Donation protected
Melissa Ann Holland (Walters) age 46 passed away with her family by her side in Lubbock, Texas on September 22nd after a long battle with health issues. Melissa was born on August 1, 1977, in Port Huron, MI to Cecil and Ellen Walters of Aztec NM. She married James Justin Holland on April 13th, 2002. They had three children, Aspen (22 years old) Abigail, (21 years old), and James Dallas (8 years old).
Melissa enjoyed life through her music playing piano, clarinet, singing vocals, and performing in the marching band (John Phillip SUSA). She was accepted into Juilliard. Melissa won Miss Southwest Colorado Teen in 1989. She loved spending time teaching music to her daughters, son, and nephews. She taught music at Sacred Heart in Farmington, NM. She attended beauty school in Durango, Colorado. Melissa worked for the NEA in Farmington, NM and ended her work as an assessor in both Aztec, NM and Ector County, Texas. Melissa’s true love was watching her children perform on the field, whether it was softball, soccer, or football. She was always their #1 fan.
Melissa is proceeded in death by Cecil Walters (father), Mark Walters (brother), and Tamara Holland (mother-in-law). She is survived by Ellen Walters (mother), James Justin Holland (husband), Aspen Coffelt (Holland) (daughter), Tim Coffelt (son-in-law), Abigail Holland (daughter), James Dallas (son), Eric Walters (brother), Christine Walters (sister-in-law), Mark Walters (nephew), Brandon Walters (nephew), Dennis Holland (father-in-law), Nick Holland (brother-in-law), Amy Holland (sister-in-law), and numerous other aunts, uncles, in-laws and cousins.

We would like to get her a headstone that can highlight how great of a person she was and how much she has touched so many people’s lives in such a short amount of time. Anything is appreciated.
