Melissa A. Gilson was a loving and caring Sister and Aunt, she was unable to have children, but she loved her Niece as her own. Melissa left this world Thursday, August 18th at age 57. She lost her battle with stage 4 cancer. She was born in Daytona Beach on July 17th, 1965. Melissa graduated from New Smyrna Beach High School and received her Associates of Arts Degree from Daytona State College.


Melissa started her career right out of college and never looked back.  She was so passionate about her job, her co-workers and her clients.  They were her second family.

Melissa enjoyed reading, cooking, and trying new recipes which involved many different vegetables and spending time with her animals.

Melissa is survived by: John, Bobbie and Kayla. To honor Melissa’s memory, we are holding a celebration of her life on September 3rd, 2022, at Spruce Creek Baptist Church, 1952 Taylor Road, Port Orange, FL 32128. We invite anyone who knew her to attend and remember her wonderful life. We ask attendees to wear bright colors.

In Lieu of flowers, please donate to Florida Pointer Rescue at 975 Lake Ashby Road, New Smyrna Beach, FL  32168 or use the link of Floridapointerrescue.com/donate.

    Melissa was a wonderful friend and I am so proud of the way she fought her cancer. She told me once she would never stop but the last time I heard from her I was aware the fight was just about over. I am certain she is at peace now and reunited with her first husband. Rest in peace sweet girl, my life was better for knowing you and I will sorely miss the times we spent together
