Melinda Ann Baumann-Fisher, age 56 of Truckee, California, passed away on the evening of January 6, 2015.

In high school Melinda was very active in the theater arts, and was especially passionate about make up and costume design. That passion carried through to many fun-filled Halloween costumes for the whole family.

Melinda loved spending time on Balboa Island where friends and family would come together for good times, making it what she called her “happy place.” Melinda was very well known and loved in the Truckee community, a good hearted philanthropist always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.

From organizing fundraisers and working closely with many local vendors for sponsorships and donations for local events and charities.
