Ernstlee Henshaw Houck, 81, was welcomed into Heaven May 3, 2014.  She was a loving wife, mother, friend, grandmother and great-grandmother, and generous with her time and talents.  She will be remembered with joy by her many loved ones.  

She was born Ernstlee Jane King on August 9, 1932, in San Francisco, to Margaret and Joseph King.  She completed high school in Vallejo and earned her associate degree in liberal arts.  

Ernstlee first met Edward Henshaw in his sailor whites on a blind date, and the two were married June 21, 1953.  He preceded her in death June 14, 1998.  Ernstlee married William Houck, a fellow St. Nicholas Episcopal Church member in Paradise, California, on December 26, 1999.  He preceded her in death September 2009.  

Ernstlee and Edward lived in Poway for 30 years, where Ernstlee was a founding member of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church.  She spent more than two decades working in the San Diego County Library.  She told stories and performed puppet shows for children's programs as a longtime librarian at the Poway Library.  

Ernstlee played the violin in the Hollywood Bowl at just nine years old, and continued to play in retirement, performing with the Paradise Symphony after moving to Magalia, California, in 1989.  She was also active in Stephen's Ministry, local community theater, and the St. Nicolas's women's group.  

She enjoyed reading, writing, knitting and traveling to the Caribbean, Hawaii and China, and took trips across California and the United States to visit family.
