Melanie Marie Houston passed away unexpectedly on August 13, 2021. She was born to Sheila (Emerson) Beaucond and Robert Guerry Houston in Orlando, Florida on June 26, 1962.
As her father was in the Airforce, Melanie spent her childhood moving from base to base, including 5 years in Madrid, Spain as a child. From these experiences, grew her love of travel.
After graduating from the University of Santa Barbara, CA, Melanie entered the Air Force, and became a Captain, specializing in Logistics. She was fortunate to be stationed in England for much of her tour of duty. Following the Air Force, Melanie used her talents in technology sales over the course of 30 years, and earned her Master of Business Administration in 1998.
Melanie was predeceased by her mother, father, and sister Holly, as well as her brother, Scott Howard Houston (Phoenix, AZ). She will be remembered by her generous nature and her family and friends will miss her humor and anecdotal story telling. She leaves behind her life-partner, Amy Turner, son Alexander Turner, Uncle Tony and Marie Emerson, Uncle Seth and Barbara Emerson, Aunt Priscilla and Uncle John Licht, cousins Lisa (Licht) Swaim, and Ginger Licht, nephews Donald Lockwood and John Houston.
