'Team Mel' taking part in Relay for Life

Team Mel turned out in force at the Leflore County Civic Center for Friday’s Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Team members celebrated life and spirit while recognizing the battle of Melanie DeLoach Wilson, who died exactly one year ago Friday from breast cancer at age 55. Among the 70 or so members of Team Mel are, from left, Bubba DeLoach, Mel’s brother; Carla Holtzlander, Mel’s sister; Carl and Bonnie DeLoach, Mel’s parents, and Robbie Wilson, Mel’s husband.
