Mary Ella Simpson


Mary Ella Simpson (Hogue) of Quincy lived a happy 88 years and died peacefully on October 6, 2021.

Being surrounded by her family and loved ones brought her so much joy. She enjoyed trips to the beach, going out to eat with a view, and in recent years spending time with her four great grandchildren. She loved to read, especially about the movie stars! Going to the movies was a “treat”! Driving and listening to music like Frank Sinatra always put her in a great mood. She especially loved to spoil her loved ones and was always thinking of others throughout the year as she picked out Christmas presents. She enjoyed writing, and wrote many letters to her daughter in law and pen pal Michele in Las Vegas. And especially loved her trip there with her family in 2007. She passes on a legacy of family traditions that we will forever miss having her a part of.

Elaine Soter of Arlington. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Daniel Plant, Joseph Plant, Stacey Simpson, and Katherine  Kapoutsos.
