Charon LaTeia Melvin was born at Greater Southeast Hospital in Washington, D.C. on August 22, 1981 to Calvin & Margaret (Davis) Melvin.
Charon was educated in the Prince Georges' county public schools. She continued her education at Towson University & Bowie State University where she received a Bachelor's degree in Pedology. Being the forever learning person that she was, Charon studied Audiology at George Washington University and later obtained a Master's degree in Psychology at Bowie State University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude.
As a student and intern, she worked for the Prince Georges' County elementary school system, the Department of Energy & Chrysalis House. Upon obtaining her Master's degree, Charon was employed by Chrysalis House as a Mental Health Therapist. Charon enjoyed talking with people and helping them through their problems. She was very wise for her age and gave excellent unbiased advice. Charon was also a licensed Real Estate agent for several years with Fairfax Realty, Inc.
In 2005, Charon married her high school sweetheart and first love Derrick (Shaun). From this union, God blessed them with two beautiful children, Darius Samuel (2 years) and Candice Lael (9 months).
Charon grew up at Greater Morning Star Pentecostal Church under the pastoral leadership of Bishop Ramsey N. Butler and Bishop Charles E. Johnson. She was baptized in Jesus' name and received the gift of the Holy Ghost at the age of twelve. She remained sold out to God and faithful to Him until He called her home.
In 1997, Charon became a member of Prayer Center Restoration Church under the pastoral tutelage of Pastors Prince Davis & Pastor Leroy Davis. There she was the Youth Leader, a Sunday School Teacher, a Worship Leader and a very faithful servant until her hospitalization.
