Melanie was born in Casper, Wyoming on June 18, 1984 to Barbara MacMillan and John Lucchi. Melanie was a bundle of pure joy and her family delighted in her. Melanie’s older brother Aaron doted on her, and she was surrounded by Aunts, Uncles and Cousins while she grew. She was involved in figure ice skating, as well as modeling and dance groups. Melanie had a laugh that could light up the room. She was an avid animal lover and was always happiest with a kitten in her arms.
On April 10, 2006, Melanie gave birth to her older daughter Mariah Rose MacMillan. Motherhood agreed with Melanie and it was clear to see she had a new light in her already bright eyes and with the birth of Marin DeLee MacMillan on January 11, 2008, Melanie’s own new little family was complete.
Melanie was always willing to help her family and friends in any ways she could. She cared for younger cousins in her family whenever she was needed. Melanie had a special relationship with her Aunt Judy and Uncle Bob and was often with them with her daughters. Melanie had her own language and was known by many sweet nicknames used only by those closest to her. She was outgoing and social, but also privately bonded with those people she held most dear, like her cousin Sara with whom she shared a special bond from the time they were born.
Melanie is survived by her Mom Barby of Casper, Daughters Mariah and Marin of Casper, Brother Aaron and his wife Amanda of Fort Collins, Aunt and Uncle Judy and Bob Frederickson of Evansville, Niece Kaeda and Nephews Brayson, Cohl and Chase of Fort Collins, Aunts Peggy Reed and Kathy Parsley of Casper and Colleen Rodgers of Evansville, and many Cousins in Casper and Colorado. Melanie is also survived by her Father of Casper and Sister Susie Lucchi-Evenson, her husband Gerald and their children Cicily and Lorenzo of Casper
Melanie was certainly met at Heaven’s Gates by her older brother Steven Beebers MacMillan, who died before Melanie was born, along with her Grandma Faith Parsley, Uncle Johnny Reed, and Cousins Travis Rodgers, Paul Goodfellow, Bhretten Reed, and Amelia Aspen Rodgers.
Melanie’s life was not an easy one, she was no stranger to sadness and grief. In all the situations and circumstances she went through, her family never stopped holding her up and loving her. If you were lucky enough to be a part of this little shining star’s life, you are certainly better for it.
We love you, Melanie.
