She lived in Okarche, OK before moving to OKC with her family. Melanie attended Bishop McGuiness High School. After graduating high school Melanie met and married Gary Redus. They were married 44 years and during that time they had "four boys." Not only was she homeroom mother for her boys, she could always be seen sitting in the stands cheering her boys on at both football and baseball games. She never missed a game even when she was ill.

The family would like to thank Dr. Worcester, Dr. Carter, their staff and the staff at Fresenius for all they did for her over the years.
