Melinda Halek

October 20, 1950 — December 23, 2023

Melinda June Halek, age 73, of Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully at home on December 23, 2023 in Coopersburg, PA after a short battle with aggressive cancer.

She was the loving wife of James Halek, with whom she shared 49 years of marriage before he passed in April of 2020.

Born in Newark, NJ she was one of 5 daughters and one son of Walter McManus and June Beck McManus of Westfield, NJ. She shared an idyllic childhood with surviving siblings Priscilla Welter, Cynthia Crosson, Jody Widing, Liz Watson and Mark McManus.

She was a doting mother to Sarah Halek (Daughter), Catherine Statucki (Daughter). Her son James Halek (JR) predeceased her in August of 2017.

She will be fondly remembered for her sense of humor, her apt and witty "Mindy-isms", as well as her immense love for her family and animals, especially horses. She loved interior design, cooking shows and the beach. She was always trying out new recipes, which captured her creativity in the service of others.

A memorial service for family and close friends will be held in the spring of 2024 for both she and Jim, whose memorial was previously postponed.

Please no gifts or flowers, but contributions in her memory can be made to the Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center. You may denote a memorial contribution in her name.
