Edra Mae (Young) Simmons

February 13, 1936 ~ May 2, 2018 (age 82)

Edra “Mae” Simmons, age 82, of Webster Springs passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at Webster Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. She was born February 13, 1936, in Webster County, to Myrvin Young and Ada Jack and was a lifelong resident of Webster County.

Known to her family as “Mammaw”, she will always be remembered for her kind heart and the unconditional love she gave her family. She had a special talent for painting and decorating her husband Woody’s crafts, loved country music (especially Alan Jackson), and made a potato soup so good that her table would be filled with her children and grandchildren as soon as word got out she had made it.

Mae is survived by her 5 children: daughter Vickie Sabola of Ohio, sons David (Sandra), Roger, Jeffrey (Donna), and Gary Simmons, all of Webster Springs. She is also survived by twelve grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Howard (Ruth) Young, Arlene Hines, Cellene (Phillip) Harden, Terry (Linda) Jack, Linda (Aaron) Cowger, and Karen Cutlip; and many other extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Donald “Woody” Simmons, and brothers and sisters.

Friends may join the family for Graveside Services on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 3:00 PM at Hodam Creek Cemetery, Hacker Valley with Pastor Joe Clutter officiating.
