Melissa Jane Hoover Robinson was born August 24,1946 in Trenton, Missouri, the daughter of Jack and Jenny Hoover. She graduated to her eternal home, Friday, February 25, 2022 at her residence with her family by her side. She leaves behind to mourn her passing, her husband Earl, her daughter Jackie and husband Rick Wyant of Trenton, step-daughter Kim and husband Jeff Kaufman of Columbia, step-daughter Krista Kay and husband Russell Place of Norwalk, Iowa, grandchildren: Keith Howard of Trenton, Ethan Wyant (Tasha) of Trenton, step-grandchildren: Cooper Kaufman (Devin) and Ellie Claire Kaufman of Columbia, Leslie Merriman (Dan) and Russell Place (Kim), great-grandchildren: Mayson Howard, Tyson and Elsie Wyant, step-grandchildren: Tanner and Anna Merriman, and Payton Place.

Melissa enjoyed holding hands and dancing with Earl, walking in the rain, friends and classmates, traveling, painting, horseback riding, donkeys, golfing, her two lab dogs Nellie and Lucy, her cat Stubby. Melissa enjoyed life! She was a good cook, house cleaner, caring, giving, outgoing, conversationalist. She never met a stranger.  

Melissa was thankful for the tender relationship she and Earl enjoyed. She considered her daughter Jackie and Rick as the best gifts God could ever give. Her grandchildren warmed her heart. 

Melissa was employed with Robinson Reality and Serve Link where she loved the people under her care. She was baptized in the Christian Church of Trenton and later moved her membership to Dockery Chapel Church which she dearly loved.

Earl called her a sweetheart. We knew her as sweet Melissa.
