She united with the First Church of God at an early age. Daisy was retired from Cargill/Butterball in Ozark. Daisy was a fun-loving person. She was a graduate of the class of 1964 in Gray Rock at Booker T. Washington High School. She moved to St. Louis, Missouri after graduating where she met her husband, Roy Ludgood. Soon after marriage they moved back to Gray Rock. Daisy loved to play cards and loved to make people laugh and always joking around. She loved her family and friends.

My sweet sweet Ms Daisy.. you melted my heart the first day I met you when you transferred from Ashton. I knew you had the heart & soul of an angel. The more I visited with you & cared for you, the more I grew to love you. You fell in love with my daughter Kaitlyn & never missed a chance to ask how she was doing, especially when I told you she was pregnant. You worried & worshipped her through out that pregnancy & couldn’t wait to see that baby! Even though it was either by pictures & videos in my phone, the frames I brought you that you were so excited to get hung on the wall so you could show off or when she would bring the baby to your window & you could see him & talk to her on the phone. The smile from ear to ear & the way you lit up is priceless memories to me. Your forever in my heart & I know you’ll keep watching over us from Heaven. Your wings were ready but my heart was not! RIP my sweet angel baby! I love & miss you so much!
Praying for God to comfort you during this difficult time.
Thoughts and prayers,We love you Mary Ellen Tammy and Neal Wade
You really touched my heart, my dear friend. There is a special place in heaven for you. I miss you already.
So sorry to hear of Daisy’s passing. She was a very special person and I’ve loved her from the moment I met her. Prayers for your family during this time.
