In Loving Memory of
Amy Slauson

On April 2nd, after a 14 year battle with Multiple Myeloma, Amy Slauson passed away peacefully and quietly at her home in Edwardsville, IL, surrounded by loved ones.

Amy was born on February 20th, 1960 in Roseville, CA to the late Joe L. Simms and Betty A. (Heisner) Simms. She is the beloved sister of Tad Simms and Katie Simms of Citrus Heights, CA, who were also by her side as she passed away.

Amy married Robert Slauson on April 25th, 1983 in Sacramento, CA. They spent 34 years raising a beautiful family of five children. Their oldest son, Joshua Luke Slauson, lost his own battle to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1986, at the age of 9.

Her love and devotion lives on with her children, son Henry Slauson of Edwardsville, IL, daughter Cloey Slauson of Valley Park, MO, daughter Molly Slauson of Edwardsville, IL, son Eli Slauson & wife Jamie Slauson, and her grandson Owen Slauson of St. Louis, MO. Owen was her one and only grandchild. She adored him and cherished every moment she spent being his “Grammy”.

Amy had so many more cousins, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, and friends that loved her. Amy had a special way of making everyone around her feel loved, welcomed, and important in her life. She will be greatly missed by everyone whose life she touched, and was an exceptional wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend.

A Celebration of Life for Amy will be held at the Le Clair Room at 600 Troy Road in Edwardsville, IL 62025 on Sunday, April 30th from 2pm to 5pm. We invite anyone who had the opportunity to know Amy to come celebrate and remember the wonderful person she was. Donations can be made on her behalf to St. Jude’s Hospital or The American Cancer Society.
