Melissa Lynne Brock, 45, of Melbourne passed away on Monday, April 3, 2017 following a courageous battle with cancer.

She is survived by her beloved 8 year old son, Benjamin; her parents Eddie and Audrey Brock; sister Amanda Van Ess, nieces Kelsey (Joel) Willams and Hayley Van Ess, and a loving extended family.

Melissa graduated from Eau Gallie High School and continued her studies at Florida Institute of Technology where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Science. She then accepted a position working for the State of Florida and lived in Tallahassee for eleven years, working in Wakulla and Gadsden Counties. She was then called back to Brevard County when she accepted the position of Environmental Health Director, a position that she has held for the past eleven years. She was very proud of her Brevard roots and cared very much about our natural resources and wildlife.

She was a wonderful mother to her son, Benjamin and supported him in all his activities. She was a proud soccer mom and, as a keen fan of the Orlando City Lions, she enjoyed taking Ben to see the occasional soccer game.

Funeral services will be held at St. John's the Evangelist Catholic Church in Viera at 10:00 am on Saturday, April 8, 2017. Burial will follow at the Florida Memorial Gardens, Rockledge.
