Connie (Nelson) Melchert

August 5, 1936 ~ May 24, 2022 (age 85)


Connie J Melchert was born on August 5, 1936 in Lansing, Michigan. She was born to the family of Elmer and Juanita Nelson of Webberville, Michigan, along with her surviving siblings: Ken (Patricia) Nelson, Ron (Charlene) Nelson, Maureen (Tom) Poertner and Margo (Rod) Soule. Connie was proceeded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Roy Melchert and is survived by their 3 wonderful children: Paul, Brenda and Sharon, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Connie was a true testament of God’s love and lived day-by-day serving Him to the fullest. She loved her family fiercely and was such a wonderful example of a God-fearing woman who never wavered. Throughout her life, she developed an ever-lasting love for music and played the piano beautifully. Something she never forgot how to do.

Connie suffered from Alzheimer’s and passed away peacefully in the early hours of May 24, 2022 in Howell, Michigan.

Arrangements for Connie’s burial will be for family only, but a Memorial service will be held in her honor at Place of Refuge, 6909 W. Grand River Rd. in Fowlerville, Michigan on May 31st at 10AM for anyone wishing to pay their respects.
