Patricia Simpson Obituary

In Loving Memory of Patricia Odeal Simpson

Patricia Odeal Simpson, 79, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, passed away peacefully on Sunday,
February 25, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on August 2, 1944, in
Phoenix, Arizona, to the late Carl Lovell and Odeal Kirby.

In 1970, Patricia met the love of her life, Ronald, in Fresno, California. Patricia was
blessed with two wonderful sons, Douglas and Edward, from a previous marriage, and
together with Ronald, they welcomed another son, Gary, into their lives.

Throughout her life, Patricia dedicated herself to caring for others as a professional
family caregiver. Her love and compassion touched the lives of many. In 1997, she
retired from her career as an Administrative Assistant to various companies to focus on
raising her beloved grandchildren. Patricia's nurturing spirit extended beyond her family,
as she was actively involved in her local church community. Her talent for music,
cultivated from a young age, brought joy to many as she played the organ and piano
during church services.

Patricia was predeceased by her grandmother, Lora Kirby, her parents Carl and Odeal
Lovell, and her brother Danny Lovell. She is survived by her devoted husband, Ronald
Simpson, her sisters, Jerlene Palumbo and Darlene Steenburgh, her sons, Douglas
Sutherland (Lynne), Edward Sutherland (Paula), and Gary Simpson (Gale). She loved her
grandchildren Amber, Jacob, Justin, Mallory, Kyle, Emily, Madison, Grant and numerous
great-grandchildren who will carry on her legacy of love and kindness.
A private celebration of Patricia's life will be held at her family home on Friday, March 1,

Patricia will forever be remembered for her unwavering love, compassion, and the
countless lives she touched with her kindness. Patricia's faith in Jesus Christ and her
commitment to sharing His love with others left an indelible mark on the hearts of all
who had the privilege of knowing her. May she rest in eternal peace in the arms of her
