Obituary

Melanie Cordle Wardroup, age 53 of Rutledge, TN, passed away on Jan. 3, 2023 at UTMC surrounded by her family.

She was a teacher for Grainger Co. schools for 22 years. She loved teaching and her students immensely. Prior to her teaching days, she was a youth service officer at Mountain View Youth Development Center for 8 years.

She loved the beach, PRINCE, the Vols and the Dallas Cowboys; but more than anything she loved her family and friends, especially her two grand babies.

Melanie is preceded in death by her father, Virgil Norman Cordle.

She is survived by her loving husband of 23 years, Rick; her mother, Charlotte Cordle; daughters, Chelsea (Josh) Hart and Alayna Wardroup; grandchildren, Ivy Cox and Solomon Hart; sister, Patricia Murphy. Along with many other friends, family, and friends who became family.

The family would like to thank everyone who has called, texted, visited, sent money and flowers. Thank you to UTMC for taking care of her the past month—especially to the staff in CVICU, who were exceptional.

A Celebration of Life will take place at Oakland Baptist Church on January 21, 2023 at 4pm. Doors will open at 2:30.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice in memory of Mel.

Oakland Baptist Church address: 15050 Lakeshore Dr. Rutledge, TN 37861
