In Memory of
Melina Isabel Doig
-

The world lost a wonderful figure when Melina Isabel Flores Doig passed away on May 13, 2020. A lifelong, fiercely proud Texan, Melina was born in Houston, Texas on October 27, 1978. She was extremely proud of her multi-generational Houston family lineage. In her 41 years, she made life better for everyone who knew her. She was a loving and supportive wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She was deeply loved by all her friends and family. 

 

Melina graduated from Bellaire High School, the University of Texas at Austin earning her bachelor's degree in English, and St. Thomas University earning a master's degree in Education, focusing in Library Science. It was eighteen years ago in an Austin dance hall, enjoying live, local country music where she fell in love with David Doig and was happily married for the last nine years. Passionate about education, she was a middle school teacher, an elementary school librarian (achieving the Librarian of the Year Award in 2013), a dyslexia interventionist and, finally, assistant principal at Wharton Dual Language Academy. She shared her joy for reading by hosting book club gatherings and themed Halloween parties where she and David dressed up as characters. A lover of all sports, she grew up attending Astros games with her grandfather, father and brother and passed along the tradition to her husband and daughters. As passionate as she was about the Astros, she was fanatical about Longhorn Football, teaching her daughters how to make the Hook 'em sign as babies. 

 

Melina is preceded in death by her father Manuel Flores. She is survived by her husband David Doig, her daughters Violet and Victoria, her mother Dr. Patricia A. Silva Flores, her brother Omar Flores and his wife Kirsten 'Keesh' and son Issac, several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

 

A memorial service will be held at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church on June 1. Seating for the Rosary will begin at 10am, with the funeral mass beginning at 11am. The burial will follow right after at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Bryan Bancroft, Brian Canfield, Leo Flores, Pete Galvan, Steve Jones, Allan Pace, James Pucket, and Ryan Scuilli. In lieu of customary remembrances, memorial contributions may be directed in her honor to the family.

I appreciated your humor and ability to ease stressful situations. Our occasional encounters when getting morning coffee were filled with words of encouragement which I greatly appreciated. This school year you became my appraiser and I got to see your fairness and professionalism when assessing my performance. My heart goes out to your family and I pray they find comfort and peace as they adjust to life without you.

Mrs. Doig, thank you for being you! With open arms you allowed me to learn so much in my first year at Wharton. Your smile always brightened up the day, no matter what was going on. You had the ability to ease things with such grace and respect. I am forever grateful that I was able to work with you, a person who cared for our students and teachers/staff. You will always be in our hearts. Prayers and love to your family. May you Rest In Peace. ❤️
