Melinda S. Keegan, 48, of New Bedford passed away unexpectedly on Friday October 14, 2022 in St. Luke’s Hospital.  She was the daughter of the late Edward Reed and the late Diane (Hadfield) Reed.  She was the devoted wife to Mark Sadeck of New Bedford.

Born in New Bedford, Melinda graduated from Marlborough High School. Melinda worked various jobs discovering her passions until becoming a stay at home mom. Melinda was then able to focus solely on raising her children.  Melinda made it a point to be supportive of  her children and proud of the people they are.  She always attended school concerts, plays and other events and made sure she was the loudest person in the room so that everyone knew Don, Alexandra and Matthew were her children. Melinda loved music of all kinds, rock and country were some of her favorite genres to listen to.  She had a big heart and was a true friend who would give the shirt off her back to the people who mattered most to her.  She was a great mother, friend and wife, she will be forever missed by all who knew the real Mindy.
