It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Margo Melaine Snow Melville on November 15, 2021.
Margo was born in Kingman, Arizona to Kenneth Raymond (“Ray”) Short and Jacalyn Sue Conneally in the early morning of August 24, 1965. She was born with large brown eyes and a head of thick wavy black hair. She was an exceptionally beautiful baby and the pride and joy of her family. She was affectionate and always wanted to be held.
Margo was a shy little girl but blossomed in her teens. She was artistic, loved to sketch and paint, mostly with oil, and loved acting. She was a talented performer scoring the lead in the high school production. Margo loved music, especially classic rock, and attending concerts, which she did with her mother.
Margo was always fun, loved to laugh, and her laughter would fill a room. She remained a beauty throughout her life, but she was also kind-hearted, appreciative, and quietly cared for others without any expectation of return. She was clever, quick-witted, and people always remembered her for her humor. She could make a room roar with laughter, sometimes in the most stressful situations.
Margo loved unconditionally. She accepted people as they were, did not judge others, and her friends and family could always count on her to lend an ear and offer support. She wore many hats to many people, but her greatest pride was her children. Margo’s children included her own son and daughters, but also her grandchildren and nephews. She loved “her kids” and nothing made her happier than doing for them, especially at Christmas.
Margo was loved. Our worlds will never be as bright without her, but we are grateful she touched our lives and will hold our sweet memories of her always. Margo was welcomed by loving arms to the other side of the veil by her Grandparents John (“Jack”) D. Conneally II, Lola Conneally (nee Lund), Kenneth Short, Evelyn Short (nee Yell) and Uncle John (“Johnny”) D. Conneally III.
She is survived by her husband Kenneth Melville, children Megan Lane, Kaitlin Melville, Zachary (“Hunter”) Melville, Michelle Brown, Andrea (“Andy”) Duchesne, Autumn Duchesne, Alyssa Duchesne, grandchildren Olivia Duchesne and Vaughn Duchesne, parents Kenneth Raymond (“Ray”) Short and Jacalyn Sue Snow, sisters Shannon Snow, Jessica Machado, Natalie Haynes, Sherri Tarr, and best friend Gail Hanna.
Services are scheduled at 10:00 am on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, 7900 E. Main St., Mesa, Arizona beginning with a Visitation, followed by a Chapel Service at 11:00 am.
