Anne H. Simmons: April 3, 2016

PLAINS — Anne Howell Bagwell Simmons was born on Aug. 17, 1925, at home at 217 Thomas St. in Plains, Georgia. She was 90 years old when she died on Sunday, April 3, 2016. Anne graduated from Plains High School after the 11th grade, spending all of her grade school years there.  Her first job was at Manhattan Shirt Co.  where she worked as an inspector for 30 years. She married Millard Franklin Simmons in 1945, when he returned from World War II. After retiring from Manhattan, she opened a florist shop in Plains and enjoyed preparing beautiful floral arrangements for those in the area. The one passion in her life was her family. She loved her family more than anyone else in the world and they loved her in return. She spent most of her later life as a homemaker enjoying the pleasant small-town life of a southern rural town. All who knew her admired her greatly and she will indeed be sorely missed.
Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at Lebanon Cemetery in Plains, Ga., with the Rev. William Stanley Ballew and Jack and Diane Holbrook officiating. The family will greet friends at the graveside following the service.  The family suggests donations be made to Plains United Methodist Church, 305 W. Church St., Plains GA 31780.
Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Mill and Gloria Simmons of Plains; a brother and sister-in-law, Dr. James and Cindy Bagwell of Plains; three nieces, Victoria Bagwell Kelley and Travis of Americus, Peggy Howard Jordan of Marietta and Lynn Jones Hudson of Phenix City, Ala.; one nephew, Brad Bagwell and Betsy of Atlanta; two grandchildren, Rhett Simmons and Jessi of Americus and Paige Simmons of Macon; and one great-grandchild, Milly Simmons of Americus.
