Melinda Joy Golden, 41, was called home to be with Jesus in Heaven on July 31, 2010.

Over the past few years, Melinda was fulfilling her continuous search for knowledge as a full time student in the Computer Science program at Mesa State College in Grand Junction, CO.

Melinda touched many people’s hearts and spirits over the years with her warm smile and love for God in Heaven. Melinda enjoyed many things over the years such as fishing, Florida beaches, knitting, four-wheeling, and found joy in helping others and sharing Jesus’ love with others. Melinda’s favorite bible verse was John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Melinda is survived by her loving parents, Ken and Joan Golden, sisters Joanie and Kim, and brother Kenny.

At the request of the family, a private celebration of life will be held in her memory. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to the Golden Family Memorial to help with expenses.
