OBITUARY ~ D. C. SIMPSON

D. C. SIMPSON was born Dec. 17, 1940, to Dean and Eleanor SIMPSON on a farm near Caledonia, Iowa, and departed this life suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 10, 1979, in Burlington, Iowa.

On July 25, 1959, D. C. Was united in marriage to Janice STRINGHAM and this union was blessed with two sons, Randall Edward and Timothy Andrew.

D. C. was preceded in death by his mother and infant brother and sister.

D. C. was a dear and loving husband and father and was never too busy to help a friend. All of his life was spent in and around Kellerton and Mount Ayr, except for 15 years in Kansas City and Independence, Mo., working at one of his vocations he was best in, auto mechanics.

After moving back to Kellerton, he farmed for a short time, then D. C. and Janice opened their own business in Kellerton. This business, being successful and easily handled by Janice and the boys, D. C. decided he would like to continue a life-long dream - driving a semi-truck. This was something he thoroughly enjoyedand was doing at the time of his sudden death of a heart attack.

D. C. will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Janice; sons, Randy and Tim; his father, Dean; sister-in-law, Kay PETERSON and family; sister-in-lwaw and brother-in-law, Roger and Joann NURNBURG and family; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ron and Irene HINSHAW; an uncle, Alden SACKETT in California, and a dear cousin, Shirley HOLDEN and husband, Daryl, and a host of friends.

When I Must Leave You
Helen Steiner Rice
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears.
And hug your sorrow to your through the years.
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name,
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hours in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!

Services were held Saturday, Oct. 13, from the United Methodist Church in Kellerton with Rev. Walter ZARR officiating and Varner-Watson funeral home in charge.

Organist Mrs. Weldon MEADOWS and vocalists Mr. and Mrs. Frances McDOWELL provided music. Casketbearers were John WORTHINGTON, Charles MICKAEL, Chester MUNYON, Charles GORMAN, Harold ADAMS and Chris PADGITT. Honorary bearers were Bill EGLY, John HOFFMAN, John BROWN, Randy JOHNSON, Daryl HOLDEN and Wayne ADAMS. Burial was in Maple Row cemetery at Kellerton.
