Misty was born on April 2, 1981, in Kansas City, MO. She is the daughter of Kenneth Wayne Ferriss and Robin (Schley) Stevens. She married Onnis Newell, Jr, on January 13, 2017, in Excelsior Springs, Missouri.

Misty graduated from Excelsior Springs High School in 2000. She was an avid learner who enjoyed the process of learning more so than the act of graduating. She went to real estate school, massage therapy school, and many other schools where she was weeks from graduating but decided to drop out, in fear of pigeonholing herself into one profession. Misty loved her children, Jake and Bailee; being their mother was the essential job in the world to her. Everyone who knew Misty knew how gracious and loving she was. She had never met a stranger and would always do what she could to make anyone who was around her feel welcome. Some of Misty`s favorite activities, while being outdoors, were fishing, camping, hiking, or mushroom hunting. She brought people together, and her ability to connect and create community around her will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her husband: Onnis Newell, Jr; one daughter: Bailee MayLynn Baxter; and one son: Jacob Lee Baxter; her father: Kenneth Wayne Ferriss; mother Robin (Schley) Stevens, one sister: Samantha Huffman; and four brothers: Wayne Ferriss, Kyle Huffman, Steven (Ashley) Huffman, and Michael Ferriss; and the father of the children: Brian Lee (Tamara) Baxter.
