Melissa Marie “Missy” Graver, 53, of Tower City, passed away Saturday, June 3, 2023 at the Geisinger Medical Center with her husband and daughters by her side, following a courageous six month battle with breast cancer.
Missy was born in Pottsville on July 29, 1969, a beloved daughter of the late Marie Hause Morgan, who passed away in 2005.
She is survived by her dad, Gurney “Skip” Rabuck (Jayme), Williamstown, and her dear aunt, Edith Rabuck, who was an extremely important part of her life. Missy is also survived by her husband, Robert “Bobby” Graver, Jr., to whom they would have celebrated 33 years of marriage July 14; two daughters, Alyssa Graver (Nick), and Chelsea Graver (Kyle); two grandchildren, Carson and Kaydence; two brothers, Ronald and Matthew Rabuck; her father-in-law, Robert Graver, Sr.; two brother-in-laws; several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She was a 1987 graduate of Williams Valley High School.
Missy had worked for Tower Sales/Top Star Mini Market for over 16 years. She gave up this job for the best job of her life – being a devoted grandmother to her two grandchildren whom she adored.
Missy was a very active member of the Tower Porter Improvement Organization, where she volunteered countless hours for her community. She was instrumental in the Kids Clubs Program and Halloween on the Midway. She was also very involved with the Williams Valley PTO.
She will be remembered for her love of the holidays and having her home decorated. Halloween was her favorite holiday, and her house always stood out. She enjoyed shopping, yard sales, camping, and her trips to Wildwood, New Jersey. Above all else, Missy’s husband, daughters, and grandchildren made her life complete.
Her family will receive friends and family on Thursday, June 8, 2023 from 6-8 PM at the Chapel of the Dimon Funeral Home, Tower City.
