Melissa Dawn Countryman-Korb

October 12, 1974 — September 12, 2023


Melissa Dawn Countryman Korb, passed away on September 12, 2023, in Afton, Oklahoma, at the age of 48. Born on October 12, 1974, in Vinita, Oklahoma, Melissa was a compassionate and caring individual who dedicated her life to helping others.

Melissa's nurturing nature was evident in her various roles as a caregiver. She selflessly moved in to care for her mother after she underwent a heart bypass surgery. When her sister fell ill with COVID-19 and the doctors were skeptical of her recovery, Melissa remained by her side in the hospital, providing unwavering support. Even after her sister's return home, Melissa continued to care for her. Her love for taking care of others extended beyond her family, as she devoted herself to caring for the elderly in her community. However, her true passion was caring for the town's babies. From a young age, Melissa and her sister took it upon themselves to look after the children in their community. This dedication continued throughout her life, even after she became a mother herself. Every New Year's Eve, Melissa would host a sleepover for her nieces, nephews, and anyone else who wanted to join. She was a pillar of support and love for all the children and elderly in her town.

Melissa is survived by her daughters, Mackenzie Korb and her fiancé Michael Pesich, and Marissa Korb, all of Vinita, Oklahoma. She is also survived by her beloved Mother, Pam Countryman, her sister and brother-in-law, Roger and Tomi McFarland, her niece Lexus McFarland, her nephew Oliver McFarland all of Afton, her sister-in-law Stacy Countryman, her niece Ashley and her significant other Sammy Ammons, and her nephew Alex Countryman, all of Claremore, Oklahoma. Additionally, she is survived by her dear Uncle Tim Morrison of Afton and Uncle and Aunt Stephen and Christine Morrison of Langley, Oklahoma. And a number of cousins. Melissa had numerous other cherished sister and brother-in-laws, nieces, and nephews whom she loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her father, Tom Countryman, her brother Scott Countryman, her mother-in-law Lena Korb, and both sets of grandparents, as well as many beloved aunts and uncles.
