Life Legacy


Frances Elizabeth Eanes Meloy, 93, a resident of Mitchellville, Maryland for the past 16 years, died of natural causes on April 4th.
Mrs. Meloy was born on October 15, 1918, in Richmond, Virginia. She was one of three children of the late David Dance and Annie Woodward Eanes.
After graduating from the Collegiate School for Girls, she attended Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg. In August of 1941, she married the late Judge Samuel W. H. Meloy. For the next 48 years, they and their family lived at their historic home,“ Billingsley”, on the Patuxent River in Upper Marlboro.
She was a devout member of Trinity Episcopal Church, the Altar Guild, the Morning Circle, and served as a Senior Warden on the Church Vestry. Fran belonged to the Forest Garden Club, the Law Wives of Prince George’s County, and the University of Maryland Terrapin Club.

Millard Tawes, former Vice Chairman of the Prince George’s Democratic Campaign Committee, and was amongst the founders of The Melwood Center and the former Queen Anne School, located on the grounds of historic St. Barnabas Church.
Politics, entertaining, gardening, and reading were her favorite interests, but her greatest pleasure was spending time with her beloved family.
