Simmons Family Cemetery

Virginia Beach (formerly Princess Anne County) Virginia

The cemetery sits adjacent to a curve and across the road from 3000 West Neck Road.  The location, once strictly a farming area, is seeing a rapid increase in development as Virginia's largest city continues to grow to its rural south.  Directions from the Virginia Beach Municipal Center:  Begin on Princess Anne Road.  Turn southwest onto North Landing Road.  Proceed for 0.5 miles.  Turn left on West Neck Road.  Proceed for 1.3 miles.  Cemetery Photographed April 6, 2007 by Chuck Rippel.

Sleep my darling sweetly rest
On your Saviour's loving breast
Though I sigh and grieve for thee
Yet thou art now from suffering free
