Melissa Mitchell

October 19, 1965 — September 3, 2021


Melissa (Missy) Kay Mitchell was born on October 19, 1965 to John Edwin Morgan and Patricia Rene’ Davis in Temple, Texas. She graduated from Temple High School in 1984 where she was involved in choir, musical theatre, and a twirler for the marching band. Soon after high school, Missy started working at Scott & White Hospital as a unit clerk. After 20 plus years of service as a unit clerk, Missy fulfilled her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse like her mother, Pat and her older sister, Rene’.

Missy would be described by her loved ones as compassionate, loyal to her friends and family, and always willing to lend a helping hand. She was a lover of all things cooking, Texas Longhorn football, antique hunting, and visiting with friends. Her greatest love was spending time with her grandkids.

She is preceded in death by her parents, John & Patricia Morgan; and sister, Rene’ Waldburger.

Survivors include her husband, Arlon (Skip) Mitchell, Jr; daughter, Amanda Biggs; son, John Paul and wife, Shelby Swaim; daughter, Amanda Warehime; son, Arlon Mitchell III & wife, Caitlyn; sister, Deborah Morgan; nine grandchildren; four nephews and one niece.
