Jeannette Melton

Leavenworth, WA

Jeannette Melton, 83, passed away on November 15, 2013, in Phoenix, AZ. She was born June 12, 1930, to Joseph and Louise Kearns in Sedro Woolley, WA. She grew up in Wenatchee, WA and married the love of her life, Albert Melton in 1947. The family lived in Wenatchee until 1962, when they moved to Leavenworth, WA, where they resided for 52 years. In the early 60’s, she and Al purchased Honeysett Cleaners. In the 80’s, they converted the cleaners to Honeysett Gift Shop. Jeannette and Al retired in 1990, when they purchased a motorhome and hit the road, traveling the country. In 1996, they became snowbirds when they settled in Yuma, AZ for six months out of the year. Jeannette’s biggest love was Al; they were inseparable. She also enjoyed shopping and she loved to plant roses around her homes in Leavenworth and Yuma. Jeannette also enjoyed her weekly Sunday breakfast with her family.

Jeannette is survived by her husband of 66 years, Al Melton; her three children, Kelly (Mary) Melton, Sharon (Dennis) Rayfield, and Nancy (Terry) Tenley; five grandchildren, Tracy, Julie, Nickie, Jason and Erin; as well as nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Bill (Barbara) Dorsey.

Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, June 28, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at the Leavenworth Fire Hall, 228 Chumstick Highway.
