Brenda Missy Rogers

Brenda Missy Rogers, 53, a resident of Grady, passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, Jan. 15, while surrounded by her family. Funeral services for Missy will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18, from the Chapel of Turners Funeral Home with Rev. Parker Bowen officiating. She will be laid to rest close to her father in Rocky Mount Cemetery in Highland Home with Turners Funeral Home of Luverne directing. 

Missy was simply a blessing from Heaven every day of her life. She was warmth and love personified, and they just radiated out of her no matter where she was or who she was with. She had such a special smile that simply lit up every room she entered. It’s no wonder people simply gravitated towards her, whether it was at  home, at sporting events with her family, or with friends. She loved keeping up with and talking about Auburn Football with anyone, as well as listening to her favorite classic country music artists like Alan Jackson and The Judds. Missy also loved all kinds of various puzzles, word searches, and games. She dearly loved all of her nieces and nephews with all of her heart, especially when they wanted to quietly hang out and watch some of her favorite movies. This world can be hard and cruel, so it desperately needs more people like Missy who would rather give you the biggest hugs possible just to brighten up your day. She’s gone on far too soon, but I cannot imagine a better legacy of love to leave behind than the one she has.
