Tuesday's Child is Full of Grace and that would describe Bonnie Jean Simpson perfectly. Simpson, 75, flew home with angel's wings, passing away on June 30, 2017, from complications of pneumonia and Alzheimer's. Simpson was born Bonnie Jean Zuck on Tuesday, August 26, 1941. She was raised in Liberty, Missouri on Bonnie Lane, a street named after her. After being raised in Liberty, she lived in Colorado and California before returning home to raise her children and working hard as a single mother. She was involved in her church at Pleasant Valley Baptist, her community of Glenaire Village as committee woman and many children's lives as their caregiver and babysitter. Simpson was revered in this role and she considered her biggest accomplishment her family, immediate and extended. This includes her beloved neighbors and friends, Don and Janice McDonald, who were beautifully present in caring for Simpson until her final hours. Simpson is survived by her three children, Jennifer Lee, Christopher Haug and Alison Simpson-Smith. Grandchildren Nicole and Leiani Haug, Trevor and Saxon Lee: Rowan, Arthur and Aliza Smith. Great grandchildren Alice Bracken, Zachary Younts and Carson Lee. Aunt to many and friend to all. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America to find relief for this terrible disease. Services will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at DW Newcomer's Sons White Chapel in Gladstone, Missouri at 11a.m., with visitation beginning at 10 a.m. (6600 NE Antioch Road, Gladstone, MO 64119).
