Melody Ruth Chung, 56, of Orleans, MA, died on November 28, 2011. Born on December 13, 1954, in Burlington, VT, she was the daughter of Mr. Jim and Joyce Chung.
After graduating from Burlington High School, Melody worked at the University of Vermont as a Library Assistant overseeing Gift Records. She later moved to Cape Cod, Orleans, MA where she earned her Associates Degree at Cape Cod Community College.
Melody loved life, counted her blessings and valued the treasures that were free and that truly signified wealth. Lovingly, with positive thinking and creativity she put her perfectionism, spirit and love into her family and everything she did.
To her son Bobby, she was a devoted mother, teacher and a friend. They shared many laughs and adventures traveling up north. Melody was a teacher providing guidance for any situation even when the situation seemed that there was no guidance to give. She taught him many things in life from cooking to wood working and was a true inspiration to him. Melody loved her son very much.
Melody had many creative sides to her and showed it through all her projects and the many beautiful gifts given to the family. She was everything from an artist, chef, carpenter, seamstress, crafter in needlework, stained glass maker, gymnast, dancer, musician and even taught swimming. She created beautiful needle point works that hang in her family's homes. Melody was and expert craftswoman making stained glass lamps, windows and mirrors. Her carpentry skills were put to work fixing up the family camp with her mother. She created holiday cooking extravaganzas that were enjoyed by everyone. Melody was known as the "Queen of Leftovers" due to her imaginary culinary talents. To her nieces and nephews she was a teacher teaching them to swim, ski, cook and enjoy life.
Melody was a very loving and giving person and would do anything for anybody and help in any way she could and never asked for anything in return. Melody was amazing, strong willed and always looked at the positive in every situation. Melody was truly loved and appreciated by everyone and will be missed very much.
Melody is survived by her son, Bobby Newton from Rhode Island; mother, Joyce Chung of Orleans, MA; brother, WaLun Wong, of Orleans, MA; sisters; Minnie Chung of Manchester, NH, Lida Yuen of Orleans, MA, Kim Warren of Bennington, VT; and several nieces and nephews.
