Mellissa Brown, 58, passed away peacefully on July 30th, 2021, surrounded by her family in Mesa, Arizona. Mellissa was born in Bountiful, Utah, on April 10th, 1963. She was loved by many and was a light to those who knew her. One of her greatest accomplishments was becoming a registered nurse; before that, Mellissa worked as a certified dietician. She also enjoyed camping and fishing with her husband Eric, tending to her garden with her grandchildren, and spending time at the beach collecting shells. Mellissa had a steadfast testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and believed strongly in the power of prayer. In 1984, she married and was sealed to her sweetheart, Eric Jay Brown, in the Seattle Washington temple. Together they raised three beautiful kids: Nachelle, Natalie, and Joshua. Mellissa is survived by her mother, Carole Randall, siblings Jenny, Susan, Robert, and Katie, husband Eric, their three children Nachelle (Justin) Sampson, Natalie (Ben) Heywood, and Joshua (Haley Jones) Brown, as well as five grandchildren and three granddogs. She will be deeply missed by her family. They know she is in heaven, playing with her beloved dog Teela, and looking forward to the day when they are reunited as an eternal family. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, August 12th at 10:00am, preceded by a viewing at 9:00am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel at 6942 E. Brown Road, Mesa, Arizona 85207. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Bunker Family Funerals.
