Melody loved her family and friends deeply. She was dedicated to her kids and cherished her role as a mom. She was the first one on the dance floor and her good spirit and laugh were infectious. Melody was also driven, organized, and caring, characteristics she put to use as a passionate volunteer for many causes including St. John’s Presbyterian Church, TEYSA, New Eagle Elementary School, T&E Cares, and Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort. Her friends remember her as a sought-after committee partner because she worked hard to get the job done and had fun along the way.
Melody is the daughter of the late Florence W. Ticknor and Edward C. Ticknor, and the sister of Edward C. Ticknor Jr., Robert J. Ticknor (Elizabeth), and Sherry J. Graff. Melody is survived by her husband of 41 years, Joseph F. Birmingham, daughter Kelly E. Inman (Justin), and son Kyle J. Birmingham (Jena Stenger). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Noah J. Inman (6) and Evelina M. Inman (4).
