Melinda "Mindy" Madean Herrera-Vogel, 49, of Wylie, Texas, passed away on November 14, 2022 after a long illness.

Mindy was born on September 22, 1973, in Richardson, Texas. After Mindy graduated from Wylie High School in 1992, she went on to study Kinesiology at the University of Evansville. At Wylie High School and the University of Evansville, Mindy was a cross country runner. Running was a passion of hers, her whole life.
