On Monday, June 4, 2018, Melissa “Missy” Godfrey, age 51, of Marion, North Carolina went to be with the Lord and her mother following an extended illness. A native of McDowell County, Missy was born on June 2, 1967 to the late John and Fannie Mae Chapman Lowery.

Missy loved going to church and loved her church family. She was a member of Landmark Baptist Church where she served as church secretary. She was formally employed at Coats American. She enjoyed getting out and walking or riding on the parkway. Missy was known for always doing for others.
Left behind to cherish Missy’s memories are her husband of thirty-five years, Keith Godfrey; three brothers, Eugene Lowery, James Lowery (Denita) and Brian Lowery; and one sister, Debra Fender (fiancé Roger Sigmon). Also surviving Missy are nieces who were very special to her, Kelly Lowery, Leslie Ray, Sally Davis, Hannah Lowery and Savannah Lowery and nephews, Brian Lowery, Jr. and Brock Lowery and her church kids.
