Melinda J. Rainey – Examiner Online

Melinda J. Rainey, 46, of Copley, died April 26, 2024.

She was born in Marysville, lived in Copley since 2010, grew up in East Liberty, Ohio, and attended Benjamin Logan Local Schools. Mindy loved most being a “soccer mom extraordinaire” and spending time with her girls: playing games and Legos, traveling and experiencing nature. She was also extremely passionate about conservation and the inclusion of all people.

Preceded in death by her father, Gary Baker, and her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Maureen and Paul Hoover, she is survived by her husband, Chris; daughters, Madeline and Cassandra Rainey; mother, Melony Baker; sisters, Jennifer (Rod) Ball and Amber (Ken) Rosebrook; father-in-law, Carl Rainey; mother-in-law, Michele (Mike) Dzialdowski; brother-in-law, Neil (Jennifer) Rainey, and many nieces and nephews.

Not only was Mindy a second mother to her nieces and nephews, but she was truly a “mom to all,” extending her generosity and enthusiasm to her children’s friends and teammates. To her community and family, she was a source of sunshine and laughter, as her memories will continue to be.
