Melissa Anne (Camarata) Wragge, 31, passed away with her family at her side on Tuesday, July 26, 2011, after a courageous battle with Scleroderma.

Melissa was born Aug. 18, 1979 in Sunnyside to Raymond and Phyllis (Cochran) Camarata.

Melissa married Travis Wragge on July 23, 2005. She was blessed with the birth of their son Tristan on April 22, 2006. Her life was her family. Her heart and soul were so rich and warm. The love she had for her friends and family could not be measured.

Melissa enjoyed scrap booking, hosting at-home parties such as PartyLite, Pampered Chef and many others. She loved having people in her home and around her. Birthdays, anniversaries or any reason to have a get together was something Melissa enjoyed hosting and did so in a huge way.

She cared so much for others and always thought of others before herself. She was the "family historian" whether it was a song, birth date, anniversary or anything else you needed to know, Melissa had the answer.

She is survived by her husband, Travis of Yakima; son, Tristan of Yakima; parents, Raymond and Phyllis Camarata of Mabton; a brother, Tim of Mabton and fiancé, Carrie Jones; in-laws, Bill and Renee Wragge of Ellensburg; brothers-in-law, Tom (Misty) Wragge of Toppenish, Larry Wragge of Roslyn; and sister-in-law, Peggy Wragge of Ellensburg; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; and her friends will deeply miss her.

Special thanks to the nurses, staff and doctors at Yakima Memorial Hospital for their supportive and exceptional care during the final days of her life.

Memorial services and a reception will be held Saturday, July 30, 2011, at 11:30 a.m. at Raspberry Hills, 48th and Nob Hill. Private inurnment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery in Ellensburg.

Memorial donations can be made at any U.S Bank, c/o Travis Wragge in trust for Travis Wragge.

Affordable Funeral Care is entrusted with the arrangements
