Melissa Wilkins peacefully returned to her Heavenly Father on Saturday, February 28, 2015. She was born July 12, 1969 in Brigham City, Utah to Vern and Harriet Wilkins.

She is also survived by seven nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father, Vern G. Wilkins and her grandparents. We wish to thank all of Melissa's caregivers at the Utah State Developmental Center, they always went the extra mile to care for Melissa. Graveside services will be held Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. at the Corinne Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Primary Children's Medical Center or your favorite charity in Melissa's name. Arrangements under the direction of Gillies FuneralChapel.

I was so sorry to hear about Melissa passing away. Our thoughts and prayers go with you at this time of sorrow. I'm sure Vern welcomed her with open arms.
