Melody Ann Meadows

November 28, 1962 — March 25, 2023

Collierville, Tennessee

On Saturday,  March 25, 2023, Melody Ann Meadows, loving mother and partner, went to be united with the Lord at the age of sixty.

Melody’s career as a radio personality has made her a beloved figure in the Memphis community. Her passion for music and laughter have made her a beloved human to all who have known her. An inclination to help others led her to a role with Baptist Medical Group, where she was known as one hard-working and dependable lady.

Melody has always been a support system for her daughters and an outgoing, fearless friend.

After a brief but fatefully romantic glance in the hallway of the radio station, Melody and her heart, Kevin, reconnected three years ago and made each other happy every day since.

She was a lover of dancing, laughing, glam, and Frappuccinos.

Melody is survived by her daughters Elizabeth Ortego, Elaina Ortego Abone, and Chelsea Ortego; her mother Jo Ann Meadows; brother Ricky Meadows; sister Renee Barrios; and her partner Kevin Byrd.  She is preceded in death by her father Pete Marshall Meadows.

Funeral Services for Melody were held at 2:30 P.M. Sunday, April 2, 2023 at Germantown Church of Christ. A private interment was in Oakwood Cemetery at Brownsville.

Those honored to serve as pallbearers were Kevin Byrd, Benjamin Harris, Ryan Abone, Kade Gable, Justin Barrios and Shaun Barrios.

The family suggests a donation be directed to the West Cancer Foundation at westcancerfoundation.org .
