Barbara Simons Davies of King George departed this life on earth and ascended into heaven on Thursday, April 5, 2017. Born in Washington, DC on July 6, 1927 to Roland E. Simons and Anita Hershey Simons Jones, she was salutatorian of the Class of 1945 at McKinley Technical High School in Washington, DC.

She was very active in the King George Woman's Club, where she'd served as President; St. John's Episcopal Church in King George, where she had served on the Vestry and as Treasurer; and The Opp Shop at King George Courthouse. She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Barbara truly enjoyed playing bridge, especially with her local bridge group. She was an excellent cook, loved her yard, and reading mystery novels. She was a good friend to many and will be sorely missed.

Survivors include her husband of 65 years, Frederick Gordon Davies, daughters Pamela Jane Davies (Geoff MacIlwaine) of Waynesboro, VA, and Janet Davies Beebe (Brian Workman) of Lexington, VA, and grandsons William Davies Beebe and Tucker Thomas Beebe, both of Lexington, VA.

A funeral service will be on Tuesday, April 10 at 11 a.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church, King George. The family will receive friends at a reception in the parish house following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Cemetery Fund of St. John's Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 134, King George, VA 22485, or the Boys' Home of Virginia, 414 Boys Home Road, Covington, VA 24426.
