Ethel Janet Simpson of Nevada passed away peacefully at the age of 95 on March 14 after a good long life.


She passed due to complications stemming from a fall on Nov. 6 and subsequent major surgery. Janet resided at 402 5th St., number 229, at the Meadows Apartments. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri, where she married Jube A. Simpson right before he went overseas to fight in North Africal and Italy in WWII (and later Korea). During her marriage, Janet lived in Missouri, Japan, Georgia, Germany, California and Iowa for the past 47 years. Her experiences also included working for the Farm Bureau, Walgreens, Brandeis, Younkers and HyVee. She will be missed by her son, Ron Simpson, and her daughter, Connie Patrick, and their family members. Janet loved her family and friends, and enjoyed traveling and the company of others.


There will be a private family ceremony later this summer. Condolences can be mailed to P.O. Box 62, Colo, Iowa 50056.
