  Mrs. Weeks was born August 3, 1948 in Tippah County, the daughter of the late Estel and Vadeen Minor Whitehead. She received her education in the Ashland Public School System and was a valued city clerk for the Town of Falkner for 33 years before her retirement.
  A member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Mrs. Weeks was vibrant, full of life and humor. She was a rebel in a good way and ahead of her time. One who never met a stranger, you always knew what she thought. Mrs. Weeks was ever open to joy and wonder of life with new travels. She liked to have a good time and enjoyed flowers, reading, and sitting on the porch swing.
  Mrs. Weeks had a special love for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She enjoyed sharing quality time with each one. Many words could be chosen to characterize her, as she was, kind, truthful, blunt, fun, a firecracker and a people person.
