Melanie Dee Hatch gained her angel wings when she was called home to be with our Heavenly Father on Oct. 12, at the tender age of 49.
Melanie was born Jan. 22, 1971, in Evanston, to Sidney William Thornock and the late Karen June Thornock. She spent her childhood in Mountain View, where she attended school and graduated with the class of 1989.
At the age of 18, she met, fell in love with and later married Ray Moss Hatch on March 3, 1990. They later were sealed together for time and all eternity.
From this loving marriage they welcomed their three lovely children Alyssa Karen Page, Colton Ray Hatch and Lucas William Hatch into this world.
Melanie was a wonderful wife and mother.
She enjoyed dancing, scrapbooking pictures of her children, hosting Stamping Up and Pampered Chef parties, sewing, decorating her home, yard work, riding four wheelers in the mountains, camping at Bear Lake and was up for a last minute road trip with her sister.
Melanie’s treasures in life were always her husband and children, but the sparkle of her eye named James Ray Page called her Nana.
Melanie was a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. She held a few callings throughout her life. The last calling was sending birthday cards to her Brothers and Sisters in her ward.
Melanie was preceded in death by her mother Karen June Thornock and in-laws Minnie Leona Hatch and Calvin Ray Hatch.
She is survived by her husband Ray Moss Hatch; daughter Alyssa Karen Page (JD) and sons Colton Ray Hatch and Lucas William Hatch, all of Layton, Utah. She is also survived by sister Wendy Michelle Lester (Varrin) of Evanston and father Sidney William Thornock (Sharol) of Fort Bridger, along with many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews.
