Melissa “Missy” Dunlap Salyer

February 25, 1959 ‒ December 21, 2016

Delaware, Ohio

On December 21st, surrounded by family, Melissa “Missy” Salyer passed away at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus.

Missy was born February 25, 1959 in Akron, Ohio to the late William and Phylis Dunlap.

She was a loving and compassionate wife and mother and always placed others before herself. Noted for her sewing and crafting skills, her home took on the flavor of each season and holiday. Her gardens and flowers were the envy of many.

Missy enjoyed spring break and holiday vacations with her family to California, Florida, and Arizona. She was a 29 year employee of Delaware County with the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.

Missy is survived by her husband of 30 years, David Salyer; daughters, Megan (Ryan) Farina and Andrea Salyer; sister, Michele (Bret) Winkler; and many loving in-laws, nieces, and nephews.

The family extends our thanks and appreciation to the doctors and nurses of the Grady Memorial Hospital Emergency Room and the Riverside Methodist Hospital Neurology and ICU departments.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, December 28, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the Snyder Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive (formerly 1510 W. William Street), Delaware, where a light reception and additional fellowship will follow the services in the Snyder Rodman Community Room. Private family graveside services will be held at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery near Rittman, Ohio.

Contributions in Missy’s memory may be made to the Kobacker House, 800 McConnell Drive, Columbus, OH 43214.

The Snyder Rodman Funeral Center of Delaware is honored to serve the Salyer family.

  • I don’t even have the words to express my sorrow at Missy’s passing. She fought long and hard but now she can rest. I send you all my love and deep appreciation for allowing me time with my dear friend. Missy was so lucky to have such an amazing family who gave her so much love & support 24/7.

  • My deepest condolences to Missy’s family. I admire your strength and resolve in caring for Missy these past ten weeks. Though you were aware of what might be, you all preserved in caring for her in hopes that she would conquer the battle. Your love and devotion are most admirable!

    I had the privilege of working with Missy for four years. During that time, there were many conversations about our families and interests. We got to know each other quite well in a short amount of time. I will miss her greatly. The office just won’t be the same without her.

  • Missy was taken from us far too soon. It doesn’t seem right. She has always been a part of our family, and always will be. From all the Worthingtons, our deepest condolences go out to Dave and her kids, and sister Shelley.
