Melissa Dawn Sherron

August 8, 1973 — March 10, 2024

Palm Harbor, FL

Melissa Dawn Sherron, 50, of Palm Harbor, Florida unexpectedly passed away on March 10, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of kindness, love, and selflessness. She was born on August 8, 1973, in Ft. Myers, Florida.

Melissa was the second of six adored daughters. She is survived by her parents Mike and Beth Sherron of Palm Harbor, Florida, and her five sisters Michele Wade of Durham, Monica Dodson (Keith) of Durham, Megan Shed (Ted) of Creedmoor, Danielle Wallace (Diavio) of Tampa, and Meredith Sherron of Durham. She was also the proud aunt to twelve nieces and nephews, Brittany Carden, Chase Wilson, McKenna Dodson, Bethany Dodson, Kinley Dodson, Emily Poe, Lily Mitchell, Molly Mitchell, Michael Mitchell, Gavin Wallace, Laney Wallace, and Owen Wallace. She was not just an aunt, but a beacon of love and guidance, always ready with a smile and a comforting embrace.

Melissa's passions were as diverse as they were deep-rooted. She found solace and joy within the pages of her beloved books, where she journeyed to magical realms and discovered countless adventures. Her eyes sparkled with childlike wonder at the mention of Disney World, a place she held dear to her heart, where dreams were not just imagined, but lived.

Yet, Melissa's greatest joy came from caring for others. Her nurturing spirit knew no bounds as she selflessly devoted her time and energy to those in need. Whether it was lending a listening ear, offering a helping hand, or simply being a source of unwavering support, Melissa's love knew no limits.

In her sudden departure, we are left with a profound sense of loss, but also with an enduring legacy of love and compassion that will continue to inspire us all. Though she may no longer walk among us, Melissa's spirit will forever reside in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.

Pallbearers will be  Keith Dodson II, Ted Shed, Dave Rubin, Colby Carden, Jessie Salinas and Diavio Wallace.

Honorary Pallbearer will be Brandon Ladd.
