Melanie A. Kaye, age 44 years, of Cedarburg, WI died unexpectedly Saturday, January 29, 2022, at her home.
Melanie was born September 8, 1977 to Wayne and Karen Foster Feiereisen at Saint Michael’s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI. She grew up in Saukville, WI and graduated from Port Washington High School in 1996. After school she began working in early childhood education and spent over 2 decades in childcare at Here We Grow Preschool at Living Hope Lutheran Church in Saukville, helping to shape the lives of hundreds of children.
Melanie married Michael Kaye on May 17, 2008. They welcomed a son, Patrick, to their family and enjoyed spending time outdoors and continuing Melanie’s family tradition of a yearly get-away to the Wisconsin Dells. She also enjoyed music, going to concerts and spending time with family and friends.
Most of all Melanie lived a life of kindness and love. Whether you knew Mel her whole life or just met her, you immediately felt her enthusiasm for life and wanted to spend more time with her. She will be missed by everyone whose life she touched.
Melanie is survived by her husband Michael, son Patrick, honorary mother Gail Storm McDonald and honorary sister Samantha McDonald. She is further survived by her uncle Leroy (Susan) Feiereisen, Aunt Linda Flannery, Uncle Wayne (Grace) Foster, many cousins and relatives, and countless friends.
Her parents Wayne and Karen preceded her in death.
