Cindy Ann Morehead

Cindy Ann Morehead, 59, left to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 26, 2022, after her battle with Multiple Myeloma.

Cindy will be cremated and buried in Illinois City, IL Cemetery with a private service at a later date.

Cindy was born June 27, 1962, to Kenneth D Morehead and Dixie A (Hingst) Morehead.

Cindy retired in March of 2021 from Allsteel, Inc due to her diagnosis on March 19, 2020, of Multiple Myeloma.  She made many good friends during her 16 ¾ years with the company and she loved her job!

Cindy always tried to be a positive person and share her faith in hopes of touching others.  You could often hear her say, God is good and he has a plan and I am not going to argue with him but I will continue to fight to the end!  A few of her favorite songs were “I can only Imagine” by Mercy Me, “Blessings” by Laura Story, and “Scars in Heaven” by Casting Crowns.  If you have never heard these, she challenges you to listen to the words and you will not question her faith!

Cindy loved spending time with her grandchildren, family, and her best friend since 5th grade, Donna DeSchepper.  She also enjoyed traveling and always had a love for animals.

Cindy is survived by her Mother, Dixie Morehead of Muscatine, brother, Rusty Morehead (Tammy) of Illinois City, two sons, Daniel W Sturms (Kassie Hoyt) and Joshua Michael Sturms (Lupita Maria Lopez) both of Muscatine, grandchildren, Jorge Lopez, Alexandra (Ali) Sturms, Hunter York, Michael Wayne Sturms, and nephew Logan Morehead, her friend, Donna DeSchepper,  A couple of aunts, one uncle, and several cousins.

Preceded in death by her father Kenneth Morehead, her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

In Lieu of flowers you can donate to the research for cures for Multiple Myeloma at –   Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation  – This was important to Cindy because her dad and her friend Donna’s husband Joe DeSchepper both passed of Multiple Myeloma and Cindy knew several people who are still fighting this rare cancer.  It was her hope that new treatments could be found to help others.  A person can have this cancer for years and never know they have it so research for new treatments and a cure are very important.

Cindy wanted to say Thank you to all those who supported her in many ways through her journey.  It meant the world to her and if you don’t know Jesus as your personal savior, please talk to someone that can help because she wants to see you all in Heaven!!
