Obituary for Joan W. Simpson

July 28, 1932 - December 1, 2016
Castle Rock, Colorado | Age 84


Joan W. Simpson, age 84, formerly of Newark, DE, passed away on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at her home in Castle Rock, CO. She was born July 28, 1932 in New York City, NY, to the late John and Victoria Thorne Demus.

Joan was a secretary at the University of Delaware Honors Program for over 20 years. Strong in her faith, she attended several area churches over the years, the last being Bible Fellowship Church in Newark, DE. She enjoyed reading, especially mystery novels. A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, her love for her family transferred to the kitchen in the great meals that she cooked for gatherings. Her famous lasagna and apple pie will surely be missed by all. She also enjoyed flowers, above all, the roses which were grown in her late husband John's garden. These were displayed throughout their home as decorative accents as a symbol of their love for each other.

She is survived by her sons, John R. Simpson, Jr., and his wife, Carrie, of Castle Rock, CO, and Randall W. Simpson, and his wife, Dorothea, of Elkton, MD; daughter, Kathy Jean Simpson Smith, and her husband Russell, of New South Wales, Australia; six grandchildren, and nine great grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, John R. Simpson, Sr., and two great grandchildren.

A committal service will be held at 10AM on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 in the chapel at the Delaware Veteran's Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE 19701.
