  1. So many fond memories of Melva at the grocery store growing up in Emmett. She had endless patience with all of us kids in town who came to peruse the “penny candy”. What a sweet and loving spirit she had. May she rest in peace.

  2. The McNulty’s were a source of many memories in their store in Emmett. The cherry mash candy gift is one of those stories for me personally. Such a kind lady.

  3. So sorry to read of Melba’s passing. Please accept my deepest condolences. May She Rest In Peace & God Speed……

  4. I delivered meals to Melva at Walnut hills and she was always friendly and always thanked me for bringing her a meal. Will truly miss her smiling face.

  5. I am crying as I write this. Melva was my neighbor and I got to know her well during the past two years. I have never heard anyone say anything negative about Melva. She was a sweet, considerate, loving lady. I miss her already.

  6. We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God’s sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation 21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at jw.org.

  7. So sad to hear of Melva passing. A kind & considerate individual who always cared and both her & Bernard were involved in the community’s activities.May she rest in the Lord’s arms.
