Melinda “Moe” S. Polzer, 45, passed away after a valiant battle on Friday April 30, 2021 at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. She was born on August 12, 1975 in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Moe was an exceptional young woman with a heart of gold. Her compassion for others lead her to be a beacon of hope and acceptance amongst her friends. Moe would gladly offer the shirt from her back to anyone in need. Her sparkling personality and quick wit sculpted her to be a well-known and respected bar tender in the Myrtle Beach area for many years. In her free time, Moe relished time spent with her family and volunteering at the Grand Strand Humane Society. Moe generously would donate her birthday gifts to the shelter and the animals in need. Moe will be deeply missed but fondly remembered for her sense of humor, bright smile and love for her family.
