Melanie Sittig, 66, died October 27, 2020 at her home in Caldwell, Idaho.
Melanie was born on October 29, 1953 in Kansas City, Missouri to Ned and Margie Bishop. She grew up with three older siblings, Chris, Kip, and Judy. She married Gregory Allen Sittig on January 8, 1993. Melanie received her Master’s degree in Social Work from Walla Walla University. From there, she became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and opened Insight Consulting, Inc. with the help of her husband, Greg. She was an incredibly gifted counselor and was so loved by her clients. She dedicated her life to helping people get through the most difficult times in their own lives. In her spare time, she enjoyed paper crafts, talking politics, and reading.
Melanie's positive spirit was the first thing people encountered when meeting her. After some conversing, her generosity of encouraging words flowed. She loved Jesus, believed deeply in his promises, and it brings us immense peace to know she's rejoicing with Him now. If her grandchildren were around, the remainder of the world stopped and she was present in their choice of play. Melanie will be missed greatly.
She is survived by her husband, Greg, two sons, Joe and Alex, three step-sons Eric, Pete, and Garth, and lots of grandkids.
Gone From My Sight
Henry van dyke
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."
Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.
And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone,"
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"
And that is dying...
