Melinda Kay Bankston
Melinda went to her Heavenly home on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the young age of 41. She was a longtime resident of Albany. Melinda enjoyed sharing a good laugh and a warm smile with family and friends. She had a love for music and singing at her father’s music gatherings. Melinda adored and treasured time with family and friends. She made deep impacts on everyone she met through her warm smile and infectious laugh. The greatest impacts that were left on her were from her Uncle Billy Ray, Aunt Connie, her cousins Leslie, Brent and Jacob, and Sandy who was like another mother figure to Melinda. Her greatest accomplishments in life were her high school graduation and the birth of her two beautiful daughters. Melinda will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
She leaves behind her two beautiful daughters, Madisyn Bankston and Chloe Bankston; sisters, Flossy Miley and husband Darin, and Annette Lachney; brothers, Jonny Lachney and Paul Lachney; father, Tully Bankston; and stepmother, Bernice Bankston.
