Waldoboro — Melody Ann Feltis, 52, succumbed to her battle with cancer Sept. 29, 2018, at her home. She was born Nov. 29, 1965, in Manchester, N.H., to Stillman Curtis Lawrence III and Mary Louise Delisle Lawrence.

She was brought to Maine in 1974 and attended Rockland High School.

Melody worked at GTE Sylvania in Waldoboro and also delivered newspapers for the Courier-Gazette.

She loved her dogs and her movie collection. She was a loving mother, “Mom” a supportive, passionate person, devoted, always willing to help out, and she always opened her home to others. She was a straightforward woman as well as intuitive and a “survivor.”

Melody was predeceased by her mother, Mary Louise Delisle, her sisters Wendy Lawrence and Stephanie Farnsworth, brother Gregory Farnsworth and very dear friend Aunt Barbara Peters.

She is survived by her soulmate, Roger Feltis, of Waldoboro; son Travis Staples Sr. and his wife, Samantha, of Southaven, Miss., and William Staples III of Mississippi; daughter Stephanie Hildings of Iowa; sister Rhonda Albert of Gardiner; grandchildren Tiana, Travis Jr., Evelyn and Violet; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Also special friends Richie O’Keefe and mother-in-law Alice Feltis.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Friday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to noon, with services immediately following the visiting hour at Hall Funeral Home, 949 Main St.,  Waldoboro, Pastor Tom Rawley officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Melody’s name to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, 217 Landing Road, Westbrook, ME 07092.
