Melanie Howell

Ladies & gents, it is with great sadness that I write this post. In the early hours of Saturday 6th August the lovely Melanie Howell passed away quite suddenly after collapsing at Chris Powell’s home, where she had been convalescing after her recent stay in hospital.

Her passing has come as a shock to us all despite her inoperable cancer.

Many of you know Mel, an ex WRAC Lioness and the founder of this Alfaz Del Pi Blanca AFVBC.

Mel was a larger than life character. Confident, funny, charmingly cheeky and she didn’t suffer fools gladly. She was a no nonsense lady with wonderfully purple hair and a heart of pure gold.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Mel’s family and friends, in-particularly the WRAC ladies who were her extended family.

Mel’s funeral will be held at 16:15 hrs on September 1st at Shrewsbury Crem.
