Kristi L. Melser Obituary

Kristi L. (Noble) Melser, 52, of South Bend, Indiana, passed away at 3:38 a.m. Tuesday, January 23, 2024, in the Raclin House in Mishawaka.  Kristi was born on August 23, 1971, in Muncie, Indiana, to George M. and Dru (Reed) Noble.  She received an Associate of Science in Radiology Technology from Indiana University of South Bend.  She had been employed as an Emergency Room Technician at Beacon Elkhart General Hospital.  Previously, Kristi had been employed as an Emergency X-ray technician at Memorial Hospital, owned Little Bridge Daycare in her home, and was a Para for Special Needs Students at the South Bend Community School Corporation.  On June 10, 1995, in St. Bavo Catholic Church, she married Ronnie Melser, Jr., who survives.  She is also survived by her son, Tyler (Carly) Melser; her granddaughter, Leanna Melser, the joy of her life; her mother, Dru Noble; and her sister, Jeni Noble, all of Portland, Indiana. Kristi was preceded in death by her father, George M. Noble; her paternal grandparents, George E. and Betty Noble; and her maternal grandparents, Denver and Lena Reed.  Funeral Services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, January 27, 2024, in the Kaniewski Funeral Home, 3545 N. Bendix Drive, South Bend, Indiana.  A visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 26, 2024, and from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Saturday, January 27, 2024, in the funeral home. Kristi’s family requests that everyone attending the visitation and funeral wear their favorite Disney shirt and ears or something colorful.  Kristi was the biggest Mickey Mouse and Disney fan.  Her favorite rides are It’s a Small World, Spaceship Earth, and the Carousel of Progress.  She also enjoyed all her kids, from the daycare to the school system, and loved spending time with Leanna and Bash even more.  Her bowling sons Austin, Zach, Nick, and, of course, Tyler all had a special place in her heart!  Memorial Contributions should be directed to the Leanna Melser Education Account under Ron Melser at Norte Dame Federal Credit Union.
