melody will be missed

There will be a celebration of life and burial at the discretion of the family.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of The Thomas Cremation and Funeral Service, 1297 Elmira St., Sayre, Pa.
