Melissa “Missy” Dunlap Salyer
February 25, 1959 ‒ December 21, 2016
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.
