Patsy Sue Simcox Obitauary, Death – Patsy Sue Grimes Simcox has gone to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She died at the age of 74 on May 11, 2023. She gave herself first to God, then to her family as a 55-year-old wife, mother, and grandmother. In whatever capacity she served, she was a shining example to others.
Her Christian faith gave others hope, especially when she was facing cancer. She has always been gracious. She was recognized professionally as a “professional volunteer.” Patsy committed many hours to ministry activities such as teaching, mentoring, serving, and singing, with a particular focus in newborn care. For many years, she volunteered for Hospice, was a pink broomstick woman for Cancer Services, and assisted at the Salem Pregnancy Center and other charities.
She helped lead and host a lady’s bible/book study at her home for many years, and she has been a strong supporter of her husband’s ministry, Nehemiah’s Few. Patsy designed, embroidered, and hand stitched about 400 charity quilts. She contributed by teaching quilting and sharing her Christian ideas with a varied range of people. Please bring one of her quilts to the burial and visitation.
Patsy’s father, Homer Grimes, mother, Mildred Coffman Evers, son Kevin Simcox, granddaughter Madison Simcox, and brother, Jerry Grimes all preceded her in death. Michael Rabey, Amber Hindenburg (Erik), Amanda Rabey, Jackson, Berkeley, and Kennedy King survive her, as do Noah and Elijah Hindenburg, her great-grandchildren. Nancy Knox (Mike) and Karen Goodwin attended the service, as did brothers Don Coffman (Denise), Elmer Grimes (Pam), Steve Grimes (Teresa), and a lot of other family and friends.
