Missy enjoyed a childhood full of riding horses and playing with
her younger sister Lesley. In between weekends of foxhunting, she
earned her Bachelor of Arts in Art History at Washington College.

developed, and ran the Field of Dreams Therapeutic Riding Center
for children with disabilities. Missy greatly enjoyed the time she
spent as a member of the Potomac Hunt Club, the Monocacy Garden
Club, and Boyds Presbyterian Church, as well as the time she spent
with her beloved friends and many, many animals. There is no time
she loved more than the time she spent as the mother to her daughter,
Celeste. She is survived by her daughter, as well as her sister
and brother-in-law, Lesley and Paul Dangerfield, and their daughter,
Stratton. A private family service will be held to honor her life.
