Melody Key Obituary

Melody Ray Key, age 64, a resident of Freeport, Florida passed away Friday, February 2, 2024, at her home only two days after she retired from the Walton County School System, where she had worked as a bus driver for almost twenty years. She had driven routes for different schools, as well as for the kids with special needs. Those children with special needs held a unique place in her heart; helping them was a daily joy.  Melody, accompanied by her sister, Tracey, traveled from place-to-place visiting different bingo halls. She truly enjoyed the game of bingo, not to mention the money she pocketed.  She loved her family, and her family loved her, but they affectionately knew she was the boss.

She is preceded in death by one sister, Stephanie Kelly; father, Ray Kilpatrick; one sister, Jeanette Bearjar; one brother-in-law, Joe Lindsey; one nephew, Lee Jensen; and her lifetime companion, Moe Harrison.

Melody is survived by her mother, Nancy Kilpatrick; one daughter, Heather Frazer and husband, Peter; one son, Eddie Ray Daymon; two grandchildren, Trevon and Kemani Frazer; four brothers, Phillip (Terry) Jensen, Bruce (Laurie) Jensen, Mike (Shirley) Jensen, and Timothy Kilpatrick; three sisters, Tracey Lindsey, Penny (Micheal) Chavers, and Tammy (Tim) Manuel; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held Tuesday, February 6, 2024, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Glendale Nature Preserve, 297 Railroad Avenue, DeFuniak Springs, Florida 32433.

Arrangements are under the direction of Davis-Watkins Funeral Home of DeFuniak.
