Melyssa Weigold Obituary

Melyssa L. Weigold of North Braddock, age 45, passed away on Friday, October 6, 2023 following a courageous battle with Breast Cancer.

Born on April 10, 1978, Melyssa was a vibrant and loving individual who touched the lives of many with her warm personality and infectious laughter.

Melyssa was the cherished daughter of the late Richard Porupsky and Elizabeth "Betsy" (late John McKinley) (Weigold) McKinley.  She was a devoted mother to her daughters, Al'aia (Chase Cannon) Brown and Kenadie Hayes, who were the center of her universe. Melyssa was also a loving sister to Ryan Weigold, Heather (Vince) Cowherd, Melanie (Derrick) McKinley-Jenkins, Emiliano (Stephanie) Amador, Richelle Porupsky, Arman Porupsky, Ronald (Melissa) Porupsky, and Tara (Antawn Davis) Wynn. She is also survived by her mother figure, Teresa Wynn, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews, and her extended “bonus children” whom she deeply cherished.

A 1998 graduate of Woodland Hills High School, Melyssa went on to serve as a logistics coordinator for several businesses throughout the greater Pittsburgh area.  Melyssa was well known for creating a welcoming atmosphere, which she put to good use tending bar for a number of local establishments, most notably the American Legion Post #527 in East Pittsburgh.

Melyssa was a woman of many interests and talents. She had a deep love for travel, particularly to warmer climates with beautiful beaches, with Florida being her favorite destination. A skilled artist and painter, Melyssa was known for creating unique birthday glasses for her family and friends, a testament to her creativity and thoughtfulness. Her outgoing and friendly nature made her a joy to be around, and she had a knack for lighting up any room she entered with her vivacious personality.

Above all, Melyssa was a devoted mother who loved her children deeply. She would do anything for them, and her love for them was evident in everything she did. Her children were her greatest joy, and she took immense pride in their accomplishments.

Friends are welcome Tuesday from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Unity Baptist Church, 420 5th St., Braddock, PA 15104.  A Funeral Service will be held in the church at 1 p.m.
