Wanda J. Warrick, 100, of Quincy, passed away at 9:40 pm Sunday (March 25, 2018) in Good Samaritan Home.
Born November 3, 1917, in Girard, Illinois, Wanda was the daughter of John E. and Lula Duke Hodges. Her early life was spent in Girard. She graduated from Girard Township High School in 1935 and shortly thereafter was married to Paul J. Warrick. The young family resided in several cities in the Midwest as her husband's career with the U.S. Department of Agriculture progressed. They finally settled in Quincy in 1946.
Mrs. Warrick was devoted to her family throughout her life, but also found time for part-time employment and community service, applying her artistic artistic and vocal music talents. She worked at JC Penney and later at Farwell Silk Screening Company and Moorman's Printing Department. She was a founding member of the Westview Women's Golf Association, a member of the Blessing Hospital Auxiliary, and of Senior Citizens Volunteer Voices. Wanda and her husband Paul loved travelling all over the United States as well as Canada and Mexico in their Airstream. She spent her retirement years in Florida with her husband. During her retirement, Wanda was a founding member of the Venice Sweet Adelines, volunteered for 10 years as a cook with Meals on Wheels, and with the Englewood Community Hospital. She was a devoted member of the Vermont Street United Methodist Church.
