MELONEY SANCHEZ, age 60, a resident of Lyden, went with our Lord on Saturday, July 11, 2020 after a lengthy illness. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Randy and Shawn Warrick; her parents, Ronald D. and Mary Ellen Warrick; and her son, Juan DeJesus Sanchez.

Meloney loved her family beyond words, especially her grandchildren. She had a heart of gold when it came to her family and friends. She was a devout Catholic and enjoyed being extremely active with her church. She cherished all her confirmation students and loved them as if they were her own children. Meloney was dedicated to helping others, whether it was wanting others to better their health and well-being while she worked as an office manger for Espanola Family Chiropractic or by being a grief counselor with the hospitals making herself available day or night to help families to deal with the loss of their children, specifically, but not limited to babies who passed due to SIDs. Meloney’s passing leaves a huge void in many people’s lives and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
