  Mrs. Doris Ann Simmons, age 77, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at her daughter’s residence after an illness.

  Born in Bennettsville, SC, on December 22, 1939, she was the daughter of the late Robert Lee Simmons and Rachel Barrett Simmons. She was a graduate of Bennettsville High School and a member of the Bennettsville Church of God where she enjoyed worshiping with her church family. Doris was a lady who won the friendship of all who met her by her kindness during her many years of employment at the A & P Grocery Store in Bennettsville. After the A & P closed, she began working for the Parks Galaxy Grocery Store where she would retire as a cashier.

 Her hobbies included flower gardening, and shopping to accessorize her wardrobe to always look her best. For many years, she was an avid, early-morning walker. Her greatest joy was watching Lifetime Movies and eating popcorn with her precious great-granddaughter, Brooke. She had the heart of an angel and was always willing to help anyone especially the elderly.

 She is survived by her devoted daughter, Debbie Ann Brown of Bennettsville; a granddaughter, Rachel Michelle Feldner of Raleigh, NC; a great-granddaughter, Brooke Feldner of Bennettsville; a special nephew, Robert Simmons of Wilmington, NC; and by her two fur babies, Freckles and Shasta.

  Funeral services will be held 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at Burroughs & Cooper Funeral Home Chapel with burial following at Rogers Cemetery in McColl. The Rev. Donald Deal will officiate. The family will greet friends at the funeral home from 1:00-2:00 P.M. prior to the service.

 Mrs. Simmons was preceded in death by her brothers, Robert Simmons, Tommy Simmons, John Berry Simmons and James Simmons.

Memorials are suggested to: The Marlboro County Humane Society, Post Office Box 135, Bennettsville, SC 29512.
