The couple met at a bowling alley and were inseparable ever since. They raised two boys, traveled the world, and became well-respected members of their community in Bakersfield, California.

Two weeks ago Don Simpson was taken to the hospital for a broken hip, but his health quickly started to deteriorate. His family brought him home to be with his wife, who had been battling cancer for several years.
