Melissa Kathryn Mills (Oliver), age 31, passed away on Friday, September 13, 2019. She was a resident of Colorado Springs. She was a long-time employee of Kings Soopers, working at many locations.
Melissa was born on September 28, 1987 to Lorrie-Lynn Marie Sizemore (Oliver)and David Brian Oliver in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Melissa was one of the most genuine people you would ever meet. If needed, she would give you the shirt off her back, and then buy you five more. She was beautiful, loving, loyal, thoughtful, and one of a kind. Melissa always had a big beautiful smile on her face and gave the best hugs imaginable. She was so much fun and had an infectious laugh, complete with the occasional snort. Melissa was a warm, caring soul that gave so much to others. She mothered all who needed her, was a shoulder to lean on, and was adored by everyone she came into contact with. Melissa had a great love of the outdoors and always felt at peace there.
She is survived by her husband, Joe Mills; daughter, Brianna Mills; grandmother, Lorraine Oliver; parents, Lorrie-Lynn Marie Sizemore and David Brian Oliver; siblings, Bethany-Ann Elizabeth Kipps (David Kipps), David Brian Oliver II, Andrew John Oliver, Mary Grace Sizemore (Ryan Wahaus), Raphael Morgan Sizemore; nieces and nephew, Jordan Huffman, Jordan Oliver, Lexey Morse, Joanna Kipps, Alex Oliver; cousins, Amanda Grueschow, Michael Grueschow, Lindy Oliver, Steven Grueschow; many Aunts and Uncles, Joshua McCormick, Jasey Rae; and more friends than we can possibly list.
She was preceded in death by God Parents, Eileen Nelson, Raul Balquin; and Stepfather, Michael Sizemore.
