At 18, she moved to Detroit and she pursued an education in cosmetology. She then established herself as a hairdresser for about 30 years, eventually owning her own salon. Mrs. Traylor met her husband Hoy Crittendon Traylor (1898–1975) at the Pier Ballroom, whom she married in 1927. The couple retired in the 1960s and moved to Florida where she stayed until 2006 after both of her sisters passed away. She decided to return to Erie County, New York, where her brother and many nieces and nephews lived.

LongeviQuest congratulates Melissa Traylor’s family on her posthumous recognition.
