Creasey, Melanie Thomas

Melanie Lynn “Thomas” Creasey, 45, was born to Fred & Barbara Thomas on May 6, 1973 in Pulaski, VA. She fell asleep in death on Monday, November 19, 2018.

Melanie is survived by her husband of 27 years, Darrell (Roanoke, Va). Her maternal grandmother: Marie Forscutt (Jonesville, Nc). Her parents: Fred & Barbara (Floyd, Va). Siblings: Diana (Kris) Basham and Matthew (Jessica) both of Floyd, Va. Joy (Adam) Toney and Corinna (Rex) Ferguson both of Hendersonville, Nc. Andrew (Karen) of Pulaski, Va. As well as a multitude of Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, Nieces, Nephews and special friends.

At the young age of 27, Melanie was diagnosed, and began her fight, with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Melanie was known to be a loving, caring, happy, positive person. Many who went to encourage her over the years often left feeling that she was the one that encouraged them. Even though her disease has taken many things from her over the years it couldn’t take her passion for life.

Over the past 18 years Darrell has dedicated his life to keeping Melanie as comfortable and happy as possible. She truly enjoyed their time together. He did all he could to make her smile and laugh.

What a comfort to know that the hope Melanie had was in Jehovah, a God who yearns to bring his loyal ones, like Melanie, back to life. We find reassurance in the he words of Job whom said, “You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” (Job 14:15).

There will be a memorial service held on Sunday, November 25th at 4:30 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 3626 Cove Road, Roanoke, VA 24017
