Obituary for Melanie Ann Stephens

Melanie Ann Stephens, 42, of Huntingdon, passed away on Thursday, January 27, 2022, at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown. Born on October 9, 1979, in State College, she was the daughter of Bill Stephens, who is surviving at home and the late Vickie (Duck) Stephens, who preceded her in death in 2015. On September 13, 2020, she married the love of her life, Ryan Steffy, who survives at home.

Melanie was a graduate of State College Area High School. She was working as a server for Applebee’s.

In addition to her husband, Ryan, and father, Bill, she is survived by her sister, Michele Stephens of Bellefonte. Also surviving are her grandparents, Richard and Mary Lou Duck.

Melanie loved the ocean and the trips that she took to Key West, Florida, and Chincoteague Island, Virginia. She enjoyed going camping and took an interest in photography. She loved her dogs – Louis, Victor, and Samson – like they were her own children. She had a special ability to make a connection with people; the amount of lives that she touched was immeasurable.

Funeral services and burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte.
