Our beloved mother, sister, auntie and friend, Melanie C. Brennan (Hanneman-Medina) drew her last breath at 1:37pm on Monday, October 5, 2020. Melanie was born on October 27, 1960 to Paul Brennan and Charrie Wagstaff.

Without Melanie’s kids, grandpuppies, nieces and nephews who were her world, she would have been lost… Just as we are all lost now that she’s gone. Though we will be forever in anguish missing this amazing woman, some may take comfort in the thought that she has an abundance of loved ones that she’s finally being reunited with.

Melanie lived a full life full of laughs, travel, love and strength. Last year she was finally able to fulfill a lifelong desire to visit Ireland, Wales and England (She may or may not have been stalking Paul McCartney). Mel shone a light beyond comparison on all who had the privilege to encounter her and loved her biker friends/ chosen family from an unfathomable depth and with undying loyalty. She was, and always will be, a die hard Raiders fan and was obsessed with all things related to The Beatles.

Graveside services will be held at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 S.) Sandy, UT 84092 on Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 2pm. There will be an informal gathering where loved ones will have the opportunity to speak and share stories and are encouraged to bring their bikes and send her off with a thundering roar! After the services, adults can meet at The Midway, 7176 S 900 E, Midvale, UT 84047 to spend time together and share memories.

In lieu of flowers, donations to cover funeral costs would be appreciated.


Sending my deepest condolences to the children and family of our dear Melanie. She was a kind and true friend to me at work and she treated all of us with respect and equality. Melanie was well-loved, great fun to be around and yet stood her ground when she needed to stand tough. Melanie, you are a truly remarkable woman, and you will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Rest in peace, my dear friend. You are dearly loved by so many.
