Mrs. Melba Jane Cash, age 87

 

Of New Johnsonville, TN passed away Monday, April 22, 2024, at her home. She was born March 18, 1937, in Hickman County, TN to Samuel T. Pace and Addie Bastin Pace. 

 

Melba was a quiet individual who touched the lives of many with her kind and gentle spirit. Her passion for sewing and quilting brought beauty and comfort to those around her, while her love for going on rides through the countryside allowed her to appreciate the simple joys of life.

Affectionately known as “Mama C”, she took great delight in attending her grandchildren's and great-grandchildren's ball games and various activities, always offering unwavering support and an abundance of love.

 

In the hearts of her surviving family members, Melba leaves behind a legacy of kindness, compassion, and unconditional love. Her presence will be deeply missed, but her memory will forever be cherished.
