Misty Wright Herring, age 41 of Jay, Florida, went home to be with her Lord, on Thursday, October 17, 2014. Misty was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on December 4, 1972. She graduated from Tuscaloosa County High School and Samford University School of Pharmacy. She was Supervising Pharmacist for Dura-Med Pharmacy in Jay, Florida, at the time of her death.

Misty is survived by her two sons, Tyler Scott Blackmon, 16, and Zachary Dale Blackmon, 13, of Jay, Florida; her parents James H. and Leah C. Wright of Jay, Florida; brother, Wyeth Wright (Jona) of Monroe, Louisiana; Father and Mother-in-Law, Billy and Janice Blackmon of Jay, Florida; Sister-in-laws Wendy (Wally) Booker and Amy (Brian) Hawthorne of Jay, Florida; Father of Tyler and Zachary, Scott Blackmon of Jay, Florida; and loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, and Nephews.

She was preceded by Grandparents Walton H. and Mary Lou Wright of Northport, Alabama and Wade W. and Pauline G. Crouse of Columbus, Mississippi.

Misty grew-up in Northport, Alabama. She committed her life to her lord as young teenager and lived a life dedicated to serving Him and others. She chose in the tenth grade to become a pharmacist and worked hard and sacrificed to become one. The love and joy of her life were her boys, Tyler and Zac; everything centered around them. She was dedicated to her profession. She chose retail pharmacy because she loved interacting with people and especially her older customers. Misty had a great smile and a kind and tender heart. Like someone said “I could hear her smile over the telephone.” She had a servant’s heart and would go out her way to serve others. As her brother expressed it “She’s the most brave, selfless, loving person I’ve ever known. She is my hero!” She wasn’t a saint, but a woman who put God, family, and others ahead of herself. Misty touched the lives others she came in contact with in a kind and gentle way and allowed God to use her for His glory and honor. A “Celebration of Her Life” service will be held in her honor and memory on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. at Cornerstone Christian Church, 14047 Alabama St, Jay, FL. A visitation will be held on Monday evening, October 20, 2014, from 6-9 p.m. at Cornerstone Christian Church. There will be a short graveside service at Concord Cemetery in Jay.
