(Cisco) Keiser, 53 of Celina, went home to be with the Lord, Saturday,
June 11, 2022 at 6:15 am, in Coldwater Hospital unexpectedly, while
surrounded by her family.

Celina Senior High School and continued through out her life to support
the Celina Bulldogs.

Melinda was a longtime member of Bethany United Methodist Church. She
had a huge heart, a beautiful soul, a contagious laugh and never met a
stranger; she thought everyone was her cousin. Christmas, Myrtle Beach,
Winnie the Pooh, and her cats and dogs, Winnie and Ethel were a few of
her favorite things. Most of all she loved her family. She was devoted
daughter, loving wife, beautiful mother, wonderful grandmother, sister,
aunt, niece, cousin, and friend. As our hearts ache for the physical
loss of her, we find serenity knowing that she is now with God. She is
at peace, and for that, we are grateful.
