Malissa “Missy” Dawn Weeks, 49, of Warsaw, passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2021, at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois.
Missy was born on February 15, 1972, in Keokuk, Iowa, the daughter of Terry Weeks and Maureen Maloney. She graduated from Warsaw High School in 1990, and worked for many years at Methode in Carthage. Missy was a fixture of the Warsaw community, and you could often find her walking down Main Street or visiting with her friends at the Geode Apartments. Missy had a vibrant and happy personality, and brought joy to everyone wherever she went. In her free time, Missy enjoyed crafting, gardening, mowing and her adult coloring books. Family was important to Missy, and she cherished the Sundays she spent with her father and the road trips she took with her mother and sister, stopping for Culvers or Frosties along the way. Missy also loved animals, especially dogs.
