Obituary of Melanie Marie Tagliere

Please share a memory of Melanie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Melanie Marie Tagliere, age 42, of Crest Hill, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 12, 2022 at Lightways Hospice, with her loving family by her side. 

Born June 10, 1980 in Berwyn, she was the daughter of Fred J. III (deceased) and Shirley A. (Pikul) Tagliere.

Melanie was a loving and devoted mother, daughter and sister who will be remembered for her big heart, stubbornness, and perseverance.  Melanie stood up for what was right and spoke up for herself and others whenever necessary. In addition, she was a strong and independent woman who raised her family on her own, putting her kids first, and serving as their protector.  There was never any question how much she loved her children.  She was also an avid Chicago Cubs fan, and loved following “Days of Our Lives.” 

Melanie was very involved in Community Christian Church of Plainfield, and also assisted her mother in her business, “Maids on Time.”   

Melanie is survived by her beloved children, Madison (Maynard Alviar) Kropinski of Plainfield, Ruben Ordaz III of Crest Hill, and Alexis Ordaz of Crest Hill; her loving mother, Shirley A. (James) Tagliere Moore of Plainfield; her brother, Michael (deceased) Tabbatha Tagliere, Nicholas (Brandi) Tagliere; two step-brothers, Daniel (Alexia) Moore and Andrew (Sonia) Moore; eight nieces and nephews, Alyssa, Alexiana, Addisyn, Mia, Gianna, Jonathan, Nathan and Eliza; her boyfriend, Johnathan Stec; her best friend, Jennifer Turnbull; and her extended family of many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 

She was preceded in death by her father, Fred, in 2008; her brother, Michael, in 2021; and her maternal grandparents, Stanley and Geraldine Pikul.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to Shirley Tagliere Moore for the benefit of Melanie’s children or Lightways Hospice would be greatly appreciated.
