PRICE - Marta Melissa DeLesdernier passed away peacefully at her home Feb. 10, 2009.
She was born April 19, 1954 in Vermont, where she was adopted by Richard Damon and Phyllis Cheyne DeLesdernier. They raised her and her brothers, Mark and Matthew, in Tucson, Ariz., where she attended Sahuaro High School.
She married Rick Hufford in 1972 and was later divorced, but they had two sons she loved very much, Shaun Allan (Erika) Hufford of Moab and Robert Damon Hufford of Price. Her sons and her grandsons, Trevor and Parker, were the light of her life.
Melissa was a genuine free spirit who marched to the beat of a different drummer.
If you were a friend of Melissa's, you were a friend for life.
Although she didn't concern herself with material things, she was generous to a fault with anything she had.
She was very kind hearted and had a love for music, animals, ballet and cooking for her family.
She worked in Libby, Mont., And Cody, Wyo., before settling down in Utah to be near her family.
Even though she struggled with health problems over the past few years, she maintained a great sense of humor and had an incredible laugh.
She is survived by her loving sons; grandsons; daughter-in-law, Erika; and brothers, Matthew and Mark. She also leaves behind many loving friends, including her very special friend, Bill Curtis. She was preceded in death by her parents and many of her friends.
At her sons' request, cremation and private services will be conductedat a later date.
In memory of Melissa, please do a kind deed for someone in need as she would have done.
