Melissa Sue Ketterer, age 52 of Hollywood, Fl. , formerly of Zelienople passed away August 22,2021 surrounded by her loving family after a short, but hard-fought battle with cancer.
Born in Ellwood City, she was the daughter of the late Eleanor anad Harry Evans.

Melissa’s distinguished career as a dedicated Employee Benefits and Health & Welfare Professional was punctured on July 31, 2021 when she received her designation as Juris Master from the Florida State University College of Law.
Melissa was passionate about mentoring and guiding all people, but especially young women as they began their professional careers. She was a true friend and trusted confident with a tenacious spirit that energized those around her.
In her spare time, Mellissa enjoyed attending Renaissance Festivals(in costume of course), in addition to donating countless hours to the Basenji Rescue and Transport Home to ensure dogs in need received the love and care they deserved.
Melissa is survived by her husband of 34 years, Robert “Bob” Ketterer, one daughter, Katherine “Katy” Ketterer, her mother and father-in- law Alice and Walter Ketterer.
