Along with her parents, she was also preceded in death by her first husband of almost fifty years, Haywood Simpson, second husband, Rev. BW Kallam; son Donnie Simpson; grandson Michael Simpson Jr.; granddaughters, Sharon and Ellen Simpson; brothers, Rev. Jack Nance and Aaron Nance Jr.; sisters, Mary McGee, Stella Moody and Alma Clark.
She is survived by sons, Lee Simpson (Carolyn), Roger Simpson (Kay), Mike Simpson (Peggy), Pat Simpson (Kathy); daughter-in-law, Alice Simpson; stepdaughter, Wanda Stewart; brothers, Maynard Nance and Paul Nance; sister, Sue Nance; 10 grandchildren, Cara, Barbara, Kim, Jill, Alicia, Dalton, Lane, Adam, Drew and Dustin; 18 great grandchildren; 3 great great grandchildren along with numerous nieces, nephews and a loving extended family.

Pat, I just learned from Mom of your mother's passing and just finished looking at her keepsake video. I am sorry for your loss...she was a sweet and beautiful lady and y'all had her for a long time!. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your family growing up and had no trouble picking you out nor trouble picking out Drew and Dustin. It's been awhile since I've seen you and Kathy but I hope you are well! Take care, Sheila Tucker Peace

Thankful for your reunion with loved ones in heaven.

So many memories of you with the grandchildren; Michael, lover of your cold biscuits and watermelon, homemade ice cream and warm banana pudding on Sunday.

Upon our last visit at the June wedding, I miss you too.
