Millicent Arnette Anderson, who goes by Melle, went to be with the Lord on November 18, 2023. She battled with complications of Valley fever and the flu. She was 67 years old.
It would be wrong to say that Melle lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Melle stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like. There was no quit in Melle. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight.
She had a kind and friendly personality. She had a heart for giving and always went out of her way to help others. Her motto was, “Your attitude will affect your altitude in life”. She enjoyed greeting and volunteering for food distribution at Rising Star Baptist church.
She retired as a budget assistant from the Department of Defense. Melle completed her Bachelors in Business Administration.
She is survived by her son William Anderson, daughter Athena Sewell, and grandson Isaiah Sewell. Her three sisters Denise Harris, Dianne Moore, Michelle Johnson as well as Dianne’s husband Deacon Alvin Moore. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
Melle’s funeral service will be held at Rising Star Baptist church in Tucson, AZ on Friday December 1, 2023, at 11am.

    Beautiful brought tears to my eyes. I miss her so much.

    Millie was one of the most humble, giving and caring person I know. To call her my friend is false I called her my sister from another mother. We talked nearly every day 4 or 5 times day. I really miss my sister, one thing she knew I love her like a blood sister. Take your rest now sis

    I’m still in shock about Melle’s passing and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend her service as I just was notified yesterday. My deepest & heartfelt sympathy to her family. I met Melle around 2008 when she worked in Finance at DMAFB and we just starting chatting when I would go in that area in that developed a great friendship. Melle was such a good friend, kind and caring always ready to help if she could. My heart is grieving at her departure from this Earth as we spoke quite frequently by phone (she wasn’t much for texting and that was okay) and I know I will see her again. I will miss you my friend and I hope you knew I loved you and I’m so grateful I did get to have a last chat with you a few months ago. Again, my deepest condolences to Melle’s family, she was totally committed to her family and enjoyed her time with you all. May God comfort & strengthen you all in the days ahead.
