Dorothy Simonds

April 20, 1924 — September 16, 2020

Dorothy B. Simonds, 96, of Trimble, Missouri passed on September 16, 2020, with her son and daughter by her side, at Oakridge Skilled Nursing in Plattsburg, Missouri. Dorothy was born in Orchard Park, Nebraska to Samuel and Lillie Stauffer on April 20, 1924. She was married to Clifton J. Simonds and had two children, Janet K. Simonds and Roger Alan Simonds. Dorothy wanted to be a nurse, but World War II stopped that from happening. After the war, Clifton and Dorothy moved to Southern California. Dorothy, along with Clifton, was active in their church. She was also involved in many women’s groups, promoting women equality on all levels.

She had a career in accounting and management. This career experience allowed her to start Drug Research Development Management in the Midwest after being sponsored by Dr. Dorr, whom she worked with at Riverside Hospital in Southern California. After taking over the Initial DRD MGT location in New Orleans, LA, she opened three locations in Missouri (Kansas City, Columbia, Springfield) and two in Knoxville, TN. Dorothy loved to read, garden, watch sports and western movies, and support her children in advancing their education.

She leaves behind her two children, Janet K. Hasler and Roger A. Simonds; three grandchildren, Susan, Nancy, and Eric J. Bratton; six great grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren.

Dorothy B. Simonds was a positive person and was always helping someone.
