On Sunday, Aug. 26, Virginia Sue (Susie) Simmons, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 65.
Susie was born June 28, 1953 in Kinmundy, Illinois to Steven and Fern Mulvaney. She received her Master’s degree in Education from the University of Arizona and was an educator for nearly three decades in both Tucson and Kingman, Arizona. On Sept. 7, 1985, she married Kent Timothy Simmons.
She was a model Christian in lifestyle and shared her faith regularly serving in Sunday schools, worship teams and Bible studies. By all accounts, Susie was honest, patient, kind, forgiving, and nurturing – a true model of Galatians 5:22-23.
An excellent teacher and well-respected by her peers and colleagues, Susie helped and guided the course of many students and teachers to becoming successful and impactful. She loved children and especially her grandchildren. The beach was her favorite place to be whenever she traveled.
She was preceded in death by her father, mother, three brothers and one sister.
She is survived by three brothers, her husband; Kent, and her four adult children; Deborah, Kelley, Sarah, Holly, several nieces and nephews, eight grandchildren; Kayla, Caroline, Emily, Lauren, Bryce, Tucker, Joshua, Abigail, and one great-grandson; Landon.
Susie will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Her funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 1 at 11 a.m. at College Park Baptist Church, 1990 Jagerson Ave., Kingman.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Susie Simmons Memorial Fund through Canyon Community Church in Kingman, Arizona at canyon-church.com.
