Melanie Willis Obituary

Melanie M. (Bliss) Willis (55) of Clay, NY passed away on Thursday.  Melanie is survived by her husband, Robert E.

Melanie was a beloved wife of 36 years and mother to three wonderful sons.  She always thought of others and made sure all felt welcome in her home.  She was sassy and made us all laugh with her sharp wit.  She enjoyed living in Central New York, especially in the fall with the vibrant colors and crisp air.  Her favorite holidays were Halloween and Christmas. She loved to travel, cooking and baking, spending time with family, working in her gardens and with her honeybees. 

Melanie is pre-deceased by her parents Gary and Linda (Napelitano) Bliss. 

She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Robert, three sons Matthew (Lenny), Victor (Amy), and Corey (Amanda), along with an extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins and nieces.
