Melinda Kay Reeves went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 30, 2020. She was born May 15, 1964, to J. M. and Belma Cossey. She was a member of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. Melinda was a sweet, loving, and compassionate person, a blessing to all her knew her. To her family, she was a fun loving adventurer who was always eager for the next big thing. She loved country life and spending time with her husband riding horses on their family farm at Walcott. She was extremely proud of her son Kyle and was eagerly awaiting the birth of her first grandchild, Kreighton. Melinda was a Registered Nurse, known for her dedication and compassion for friends, family, and all patients that were under care at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center. She touched many lives and was a true Angel on Earth. As supervisor, she treated her nurses with great respect and worked hard right alongside them. She lived her life full steam ahead spreading joy and sharing her faith with those she met. She had a special concern for salvation of children at a young age and prayed daily for her family. She was also actively involved and concerned with the rights of unborn babies. Her family and friends are heartbroken…but joyous and comforted, knowing without any doubt that Melinda is praising our Lord Jesus with her son Kevin and her daddy in Heaven.
