DeShazo was born on Aug. 15, 1928, in Cedar County to George and Beulah Reeves. She was the second eldest of eight children. Everyone worked together on the farm with gardening, crops and with the cattle. Melba graduated from El Dorado Springs R-2 School, then met and married her husband of 68 years Frank DeShazo. The couple had two children and they adopted their grandson. They have four grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. In 1991 the family moved to Kansas, Frank retired from Merch Drug Co. in Lawrence, Kan., and Melba worked as a secretary at the County Court House in Lawrence. Some of Melba’s community involvement projects include the Quilting Club and Ladies Aide. She has always enjoyed making pies, jams and jellies for friends, family, and church members — some people referred to Melba as Mrs. Smucker’s! Frank and Melba took a bus tour through several states, and enjoyed traveling to Branson. The highpoint in her life is when she was saved by the Lord. Melba moved to Community Springs Healthcare Facility in June 2015, after her husband passed away. She enjoys being involved in the activities and games at Community Springs every day. Thank You Melba for sharing your story and being our resident of the month. Are you a caring individual who would like to assist in caring for the elderly? Community Springs Healthcare Facility has opportunities in its volunteer and nursing program. For more information, call administrator Chris Vickers today at 417-876-2531.
