    Melanie Faith Peace, 60 - LkldNow

    Melanie Faith Peace was called to her Heavenly home on August 30, 2022. She was born on June 9, 1962, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to James M. Britt and Beverly J. Oliver.

    She is survived by her high school sweetheart, Wayne Lamar Peace. They were married for 37 blessed years. She is also survived by her four children: daughter Mary Peace, and sons Bryant, Britt, and Brad Peace.

    Melanie served the Lord with her whole heart and touched every life she came in contact with. The love she had for her husband, children, and grandchildren was indescribable. Her smile was heartwarming, her laugh was contagious, and her spirit was kind. Melanie lived to love and care for others. She gave the Lord all the glory for her wonderful life. She was a devoted wife, friend, mother-figure, and light to everyone around her.

    Wayne Peace is a class act, and always has been. Great Gator.

    I'm sure his wife was more of the same.

    She & Wayne were like Barbie & Ken. Two of the most generous, hard working Christians you would ever want to meet!

    Wayne is my insurance agent & just like Melanie, always greets everyone with a huge smile and & warm hello. She will be sorely missed.

    My thoughts & prayers go out to the Peace family.

    God Bless them!

    This sucks. Great Gator and great family. Way too young. I saw Wayne Peace as QB in my first live Gator game a couple of years before I became a Gator. I sat low row Gator sideline on the road. There was just something about that game that really connected with me to the Gators. And then I was one. Haven’t missed too many games since.

    What a shame. What a beautiful family. Very serene and comforting photograph of them. Blessings to them all. God will comfort them.

    Peace and Gods love to the Peace family.

    Very sad to hear. I knew her sister when I was at UF and briefly met Melanie.
