Melissa “Missy” Ann Johnston, 52, of North Little Rock went peacefully home to her Heavenly and Earthly Father’s on November 9, 2020. She was born in Stillwell, Oklahoma on January 30, 1968 to Melvin Eugene Faddis and Paula Jean O’Neal Faddis. She is preceded in death by her mother Paula and father Melvin.
Missy will always be remembered as a wonderful mother to her daughters, lovingly referred to as “the girls”. She was the Leader of their Girl Scout Troup and made the greatest memories during their many excursions. She was also recognized as “Amazing Dugout MOM” on The Lady Bucs Softball Team. Whatever “the girls” were involved in, Missy was their biggest fan. She worked at Dillard’s Corporate Office for nearly 35 years and was always thankful for a career where her opinion was valued.
She is survived by her husband, Kenneth Johnston; her daughters Makenzie Grace Johnston, Autumn Hope Johnston, and Amber Faith Johnston; her siblings Paul David Faddis (Rita) and James Edward Faddis (Kim); as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
We would like to thank the wonderful nurses and doctors at Davita Dialysis (Dr. Rasheed) and UAMS who cared for her over the past several years. She will be missed so much by so many.
In light of the current health concerns, Missy’s family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers if you are not able to attend the service.
