Melody married the love of her life, Scott H McCoard on June 24,1977 in the Ogden Utah Temple.

She is survived by her devoted husband, Scott, her parents Jerry & Carol DeGroot and her adoring brothers Darren (Rhonda), Steven, Ron (Lori) many nieces and nephews that she loved unconditionally. Melody and Scott have an adopted daughter that Scott says she adopted them out of sheer love that went both ways.
She was proceeded in death by her loving mother Jeanette DeGroot, her grandparent’s Lloyd and Minnie Carter, Dave and Helen DeGroot
