June 18, 1967 ~ August 14, 2015

Michele Ann was born June 18, 1967 in Albany, Oregon to her parents, the late Robert (1926-2007) and Eileen Houston. She was the youngest of seven children.
She was an avid runner, valued healthy living, and enjoyed people and life to the fullest.
She worked as a labor and delivery nurse for eighteen years at Peace Health Southwest in Vancouver, Washington. She will be remembered by her patients as the nurse that went the extra mile to make sure the delivery of their baby was a beautiful experience.
Shelly courageously and inspirationally fought a glioblastoma for the past eighteen months and peacefully passed away on August 14th in her home in Camas, WA surrounded by loved ones.
Shelly's loving spirit lives on in her three children: Hayden, Houston, and Hannah, whom were her greatest joy and motivation. She also leaves behind her fiancé, Ed Goon, who loved and admired her for "just the way she was." Together with her family and friends, they selflessly and tenderly cared for her the past year and a half.
A service will be will be held at Liberty Bible Church on Friday, August 21st at 2:00pm.
