Cathy Melzak

Cathy G. Melzak, age 72, resident of Toledo, Ohio, passed away and went to be with the Lord on Saturday, October 30, 2021, at The Toledo Hospital. She was born on October 16, 1949, in Toledo, Ohio, to Melvin and Nina (Jacobs) Wygant.

Cathy was very passionate about family ancestry; she spent over 20 years researching her family’s genealogy. She enjoyed taking candid photos/videos, which her family will forever cherish. Cathy was known as being very selfless and caring; she would help anyone that would need it. She enjoyed shopping, but would never buy for herself, always for others. She was very heartfelt in everything she did. Known to many as “mom”, she was so caring, loving, and didn’t have a bad bone in her body. Cathy enjoyed making people laugh and smile; she was full of jokes and enjoyed being silly to her own humor. Known as the “family rock”, she will truly be missed by all who knew her.

Those left to forever cherish her memory are her three loving children, Angela “Angel” Melzak, Daniel (Yahumara) Melzak, and Laura (Paul) Fulkerson; mother, Nina Wygant; siblings, Carla Wygant, Susan (Bill) Kratt, Doug Wygant, and Eric Wygant; and numerous loved ones and friends.

Cathy was preceded in death by her father, Melvin Wygant and husband, Brian Melzak.

A celebration of life will be held at Lion of Judah, 5732 Douglas Road, Toledo, Ohio 43623, on Saturday, December 4, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., with Pastor Joe Rabbit officiating.

Cathy’s family would love for you to bring a photo, story, or anything you would like to add to a memory box.
