Post-graduation: she had a very lucrative career as a Bilingual Secretary and Legal Secretary in her native home of Panama and the United States.

She later retired and moved to Reidsville with her daughter Milvia in 2002. There, they joined her oldest daughter Dalys, a couple of years later her youngest daughter Leandra joined them as well.

They all enjoyed the slower pace and quiet offered by small town living.

Melba was a devout Christian for over 50 years and absolutely loved sharing the gospel with anyone who would listen. She truly treasured her walk with God, and it showed!
