We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Missy. As a cousin from Canada, I remember that fun part of our summer when their family would come for a holiday and stay with us. She was like a big sister - a big kid at heart! She will be extremely missed and We extend our sympathy to you Jim and to your entire family

I am a Canadian cousin of Missy’s and I remember the fun summer visits we had with her and her family!! She would often stay at our farm for a week during the summer!! I fondly remember all the fingernail painting that happened during that week and making our first homemade pizza with her!
Family was so special to her and she was so great to call and keep connected with her Canadian cousins! She will be missed so much by so many.
Our thoughts, prayers and sincere sympathy to Jim and all the family ❤️

I am a cousin from Canada. I recall fondly many visits of Missy and her family when they would come to Canada. Family was very important to Missy. She held that loyalty very close to her heart. Missy always had a story or a memory to share. She will truly be missed by her family and friends. Donna and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Jim and her Family

My family has such fond memories of Margaret. We attended the same church in Livonia. What a kind and thoughtful lady. She made Detroit Tigers covid masks for our whole family. She also made a Detroit Tigers themed cross-stich for our son.

I am one of many of Missy’s Canadian cousins. I remember fondly the summer visits we would have when Missy, her brothers and her parents came to Ontario for holidays. We have many wonderful memories of the games and fun we had playing together!
