Obituary for Melody Sherman Reighard

Melody (Sherman) Reighard passed away on February 24, 2019 at Avantara Care Facility in Billings, MT.

Melody was born on January 11, 1957 to Marie (Schneider) and Edmund Sherman at St. Vincent Hospital in Billings. She was the youngest of seven children and was much loved and cared for by all. Mel graduated in 1975 from Billings Central Catholic High School and attended college in Billings and Great Falls, MT.

She married Tracy Reighard and resided in Helena, MT until a severe car accident took Tracy’s life. Mel was also injured in the accident and was left unable to do anything without help. Even through her disability Mel remained friendly and had a smile for everyone.
She loved all pets, especially her dog, Zoe. Melody enjoyed watching gymnastics and anything that starred Tom Selleck.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Tracy; and brothers, Bruce and Jim. Mel is survived by her brothers, Ed, Joe and Harry; sister, Judy; and nine nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the nurses at Avantara for taking such good care of Mel.
Melody was loved by many and will be missed.

A vigil service will be held at 6:30 pm on Monday, March 4, 2019 at Dahl Funeral Chapel. Funeral Mass will be at 11:00 am on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at Mary Queen of Peace/Little Flower Church.
