On June 23, 1987, Melissa was born to Albert and Nellie Carrillo in Roswell, New Mexico, where she graduated from University High School. She was of the Catholic faith and loved helping others in any way she could. Melissa was the beloved wife of Aldo Gonzalez. She was a full-time mother and housewife who loved her family.
Melissa was always smiling and laughing; she loved having fun and playing with her daughters outside or doing inside activities. Cooking, singing, dancing and making TikTok videos were some of her favorite things to do. She enjoyed the outdoors, going for rides and traveling to different places to visit her family. Melissa loved selling make-up, red roses & white roses, and she absolutely loved frogs for some reason. Her smile and presence will truly be missed.
