Melba LaVerne Bruns Fielding, 79, went peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior on June 25, 2018. She was born in Dreyer, Texas, on March 18, 1939, to the late Ernest H and Selma Leist Bruns. They moved to the Gruenau Community on January 1, 1942. Melba attended Davy School for the first five years, then attended school in Yorktown. She graduated from Yorktown High School in May, 1957, and then attended Baldwin Business College in Yoakum where she graduated in May, 1958. In 2001, Melba retired from the Yorktown ISD after 32 years of service where she worked as the Payroll Secretary. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church, where she was part of the choir and Melody Chimes. She was always on the go, and enjoyed spending time with friends and family, but most of all she loved her children and all of her grandchildren with all of her heart.

The family would like to thank her caregivers, Jeanette DeLeon, Yvette Perez, Inez Trevino, Leticia Pena and Naomi Rodriguez as well as Hospice of South Texas, for their wonderful care they so willingly provided their mother.

Visitation will be 6:00 – 8:00pm, Friday, June 29, 2018, at Finch Funeral Chapel. Funeral service will be at 10:00am, Saturday, June 30, 2018, at St. Paul Lutheran Church with Rev Tim Muehlbrad officiating. A graveside service will be at Oak Grove Cemetery in Yoakum, TX, at 2:00pm, Saturday, June 30, 2018.
