McFarland- Hattie Marie Simpson, age 95, passed away on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at Skaalen Home. She was born in McFarland on January 30, 1918, the daughter of Henry and Regina (Evans) Halverson. Hattie graduated from East High School in 1936. On September 21, 1938 she married Morris Simpson. Hattie was a member of McFarland Lutheran Church. Throughout the years, she thoroughly enjoyed all the visits from her whole family. She loved to bake, especially chocolate chip cookies and brownies for when any of her family stopped by to visit. Hattie also taught many of the family to make lefse but nobody could roll it as thin as she did. Hattie always looked forward to going out to eat with family members, friends, and other relatives. When she was able to take trips, she enjoyed going with her friends with the Weekenders and on fall color trips. On TV, she liked to watch the men's UW basketball games and Lawrence Welk. Hattie was a very loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother and will be missed deeply.

Hattie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Morris, in 1987; and brothers, Edmund and Harvey.
