She had retired from the American Red Cross, Russell County Chapter and was following in her mother’s footsteps. Her mother, Mrs. Marie had started the Red Cross, Russell County Chapter. She loved her work and was a constant advocate of the Red Cross. Mrs. Houston loved to travel, so she was able to combine her love of travel and traveling to helping others with disaster relief. She was very determined in everything she did, and she did it to the best of her ability especially where her family and community were concerned. Mrs. Houston loved her family and was passionate in patriating in family events at any cost. She was an avid Alabama Football fan often sharing in game day activities with family and friends.
