Melissa Lozano Flores, 50 years old, left us too soon on August 9, 2020, at 12:15 p.m. at Valley Baptist Hospital in Brownsville, Texas. She was the daughter of Jorge Luis Flores and Diana Montes Flores whom she has now been reunited with, in heaven.
Melissa was born in Brownsville, Texas. Melissa graduated from Pace High School, class of ’88, and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from the University of Texas Brownsville. She worked as a teacher for the Brownsville Independent School District for 27 years. Most recently she served as an elementary school teacher at Burns Elementary. She found so much joy in teaching and loved the Burns family dearly.
Melissa was larger than life, with a laughter that expressed all the joys she found throughout everyday of her life. Her laughter was so contagious. Melissa was the energy in every room she walked through. You always knew that when Melissa was around, you were going to smile, laugh, sing, and dance. Always the “Life of the Party.” She had an abundance of beautiful friends surrounding her at every moment. She was truly loved dearly and so blessed.
What brought Melissa the most joy was being a mother to her two beautiful children, Zoe and Arian. She lived every moment for them. She would take them on many adventures and many memorable trips. Her dream came true when she became a Mama.
She is preceded in death by her beloved mother, Diana Montes Flores. She is survived by her loving father, Jorge Luis Flores, her siblings, Jorge L. Flores Jr, Diana Flores Anzaldua, the children’s father, Rogelio Lozano, and her beautiful children Zoe Melissa and Rogelio Arian.
