Our loving and devoted mother, Elizabeth "Betty" Simon, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, March 6, 2010. Mother was born in Detroit on March 15, 1931. She attended McKenzie High School in Detroit.
On June 12, 1948, she married the love of her life, the boy next door, Allen L. Simon.
He preceded her in death in 1992 on their 44th Wedding Anniversary.
Together, they were blessed with five children.
In June 1963, the family moved to Kingman and enjoyed many wonderful years. Betty was a charter member of Grace Lutheran Church. She enjoyed dancing and spending time with her family and friends.
Mother is survived by five children: Arthur (LaRee) Simon of Gilbert, Alene (Ray) Bell of Phoenix, Corene (Bill) Jordan of Phoenix, Kathy (Rick) Chambers of Kingman and Barbara Silva of Phoenix.
She is also survived by eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Also surviving her are brothers Chuck Pollitt of Detroit and Larry Pollitt of St. George, Utah.
She also left behind many special lifetime friends both in Michigan and Kingman.
We look forward to the day we will all be reunited for eternity.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 13, at Grace Lutheran Church, 2101 Harrison St.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to KRMC Hospice, 1790 Sycamore Ave., Kingman, AZ 86409 or Grace Lutheran Church, 2101 Harrison St., Kingman, AZ 86401-4730.
