Born on January 18, 1955 to the late Gerald Lynn Shaw and Sue Moyer Shaw, Melany made Delaware her home for over 40 years.  A wonderful friend and dedicated mother, Melany enjoyed watching football on weekends, rooting for the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday and the Chicago bears on Sunday.  As a home health care worker, Melany was known for her dedication to and love of her patients.  She was generous and affectionate.  Her grandchildren, whom she considered one of her greatest accomplishments, held a special place in her heart.  Melany was also a member of the AmVets post # 103 for over 30 years.

In addition to her parents, Melany Shaw was preceded in death by her brother, Rusty Shaw and her sister Joyce Collier.

Melany leaves behind one son, Derrick Wilson, of Delaware and three grandchildren: Makalah Roberts, Derrick Buford, both of Delaware and Erin McElroy of Richwood, OH.
