Remembering Piper Simmons
ICPSR is mourning the loss of a true gem, ICPSR data steward Piper Simmons, who passed away on Jan. 21, 2022. Piper retired in 2019 after providing ICPSR with over 32 years of service and dedication to ICPSR and the University of Michigan. Simmons’ most recent roles at ICPSR was as a member of the Project Management and User Support, unit and as a member of the Acquisitions team. Piper played a key role in helping depositors, assisting researchers with data management plans, and establishing ICPSR's acquisitions leads workflow. She will always be remembered for her passion and knack for "finding data depositors in a sea of lost data."  We will miss Piper’s big smile her warm, positive energy, kindness for all her colleagues, and a seemingly never-ending supply of interesting life stories.
