Melanie Jane Seymour Boyce Carmon was born July 15, 1959, in Biloxi, MS. Melanie was a D’Iberville warrior graduate and a native of D’Iberville, MS. She was a member of New Life Church of Moss Point, MS. Melanie was a woman reborn. She lived a full life and was always surrounded by family and friends that loved her dearly.
Mel loved Mardi Gras, camping, spending the day on the river, and going to church. She loved cooking and spending time with her family and friends. Melanie was full of fire and never met a stranger and a giving person. She had a contagious, infectious, spirit-filled, loud laugh (sounds of an Indian yell…. YEAH-YEAH-YEAH-YEAH). When she walked into a room, she lit up the room; and if not, she would tell you to grab a broom. She was fierce, brave, independent, selfless, strong, and full of life. She was not just a mom; she was everyone's mom and best friend. When she would speak, everyone would jump to attention. She spoke with authority, but behind every word was love and understanding. She was a fighter her entire life; she never stopped fighting.
Melanie is preceded in death by, her father, Francis Seymour, and her mother, Melanie Bass, her sister Kathy Hebert and her brother, Randy Seymour.
Mel is survived by her husband Glenn Carmon; her three children, Kristie Williams (John Cooper), Mandi (Justin Ward) McAdams, Kelsey (Andrew Reynolds) Boyce, and her three step-children, Matt Carmon (Nikki), Olivia Reynolds, Jessie Carmon, her sixteen grandchildren, Bryce Robinson (Brianna Robinson), Kaylie Lane, Noah Williams, Finley Cooper, Isaac McAdams, Emily McAdams, Cole Reynolds, Tyler Reynolds, Azlyn Reynolds, Khloe Carmon, Bailey Carmon, Evan Parsley, Zoey Reynolds, Kenzley Reynolds, Huston Tanner, and Laythen Tanner; four great-grandchildren, Brantley Robinson, Levi Robinson, Lawson Robinson, and Rowan Robinson. Melanie is furthered survived by many brothers and sisters.
She will be remembered and missed beyond measure by her husband, all her children, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family, and friends, and by many of those of the lives she touched. She truly was a special soul. We loved her so much.
