Peacefully in her sleep at the Orchard View by the Mississippi Retirement Home, in Almonte, Ontario.
Celia May Simpson in her 92nd year was the beloved wife of the late Reginald Thomas Simpson, loving mother of Nancy Wallace Simpson (Jim), Fred Simpson (Suzanne), Suesan McKeen (Mike) and Jane Simpson. She was an adoring grandmother and great grandmother.
Celia lived a fun filled life. She loved to socialize and enjoyed everyday to its fullest. Growing up as a fiery redhead with freckles from head to toe, taught her to be a strong independent (sometimes stubborn) individual. She married her high school sweetheart and together they raised 4 children. Starting out in Toronto, moving to Caledon and eventually Hockley Valley. She loved being outdoors. She spent many summers at the family cottage in Muskoka and enjoyed her morning coffee with crossword on the deck or the dock. Celia was an avid pet lover. She always had a dog, cat and various other animals to watch over. She never said no to a stray cat or a foster dog. She loved, reading, painting, gardening, travelling and camping just to name a few. She had many good friends over the years that brought pleasure and joy into her life. She worked in the Public-school system as a Secretary in various schools in Orangeville for 15+ years. For the past few years, she has resided in Almonte, at Orchard View By the Mississippi retirement residence near some of her family.
We wish to thank the staff at Orchard View for their loving care and attention to our mother.
