MaryEllen's Journey

She started her life as MaryEllen Lee.

Jack calls her Merellen.

Ann, Mary, Perry, Robert, Artie, Cely, Nancy, Danny call her Mom.

I call her Grandma and, all our babies call her GG. We all called her on Mother's Day.

MaryEllen is survived by..no wait, all of us are INSPIRED by MaryEllen.

MaryEllen enjoyed spending time with her Red Hat ladies whenever she had a chance.

She knew how to help things grow.

She enjoyed caring for her many houseplants and outside flowerbeds.

Her passion for growth stretched beyond the garden to her children, grandchildren, and her great grandchildren.

She lived a life full of trials and fortification.

The strength that she built over the course of her life courses through three generations.

We were all taught to be strong; and guided through life by firm, wise hands.

Countless teenagers found refuge in the homes of the Simms clan.

Acceptance and guidance ran through our homes like streams through nature's meadows.

We can't imagine our lives without our matriarch, but

we are well prepared to carry on the tradition of

Love and support she bestowed upon us.
