Mellony Roll left this life surrounded by her loving family in Del Rio, Texas, on Thursday, July 9, 2009. She fought a valiant battle against cancer that ended her time with us far too soon. Through it all, she never lost her sense of humor and her generous and loving spirit. Mellony was born October 16, 1955, in Willcox, Ariz., where she lived much of her life, with times in Fairbanks, Alaska, and Tucson and Bisbee, Ariz. Her work with the National Park Service took her to Del Rio in 2007. Mellony is survived by her husband, Rogers Steed of Del Rio; her sons, Sam and Isaac Roll of Phoenix, Ariz.; stepchildren, Will and Terra Steed of Reserve N.M.; her sister, Rebecca Orozco of Bisbee; her brother, Paul (Paula) Blanke of Willcox; and her father, Raymond Blanke of Willcox. Condolences may be sent to Rogers Steed, 1012 Pike Road, Del Rio TX 78840, (830) 422-2542; and the Blanke family at 1354 N. Chastain Lane, Willcox AZ 85643, (520) 384-0484. A potluck and celebration of her life will be held Saturday, July 25, 2009, at 10 a.m. at El Dorado Community Center near the entrance of Chiricahua National Monument. Flowers may be sent to Paul Blanke at 1354 N. Chastain Lane, Willcox AZ 85643. However, the family prefers donations be made in Mellony's memory to a favorite charity, the American Cancer Society or the Wildland Firefighter Foundation,
