GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Transfer student Melanie Susanne Olivieri, a 23-year-old SF State undergraduate with a passion for design, travel and helping others died August 9 at a residential hotel in the Mission District. Friends and family remember the Visual Communication Design major for her wit, art and kindness. “Melanie was beautiful, smart and talented,” said Natalie Olivieri, Melanie’s older sister. “She spoke three languages and can sing beautifully. Those that know Melanie well would say that she was a ray of sunshine and someone who everyone loved to be around because she always lit up everyone around her with love and laughter.”
