Melanie Ann Simmons

March 13, 1975 ~ May 22, 2020 (age 45)


Melanie Ann Simmons, 45, of Benton, Arkansas passed away May 22, 2020. She was born March 13, 1975 in Little Rock.
Melanie was a member of Grace Church and was active in several ministries. She was an avid Disney fan. You may have seen her riding around town in her red, convertible, Minnie Mouse Mustang-complete with red sparkly bow and a license plate with MINNIE1 on it! Melanie went on several trips to Disney, but her favorite was one her entire family accompanied with her. Her contagious laugh and smile will always be remembered. Melanie captured being a kid at heart and loved life. Melanie adored Socks and Goofy, her fur babies, who were her pride and joy.
Left behind to cherish her memory are her loving husband, Kevin Ashly Simmons of Benton, Arkansas; mother, Claudia Randall of Bryant, Arkansas; father, Vincent McNamara; siblings: Michael Vincent McNamara of Bryant, Jon Randall and wife Kelly of Oklahoma, Matt Randall and wife Felicia of Oklahoma, Jeanne Elizabeth Hale and husband Chase of Bentonville, Arkansas, and Janna Edwina Kirby and husband Claude of Alexander, Arkansas; best friend, Clarissa Wallace of Little Rock; fifteen nieces and nephews who were her life and meant the world to her; and a host of family members and friends who love Melanie and will miss her always.
