But greater than all of these joys, she loved nothing in the world more that spending time with her family and friends. Whether it be a holiday like Christmas or Thanksgiving, or just a backyard barbeque, Melissa absolutely adored her family and was so loved by them in return. She dedicated her life to putting everybody first, considering everyone’s feelings before her own, and maintained this selfless demeanor all the way to the very end, She is survived by her parents William and Joan Dorsa, her loving husband Michael Granat and mother in law Margaret Granat, her sister Cathleen and husband Robert Locke, her brother James and wife Ellen Dorsa, her brother William and wife Linda Dorsa; her niece Jessica and Spencer Thein, niece Brittany and Richard Bayer, nephew Robert and Anna Dorsa, nephew James and Ashley Dorsa, nephew Michael and Jordan Dorsa, niece Bridget Dorsa, niece Elizabeth Dorsa, niece Laura Dorsa and Nick Alimurat, and niece Rosemary Dellaporta and Chris DeFranco.
