OBITUARY ~ DEANE C. SIMPSON
Deane C. SIMPSON, son of J. Noah and Vinia S. SIMPSON, was born Oct. 16, 1904, on a farm north of Diagonal, Ringgold
county, Iowa, and passed away at the Decatur County Hospital [Leon] on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 1980, at the age of 75 years,
three months and 10 days.
He was united in marriage to Eleanor Faye SACKETT on April 18, 1925, in Bethany, Mo. To
this union was born one son, D.C. Dean lived and farmed in Ringgold county, in later years in the Kellerton area,
until ill health forced retirement from farming in the early 1970's.
Deane was preceded in death by two infant
children; his wife, Eleanor, in 1966, and son D.C. on Oct. 10, 1979. From the time of his son's death, declining
health kept him in the hospital much of the remainder of his life.
Left to mourn his passing are D.C.'s two
sons, Randy and Tim and their mother, Janice.
Services were held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 1, 1980, from Rhoades-Wilson
Funeral Home, Mount Ayr, with Rev. Walter ZARR officiating. Music was provided by Louise MEADOWS, and vocalists,
Francis and Arla McDOWELL. Casket bearers were Wayne ADAMS, Chris PADGITT, John HOFFMAN, Jack PADGITT, Daryl HOLDEN and
J. W. EGLY. Burial was in Rose Hill cemetery, Mount Ayr.
