Eleanor "Jayne" (Harmon) Simmonds

August 29, 1931 ~ May 13, 2022 (age 90)


Eleanor “Jayne” Simmonds, 90, of Rulo, Nebraska passed away Friday, May 13, 2022, at her home in Rulo Nebraska, surrounded by her family.  She was born August 29, 1931, in Falls City, Nebraska to Nathan and Mary (Cochran) Harmon.  Eleanor Jayne married the late William “Bill” Milton Simmonds August 28, 1950 in Rulo Nebraska.

“Jayne” loved her family more than anything.  She enjoyed growing flowers and watching her birds, but her biggest joy in life was taking care of children.  Jayne was very active in the community, serving on both the Rulo Cemetery and Library Boards for a number of years.  In later years, she always made sure that the library was opened early in the morning so that the kids would have a place to wait for the school bus. 

Jayne is survived by her daughters: Becky Simmonds OD Rulo, NE; Joni (Vernon) Rhodd of Rulo, NE; son Keith (Becky) Simmonds of Troy, KS; 10 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Bill, a daughter Paula, four sisters and one brother.

Jayne will be cremated with a private Celebration of Life to be held at a later date by the family.

Memorial Contributions will be designated by the family at a later date.
