Obituary for Melanie April Lo Presti

Melanie April (Rosebud) LoPresti, September 6, 1972 - August 2, 2020. We remember that Melanie could light up a room with her bright smile, flashy blue eyes, flowing golden hair and that bubbly personality. Melanie was born in Pittsburgh and remained in the Pittsburgh Area for most of her life earning a degree in Professional Studies at Point Park University.

Despite insurmountable odds, Melanie remained grounded in her unwavering faith in our God. She shared the Word of God and songs of praise with whomever would listen. Now Melanie April is probably smiling as she dances in her glorified state and in her special spin-out dress with the bells on the hem that Nana made just for her Rosebud. When Melanie lays down to rest, we can be sure that both she and her kitty-cat companion, Trooper, who passed before her and waited for her to come home like he did so many times before, will be cradled in the arms of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Melanie survived and is survived by many family members and friends and will be missed.

Melanie April LoPresti, Child of God, Sister of Christ.

The Ryan M. Warren Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., 544 Chestnut Street, Meadville, PA 16335, has been entrusted with the care of Melanie's arrangements.

Memorial messages may be left for Melanie's Mother, Linda, and family at Suggested memorial donations may be made to Tunnels to Towers Foundation at or to CHAPS at

Thank you to everyone who has posted sentiments here and in private. I truly appreciate it.

On this day that would have been Melanie's 48th birthday, I would like to share the sentiments in a card that I purchased for her 6 months ago when I saw it in the store and thought the words represented exactly how I felt about Melanie.
"I will love you on days when you are perfect in my eyes and on days when I wonder why you do the things you do.
I will love you when you are the strong center that calms me and when you need to feel the comfort of my support.
I will love you when you are confident and proud of everything that you stand for and when you need me to remind you of how far you've come, and that there is no limit to how far you can go.
Now and forever, come what may, just as you are...
I will love you."
Happy Birthday.

One day I'll get to meet Melanie! What a beautiful child of God!
She is definitely being cradled in the arms of Jesus Christ, and I know they are both smiling.
May you be comforted by memories and embraced by the love of family and friends!
"Oh, how I love Jesus! Oh, how I love Jesus. Oh, how I love Jesus because he first loved me!"

Linda, my love and prayers go out to you. I was heartbroken to read the news. I wish I could give you a big hug right now. I simply don't know what to say. It sounds as if your daughter was truly a gem. Unfortunately, I never got the honor and pleasure of meeting her. But, I can certainly tell that she inherited everything from talents, personality, and good looks, from her mom.May our Lord give you comfort in this trying time. John 14:1 - 3
