Melissa Ann Huntley, 42, of Jacksonville went to be with the Lord on September 30, 2019. She was born on September 30, 1977 in Concord, New Hampshire to John Sr. and Joanne Huntley.
She attended and was a member of both Christian Church of Jacksonville and First Assembly of God in North Little Rock. She was a loving and caring person that was always there to lend a hand, heart or shoulder for everyone. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from University of Arkansas Little Rock and was currently attending John Brown University to obtain her Master’s Degree. She was a member of DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) and attended the Single Mom’s group at First Assembly of God in North Little Rock. Melissa loved to travel and find new and interesting places to see and eat, and she liked growing plants and flowers. She was the most loving, caring, dedicated and passionate mother, daughter, sister, and friend. She will be missed greatly by everyone that knew her heart. She was a person that would share the Love and forgiveness of Christ not only in word but her actions that never met a stranger… They were met as an equal and friend… Some touched only briefly but forever blessed by meeting her. She loved her kitties whether hers or not. Enjoyed greatly her bunnies, birds and squirrels running in her yard and other places. . .best hold on going down the road! LOVED sunsets…forget getting down the road to fast when the sun set or rose! And great joy was found spotting flowers in bloom or fall colors along the way! And don’t forget Mexican foods or cheese dip and chips!
She is preceded in death by her mother Joanne McConnell-Huntley and her grandparents Charlotte and Russell Huntley.
Melissa leaves behind to cherish her loving and caring memories her fiancé Jay Hudson, her children Tyler Huntley and Krystal Huntley; her father John Huntley, Sr.; her brother John Huntley, Jr.; nieces Lauren Huntley, Kierra Huntley and Norah Huntley; as well as many family and friends.
