Obituary for Melanie Shaw Branch

Melanie Shaw Branch, 38, passed peacefully into glory May 14, 2016 at her home. She was born 12-21-1977 in Pensacola, Florida and was never far from the white sands of Pensacola Beach. She graduated from Tate High School and University of West Florida. She brought Classical Conversations to the Pensacola area and eventually coordinated several home school groups. She helped provide a unique learning experience to many families. Her love of music and sweet voice blended together as she served Dogwood Baptist Church where her husband Rusty served as pastor.
She loved Rusty and her children, Emma Rae, Elizabeth and Allen. Her sweet humble spirit will be missed by those lives she touched including her parents, Beth and Larry Morris; her brother, Mason and sister-in-law Danna; her sister, Merry Beth Low and brother-in-law, Jim; her mother and father-in-law, Debbie and Donnie Branch; brothers-in-law, Justin and Jeremy Branch, uncles, aunts, special cousins, nieces, other family members and many friends.
The family would like to thank those who supported Melanie in her battle with breast cancer. Also thanks to those who influenced and help mold her into a compassionate woman who was able to give and be a blessing to others. This was Melanie—she would not want attention drawn to her but to Jesus who was her sustainer and ultimate deliverer.
Her visitation will be Monday, May 16 at 6:00-8:00 PM at Faith Chapel North 1000 Hwy 29S, Cantonment, Florida and a celebration of her life will be Tuesday, May 17 at 10:00 AM at Faith Chapel North 1000 Hwy 29S Cantonment, Florida. Instead of flowers, donations can be made to The Florida Baptist Children’s Home, 1000 Chemstrand Road Cantonment, Florida 32533.
