Shirley Ann Mello, 86, passed away Thursday, August 5th in Escondido, California. Shirley was born and lived in Dinuba. She was well known in the community for her good heart and sense of duty to the community. Shirley retired from the Dinuba Unified School District after 28 years of service. She developed long lasting relationships with the students and staff. It wasn't unusual for long time former students to stop and chat. Her sense of community pride was solidified as she was active in the Dinuba Christian Church, Alta Historical Society, Dinuba Senior Citizen Program, LUSO, Pismo Portuguese Celebration and volunteered for the Tulare County Farm Show. Shirley's dedication to family always took center stage. Her love and devotion for them was never ending. Shirley is survived by her loving husband, Frank Mello of Dinuba; two daughters, Alison Oros (Sebastian) of Escondido; Amanda Sollid of Visalia and one sister, Antoinette Houston of Nevada. She is preceded in death by her son, Kimball Boatman and granddaughter Jodi Hedges. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren as well as numerous other family members and close friends. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 28th at 10:30am. The service will take place at the Dinuba Christian Church, 355 E. Saginaw in Dinuba.
