Melynda Arlene Trenholme, age 47 of Gallatin, passed away on Sunday, August 28, 2016 at her home.
She was born on November 25, 1968 to William Albert and Janet Arlene Angell in Madison, Tennessee.
Ms. Melynda was a kind hearted, funny and devoted mother. She enjoyed playing card games like Rummy with her parents, taking trips to Pensacola, Florida where they would rent a house for the week just to spend time with the whole family. Her mother remembered many nights Melynda would drive to Sonic and would bring her back a milkshake even though she would ask for a Sundae. Melynda believed Sonic had the best Banana Milkshakes around.
When it came to her children it didn’t matter what they were doing from Martial Arts with the boys to Gymnastics with her daughter, she would spend every moment she could with them. Teaching Tony to drive was her lasted goal, driving up and down the drive way making memories he was cherish forever. AJ remembered a time that they spent every night for a over a year playing Monopoly; when his best friend broke his foot they would drive to his house pick him up and bring him back to their house so he wouldn’t miss a night playing.
Melynda enjoyed going and doing when she was able, going to the movies, eating at their favorite Mexican Restaurant in White House, spending time at Julie and Rogers house laying by the pool, it didn’t matter as long as she was surrounded by the ones she loved and loved her.
Melynda is survived by her parents, Bill & Janet Angell; children, Arthur”AJ” Justin (Tavonnia Walker), Anthony “Tony” Lee, and Breanna Lynn; granddaughter, Nevaeh Faye; siblings, Julie (Roger) Binkley and Corey (Bobbi) Angell and Life Time Friend, Artie Trenholme.
A Life Celebration will be held on Wednesday, August 31st at 12:00pm in the Chapel of Cole & Garrett Funeral Home. The family will receive friends on Tuesday August 30th from 4-8pm then again on Wednesday from 10:00am until the time of service.
In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to the Melynda Trenholme Children’s Educational Benefit Fund at any Regions Bank.

    Have a couple of corrections. She played rummy with me and I have the score of the last game we were playing. She is winning and it is her time to deal and always will be. Also we only went to Florida once as a family we had a great time. And she passed away at Artie’s house as my husband and I were out of town.and she was staying there . They waited til we got back to tell us that Sunday

    I loved her. God how I did. She was such an amazing person and friend. I just want to call her so very badly and keep hoping that she calls me to tell me this was a cruel joke. She thanked me, so many times and kept saying how much she appreciates everything that I had done for her but she did so much more for me. She made White House home. She was there for me in all my times of need and encouraged me to do anything that I was afraid of doing. The one thing that she will not get is another baby from me. lol She always wanted me to have one more. We used to wait until the kids were asleep and make a run to sonic for some ice cream, to Wendys for her chicken wrap, or to the gas station for her cokes. Always in a foam cup, crushed ice, and a fountain coke. We tried to stay up until midnight and both of our kids crashed by 1030. We had so many wonderful times… Ive been going over them over and over all day. She loved her kids. She always called herself Mama Bear and Mama Bear has to protect her babies. All she wanted to do was go back to work, get a house, a breath normally. She finally gets those things. Her job is to be the guardian of her children and grandchildren. She now has a home in Heaven and she can breathe freely. I pray that she knows how much that she is loved and missed by so many. She has touched so many lives… she has forever changed me.

    To Melynda our cousin from TN , from your Cousins from MS. Even though we are miles apart in distance we always remembered you as a fun loving energetic soul. You had a heart of compassion for everyone. You never met a stranger. You always made people laugh and were so cheerful around others. We loved you very much and wished many times that we could have made time to come up to see you and our other cousins (The Angell Cousins).You are in heaven now with our mother looking over all of us. You will be so greatly missed by all. You are now at peace and resting in heaven. Love you girl.

    Melynda was what you call a ” True Friend “. No matter what was going on with her, she was always there to help out anyone. She was one of the best friends I’ve ever had and I will miss her tremendously. We had many many good times at the Apartments, either just sitting watching the kids play or watching the neighbors fighting. Even when we all moved away, we all kept in touch with each other. Just wish she was still here so I could tell her how much her friendship meant to me. I know she’s in a better place, her pain and suffering is over, but it’s just so hard to let her go. R.I.P My Sweet Friend, Until we meet again, I’ll keep all our memories in my heart. Love and Miss you….

    I couldn’t sleep last night from crying & feeling the emptiness I felt when I was told Melynda was gone! Lord how I prayed she would make it to get her transplant so she could live on with her kids! Melynda & Breanna would always call me grandma which always made me feel like I belong to her family & not just mine. When I saw her at the Grove I would see her pushing her herself just to spend time with the kids & you could see how weak she was. She was always uplifting & tried being positive. Melynda you will be greatly missed but I know you are in a better place breathing, walking & enjoying your new life without pain, I love you girl
