Melba Jane Warner

August 18, 1957 — March 25, 2023


Melba Jane (Griggs) Warner, 65, of Greenwood , Indiana passed away Saturday morning, March 25, 2023, at her home. 

She was born August 18, 1957 to Melvin J. Griggs and Betty Jane (Driscol) Richardson in Indianapolis, Indiana.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas L. Warner; dad, Melvin Griggs; her siblings Nathan Griggs and David Griggs; and grandson Tyberious Garrett.

She is survived by her mother Betty Richardson of Brooklyn; Her children Rosemary Warner (Mark) of Avon, James Warner of Greenwood and Rachel Goodnight Flowers (Jim) of Amelia Island; Her grandchildren Matthew Gonzales (Katey), Joshua Gonzales, Andrew Warner, Alexia Warner, Mason Carlton and Mia Carlton; Her great-grandchildren Della Tovar and Benjamin Gonzales; Her daughter-in-law, Kelly Warner Glass (Steven) of Indianapolis; her sisters Rosie Fiscus, Rebecca Goodnight, Vicki Griggs; and her brothers Denny Griggs, Bishop Griggs, Jeffery Griggs. 

Melba was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She truly did not know a stranger. Melba was the true definition of living life to the fullest. Most people, if given her cards, would have given up and quit living, but she did the exact opposite. She had the most upbeat and outgoing personality and there never was a dull moment if she had any control of it. Melba was a southern woman at heart and she never failed to have a hot meal waiting on the table with open arms to whoever wanted to come. To the many people who Melba loved, she loved them with her entire being and did everything in her power to make sure they knew that. Melba will be missed dearly by all her family, friends, and anyone who she only briefly crossed paths with. 

Visitation is Monday, April 3, 2023, 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm at Indiana Funeral Care, Greenwood Chapel.

Funeral service will begin at 4:00 pm.
