Dola Marie SIMMONS was born July 26, 1933 in Sheridan, Missouri to Dale and Velma LASLEY; and departed this life March 17, 2001 at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Dola worked as a nurses' aide at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr until 1973. Dola's enjoyments were yard sales, craft fairs, dancing and country music shows, but her greatest devotion was to her loving family and friends.

Dola is survived by her seven children: Regena SCHUSTER of Red Oak, Iowa, Bob SIMMONS of Afton, Oklahoma, Roger SIMMONS of Des Moines, Iowa, Jackie LAIRE of Hastings, Iowa, Rhonda TAYLOR of Pleasant Hill, Iowa, Rebecca HARKLEROAD of Winterset, Iowa and Robi SIMMONS of Creston, Iowa.

Their children's families blessed her with 19 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren.
