November 26, 1935 - February 12, 2021
On February 12, 2021, Margaret Angeline Acker Simpson (born November 26, 1935) left this earth for her heavenly home. Margaret is survived by her husband of 67 years, Lt. Col. Charles Edwin Simpson. They were both from Columbus, Mississippi, where she graduated from S. D. Lee High School, Class of 1952 and attended MSCW (MUW). She was a proud Army wife traveling extensively with her husband. They settled in Harlem, Georgia where they lived for 45 years. For the last few years, they have resided in Marshall Pines, Evans, Georgia. Margaret is predeceased by her parents Bentley and Margaret Acker, and three sisters Virginia Acker Edwards (Gerald), Lillian Acker Brown (Wayne) and Christina (Tine) Acker Coleman (Carl). She is survived by her four children, Darlene (Faith) Bandre, Deborah (Debi) Mangham-Shacklett (Brian), Thomas (Tom) Edwin Simpson, and Donald Timothy (Tim) Simpson (Johnna); 12 grandchildren, and 21 great grandchildren. Margaret loved the Lord and used her God-given gifts of hospitality, mercy ministry, and evangelism in Taiwan and Ukraine. Her greatest talent was memorization. She knew countless Bible verses and hymns; learned Chinese and Russian, so that she could speak fluently to those she discipled. Her greatest love was her family and leading others to know her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She enjoyed speaking at Christian Women’s Clubs and church events. She was very involved for years with teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She was very close to her grandchildren; her family was blessed by her life, and she was loved. She will be greatly missed. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to all of the staff at Marshall Pines, Encompass Hospice, and Moore Loving Care, LLC. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Attic Treasures in Harlem, GA or Child Evangelism Fellowship. Funeral service will be held at 1:30 PM on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at Starling Funeral Home, Harlem, Georgia with the Chaplain Jordan Dill officiating. The family will receive friends following the service until 3:00 PM. Interment for Mrs. Simpson will be held at a later date in Arlington National Cemetery.
