“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” –Matthew, 11:28
Cassandra Clyde Houston, God’s dear daughter, was given rest on June 10, 2020. She was born in New York City on December 5, 1958 to the union of Eugenia Houston-Kelley and Benjamin Houston. Cassandra, the youngest child, was doted on by her loving parents. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, her sister Wilma, her brother Benny, and her dear niece Taneesha.
Cassandra was educated by the New York City Public School System during her primary years, and later by the City of Savannah Public School System. Cassandra moved back to New York and enjoyed a happy and fun-filled life. She also gained professional fulfillment as a long time employee at New York Hospital.
Cassandra took a trip to Virginia Beach and loved it so much she decided to relocate. She blossomed into an entrepreneur and social servant. She owned and operated Jumpz Play & Party Center, an indoor family entertainment center, operated a daycare center, and devoted many years working with vulnerable populations and individuals with special needs.
Cassandra had an adventurous spirit. She loved traveling, fine dining, and exploring historic locales related to the African American experience. The only thing she loved more was sharing these experiences with her loved ones.
Cassandra leaves with saddened hearts and fond memories, her daughters Chenequa, Ciara, and Raven; her grandsons Khalil and Cameron; her granddaughters Gianni and Ayva-Rae; her sister Marietta Chisolm; her aunt Ruby Johnson (Sam); and her uncle Eugene Priester. Cassandra shared close bonds with nieces Cheron, Kelly, and Kim; godsons Michael and Marquis; adopted daughter Lakeisha; adopted son & grandson Tcherry and Daniel; her cousin and best friend Sandra Graves; and her longtime friend Valerie Moorer. She also leaves to mourn a host of family and friends too numerous to count.
