Missy was born July 11, 1967 in Rockford, Illinois. She accepted the Lord years ago as her personal Savior. She loved the Lord, her church, church family and the choir. She and her mother were best friends. If you saw one, you always saw the other, and they loved to travel together. Missy loved when family and friends would come over to play cards or swim, and she especially loved to watch her grandbabies play. She was known for her contagious smile and was so full of life. She always lived life to the fullest. To know her was to love her.
