Obituary for Betty Thomas - Melton (Faulconer)

Betty  Thomas - Melton (Faulconer)
Betty May (Thomas) Melton

Betty May (Thomas) Melton, 87, a longtime Wenatchee Valley resident, passed away on Monday, March 26, 2018 at Colonial Vista Assisted Living in Wenatchee.
She was born on December 27, 1930 at Maywood, Missouri to the late William Henry and Ella May (Richardson) Faulconer. She experienced difficult trials early in her childhood following the loss of her mother when she was 9 years old. Her father worked long hours in the coal mines, which led to she and her brothers having to spend some time in an orphanage prior to living with relatives. When she was 16, the family moved to Peshastin. On July 4, 1948, Betty was married to John Thomas. Together they had six children, Hiram, Pam, Addie, Betty, John and Wesley. They made their first home together in Peshastin, later making a number of moves before settling in Wenatchee in the early 1970’s.
She was a homemaker and made the clothes for her daughters and their dolls. She learned to play the piano and enjoyed singing. She also loved to crochet, making many doilies, baby booties and blankets over the years. Betty’s husband, John, died in April of 1983. She was married to Oral “Buck” Melton in 1985. They travelled south to winter in Arizona and while there she loved to go out in the desert looking for crystals. She started writing poetry and loved sharing them with others. She learned to drive and got her license when she was in her later 50’s. After Buck died, she was so thankful to be able to drive. She began going to the Wenatchee Valley Senior Center and enjoyed making new friends.
She is survived by five children, Pamela “Pam” White, Wenatchee, Addie (Ld) Olson, Soap Lake, Betty (Dennis) Radke, East Wenatchee, John (Sandy) Thomas, Peshastin and Wesley (Rhonda) Thomas, Spring Valley, AZ; 20 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild. She was preceded in death by her parents; two husbands, John Thomas and Oral “Buck” Melton; a son, Hiram Thomas; three brothers William, Robert and Gerald Faulconer; two grandchildren, Jeffrey Thomas and Christopher Duffala.
Memorial donations can be made to Alzheimer’s Association. A Commemoration Service will be held at Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Church on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 2:00pm. You are invited to visit her tribute online and leave a memory at www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee.
