Melissa Barnes

In Memoriam
1963-2019

 Melissa joined the Habitat ReStore in November 2017 after 30 years in the retail pharmacy industry. Melissa also had experience working on construction sites and in medical offices. She came to Habitat Cabarrus in search of a more rewarding career in which she could do what she loves – meeting new people and making a difference in their lives. As a lover of upcycling and repurposing items, Melissa felt right at home at the ReStore Cabarrus.

Her kind heart was always compassionate to animals, especially the ones that made their way into the ReStore. Melissa also loved cheering for Germany in the World Cup and riding motorcycles with her husband, Jeff. She is survived by her husband Jeff and their five sons.
