Obituary – Patricia Wells Melton

Patricia Wells Melton, 74, went to be with the Lord on August 20, 2017. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Joseph K. Melton; her parents, Ruth and Lloyd Wells; and a grandson, Zachary Sharpe. She is survived by her three daughters, Sherry Farrar (Cary) of Mechanicsville, Christine Hedgepeth of King William and Tina Sharpe (Jeff) of Snow Camp, N.C.; two sisters, Faye Wilfong (Rich) of Exmore, Va. and Barbara Wood (Bobby) of Mechanicsville; also surviving are three grandchildren, Jamie Brown (Greg) of Henrico, G.C. Farrar IV., of Richmond and Victoria Sharpe of Snow Camp; as well as two great-grandchildren, Harper and Hudson Brown of Henrico; and many nieces, nephews and cousins who all loved her dearly. Pat was a great lover of people, and never met a stranger. Her first love, however, was her husband Joe and her family. She delighted in her children's and grandchildren's activities and nothing was more gratifying to her than to be with those she loved so much. She was a longtime member of Gethsemane Church of Christ. The family would like to express their gratitude to the nurses of Capital Care Hospice and the staff of Elizabeth House for their care. The family will receive friends on Wednesday (today) from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. in the Bennett Funeral Home, 8014 Lee-Davis Road, Mechanicsville. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday in Gethsemane Church of Christ, 5146 Mechanicsville Tpke, with burial to follow in the churchyard. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Pat's name to either Capital Care Hospice or Gethsemane Church of Christ.
