Leslie Alana Simmons, 56, of Taylor went to be with her Lord on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, after a brief battle with cancer. A party celebrating her life will be held at a later date.
She was born Jan. 31, 1960, to John and Phyllis Winn in Crosbyton, Texas.
Leslie had lived here in the White Mountains for the last 10 years and worked at Summit Regional Medical Center.
She was very close to her nieces and nephews. She enjoyed helping dress her nieces, she herself being a very fashionable person. She enjoyed spending time with them, and she always gave the very best birthday and Christmas presents.
Survivors include her mother, Phyllis Winn of Taylor; her sister, Gina Hockett of Taylor; and her many nieces and nephews, who were so dear to her.
Silver Creek Mortuary of Taylor was in charge of the arrangements.
