On January 13, 2016 at 12:15 AM a beautiful and loved daughter of our Father in Heaven returned home. Melissa C Dazley passed after suffering from a hemorrhage in her brain. The hemorrhage resulted from a blood clot that developed in her brain.\n\nShe was born on October 3, 1986, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Tony and Cindy VanUitert.\n\nMore often than not you would find Melissa reading or watching a movie. She absolutely loved both these activities! Her reading was either for her classes or about some aspect of our worlds history. She loved to learn! History was her favorite topic and spent several years taking different classes studying it.\n\nShe obtained a Bachelors degree in Political Science with a minor in German, a second degree in History Education for secondary schools and was one semester away from completing her masters in Special Education.\n\nIn the past year she began teaching students who needed special attention and help. She loved her students! Her experiences with these students fueled her desire to learn more about Special Education and drove her to completing the Master program. Teaching quickly became a great love of hers and brought her so much joy!\n\nMelissa will be sorely missed by everyone that her life touched. She was a loyal and loving friend! She was a beloved sister, daughter, niece and cousin! Her smile and love will be missed by so many. She leaves behind so many that love her and will cherish so many found memories of her in their hearts! Until we meet again Melissa!\n\nShe is survived by her parents, two brother Nicholas and Nathan; as well as her grandparents Donald Dean and Patricia Ann VanUitert and Virgus Connell Osborne.\n\nFuneral services will be held Friday, January 15, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. in the Timpanogos Stake Center Chapel, 795 North 100 West, Pleasant Grove. Family and friends may attend a viewing from 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. prior to the services.
