Our beloved mother, Inez Simpson, left for heaven June 5, 2017, surrounded by family. Mom was 97 years young.

Mom was born Aug. 16, 1919, in Sibley, MO, to Minnie Lee and Lewis Huntsucker and was raised with 7 brothers and 2 sisters.

Mom and Dad married in Liberty, MO. They proudly celebrated 73 years of marriage before Dad left for heaven.

She was a longtime employee at Lake City Ammunition Plant until her retirement.

Mom was a passionate quilter. Through the years, Mom and Dad enjoyed camping and time at the lake. Together they were avid sports fans of football and especially baseball.

Always endearing to her heart were her siblings whom have passed-Harvey, Edwin, Tom, June, Elwood, Carl, and Betty.

Celebrating her life are sons Jack Simpson and wife Sue, Richard Simpson and wife Vicky, and Greg Simpson and wife Kris; grandchildren Kelly, Angela, Jody, Jared, and Blake; great grandchildren Andrew, Owen, Easton, and Camden; sister Minnie Firkins and husband Ray and Barbara Huntsucker.

While our hearts are heavy at this time, we are comforted in our faith and feel blessed and honored to have had the best mother in the world.

Visitation will be on Monday, June 12, at 1PM and service will begin at 2PM at Floral Hills. Graveside service immediately following at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens.
