Our beloved mother, Melody Jaramillo Delatore, 63, of Herriman Utah, was embraced by her angels while surrounded by loved ones on May 21st, 2023. She was born to Alviar B Jaramillo (Father) and Manuelita “Nellie” Pantoja (Mother) on November 10th, 1959.
Melody was courageous, strong willed, and resilient. Though life handed her many trials, she continued to live life to the fullest. She loved dancing with her loved ones, especially with drinks and had a contagious smile. Her presence lit up every room and life she touched. She loved to travel and experience new things. But she also had a love for baking and gardening, and often spent her free time enjoying these simple pleasures. Melody was truly kind, selfless, and hilarious. She could literally talk to anyone and relate to them.
Melody was devoted to her family and her happiest moments were spent among them. She loved having family dinners, opening presents on Christmas, or simply watching a movie together on the couch. She flourished whenever she was surrounded by her loved ones. Quality time usually consisted of her being goofy and making everyone laugh. She devoted her life to being an amazing mom and grandmother, and often spent time documenting their memories with scrapbooking. Though she will be missed, we know the best parts of her will live on through her children and anyone who had the privilege to know her.
“What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” – Hellen Keller
Melody is survived by her children Mercedes Delatore (Daughter) “Devon Smith”, Jeremy Delatore (Son) “Lona Gomez”, Felicia Garcia (Daughter); Grandchildren Cisco, Richie, Isaiah, and Penelope; as well as 6 sisters and 2 brothers.
