Jessie Sprague was born January 4, 1935 to Percilla (Stevens) and Oliver Dee Sprague, in Overton Nevada.  She always said she was born “under the Christmas tree”.   Jessie graduated from Moapa Valley High School in 1953.  In 1955 she married Conrad Simmons and they had two children, Michael and Teresa.  They later divorced.  In 1962, Jessie married the love of her life, Wilbur (Pal) Field, who brought with him, his daughter JoLynn.  Jessie was a kind and loving mother to her three children.

Jessie had various jobs throughout her life, but will be remembered for working in the Panaca Market for 36 years.  She made many friends while working there and everyone enjoyed visiting with her while doing their shopping.
