Melissa "Missi" Ann Selin

November 21, 1978March 4, 2018

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, our beloved and beautiful "Missi" Melissa Ann Selin was welcomed into her heavenly home and is now forever safe in the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While our hearts ache with grief, we rejoice in her victory and know that she beholds the face of her Heavenly Father, and is reveling in the purest love and inexpressible joy of heaven.

Missi was born on November 21, 1978 to Ted and Diana Selin. She is survived by her parents, her brother Christopher Selin, sister Lisa Selin Howard, brother-in-law Jake Howard, her adoring niece and nephews, Grandmother Barbara Selin as well as many cousins, aunties and uncles. Missi grew up in Bothell, WA, graduated from Bothell High School, and spent her recent years serving the elderly. She left a lasting legacy of love and devotion to her parents as she most expertly cared for her Dad and was key to his recovery from a life-threatening infection and subsequent heart transplant. She quit her job and lived a very sacrificial lifestyle taking care of their needs, and managing her Dad's challenging medical complexities around the clock for well over a year.

Missi will always be remembered for her love of family, love of children, her humility, her kindness and her beautiful smile that could warm you to the depth of your heart. Missi was the type of person who would come up and talk to you if she saw you standing alone, and touched many lives with her caring heart, wonderful sense of humor and infectious laughter.

Missi was a precious gift from God to our family and we will miss her so deeply and will always cherish the memories we have of her. Our hearts are broken and yet we do not grieve as those without hope. Our hope is entirely secured in our faith in God and the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, so we now completely give her back and entrust her to our Loving Heavenly Father, and truly look forward to the day when we will see her again.

Missi was about 5 years old. We were at my parents (her grandparents) house in TV room.

Missi was laying on couch. I was sitting on an "easy chair". We were watching TV.
Missy new I love Tasters Choice instant coffee with sugar and cream. She was swinging her feet gleefully, smiling, looking at me and says": Hey uncle Ralph .... how about we have two cups of Taster's Choice coffee, with sugar and cream, right here, right now! She had the biggest, cutest smile on her face!!! :-) :-)
I was also smiling and I said: Okay ..... who is going to make them (meaning the coffees)?
You???? :-) :-) All of a sudden she had puzzled look on her face as she pondered my question. Then her eyes lit up, she smiled and said "or grandma'! :-) :-)
Sooooo cute. Sooo funny! I burst out laughing and so did she!!! Warmed my heart to no end. Will never forget little miss sunshine, Missi.
