Melody Ann Flinn, 56, went home to be with the Lord on August 28, 2022, after a brave battle with breast cancer, surrounded by her family and friends. Born on May 24, 1966 in Cumberland, MD, Melody was the daughter of Marianne Flinn and the late Bobby Flinn. She was the devoted mother of William ‘Zimmy’ Zimmerman Jr.
In addition to her mother and son, Melody is survived by her two brothers, Gene and Mike, and sisters-in-law Joyce and Jen. She will be remembered by her nieces Becca, Rachel, and Meghan (Aaron), nephews Aiden and Liam, and one great nephew Owen.
Mel graduated from Southern Garrett High School. She went on to receive her Bachelor’s Degree from Frostburg State University. She then completed her Master’s in Education from Hood College. Mel was an educator and spent 27 years at Daly Elementary School in Germantown, MD. She was beloved by her students and colleagues alike.
Mel lived each day to its fullest. She enjoyed spending time with Zimmy and his friends, motorcycle rides, Steelers football games, gardening, dancing, lounging in her pool and sipping on margaritas. She was a dog lover and will be missed by her two pups, Steele and Mace. She was greeted in heaven by Nestea, Chestnut, Ringo, Midnight, and Melee.
The family will receive friends on Sunday September 11, 2022 from 12 to 2 PM at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick. A memorial service will immediately follow at 2pm.
