She attended school and graduated from William Chrisman High School in Independence. She was employed by Sears where she worked in the billing department until her retirement. Mickey enjoyed frequenting thrift stores and yard sales. She also had a love of birds and flowers of all kinds. Mickey was known as a caregiver and she loved taking care of her family.

Survivors include two children, John Temple and his wife, Paula, Independence, Pat Paris and her husband, Clayton, Kansas City, Mo.; three sisters, Mary Huffman, Independence, Virginia Pate, and Martha Parker, both of Grain Valley, Mo.; five grandchildren, John Nelson Temple, Melissa Paris-Tucker and her husband, Brian, Robin Paris, Debra Surrette, Joshua Temple and his wife, Jenny; and seven great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband Nelson, she was preceded in death by one brother, "Junior" Kinzy Grayer, and two sisters, Betty Rice, and Norma Jean Hightower.

Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, at Oak Ridge Memory Gardens in Independence, with Pastor Roger Beach officiating.

In lieu of flowers, those who wish may contribute to the family for help with funeral expenses in care of Lewis-Hoagland Funeral Home, P.O. Box 64, Schell City, MO 64783, 417-432-3111.
