Dona May King Simmons
~ Together Forever ~

Our dearest Mother, Grandmother, and friend quietly returned home to her Heavenly Father May 22, 2013 in Layton, Utah. It was time for her to reunite with her husband who she missed dearly, along with many other loved ones.

Dona was born December 15, 1925 in Antimony, Utah to Culbert Levi King Jr. and Louisa May Gardner. She married George Elvis Simmons December 10, 1949. Their marriage later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple in 1960, sealing their family together for all time and eternity.

Dona was a proud active member of the LDS church serving as the Director of Genealogy/Extractions and fulfilling many other callings. She also spent countless hours of service building the Kearns 14th Ward Chapel. She left behind a small piece of her heart in Kearns, when she left her dearest friends to move closer to family. Dona was a very classy lady who always took pride in looking her best. She was somewhat old fashioned but had a youthful style and way about her. She had a direct yet keen personality and was a good judge of character. She enjoyed spending time with family reminiscing & telling stories. Family was everything to her – we always came first.

She is survived by Sons: David, Michael (Lori); Daughter: Laura Stoker and Grand "Daughter" Genique (Eric Hancock); 11 Grandchildren and 14 Great Grandchildren. Preceded in death by husband; George, Son; Jeffery, and Grandson; Justin. Funeral services will be held Tuesday, May28, 2013 at 11:00 am at the Kearns 14th LDS Ward Chapel, 4232 West 5015 South, Kearns, Utah. Family and friends may call Tuesday morning from 9:45 to 10:45 am prior to services at the church. Interment at Valley View Memorial 4335 West 4100 South, West Valley City, Utah.

The family would like to thank all those at Legacy Village for the help and special care she received.
