Obituary of Melissa Sue Reinford
Melissa Sue Reinford passed away at the age of 40 on September 1, 2022 due to a medical emergency. She was doing what she loved, babysitting one of her nieces. This was one of her greatest joys in life. She was the best aunt, sister, fiancé, daughter, friend, and so much more to many people.
Melissa was a gifted hair stylist. She loved the many people she worked with. All of her clients know that she took her time to lovingly care for them and she made extra effort to make sure that their desires were made a reality. She was also a great ear to listen and talk with.
Melissa’s closest family and friends know that she loved everyone. She didn’t have any enemies. She had a huge heart. Because of that, she gave the best hugs and they always came at the right moment.
Melissa spent the last 10 years with her fiancé, Brad Rieker, and their cats in Quakertown, PA. She loved watching Flyers, Eagles, Phillies, and many other sports with Brad, while they also attended sporting events when they could.
