She is survived by her parents, her brother, Jace Scriven, her beloved children, Ethan Scriven, Olivia Scriven, and Augustine Prieto, and the love of her life, Alex Prieto. Melissa was full of life and was loved by many friends and family. Her children were her life and she was their fiercest protector and their strongest supporter. They will miss her dearly. She will be remembered fondly by her many friends, who will never forget her.
