Melissa Mendez Breidenstein

December 24, 1962 — November 5, 2023



BREIDENSTEIN, Melissa (nee Mendez). Beloved wife of Thomas Breidenstein. Devoted mother of Frances and William Breidenstein. Cherished daughter of William and Martha (nee Mahoney) Mendez. Dear sister of Rand (Carolyn) Mendez, Jane (Kevin) Carnahan, and David (Phoebe) Mendez. Also survived by many extended family and friends.

Melissa passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2023 at the age of 60 years.

Mass of Eternal Rest will be held at St. Gabriel Church, 48 W Sharon Rd., Glendale, OH 45246 on Monday, November 13, 2023 at 10am. 

Melissa's passion in life was her family, including her loving and around-the-clock care for William since his tragic and debilitating epilepsy diagnosis. Thus, in lieu of flowers, family and friends have established a GoFundMe account that will be used to support the family through this time as they adapt to life without their wife and mother.
