Patsy Sue Grimes Simcox is now at rest with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She passed away May 11, 2023, at the age of 74. She devoted herself to God first and then to her family as a wife of 55 years, a Mom and a Nana. In all these roles she was a shining example to all. Her walk with Christ especially while dealing with cancer, brought strength to others. She has always had the spirit of giving. As a career, she was often referred to as a ” professional volunteer “. Patsy unselfishly gave to her church by volunteering countless hours in ministry functions including teaching, mentoring, serving, and singing, being especially drawn to caring for the babies. For many years she was a volunteer for Hospice, a pink broomstick lady for Cancer Services, and helped at Salem Pregnancy Center and other organizations. She helped lead and host a lady’s bible/book study at her home for many years and has given unwavering support to her husband’s ministry Nehemiah’s Few. Patsy designed, sewed, and hand stitched over 400 quilts to give away. She gave of herself sharing her Christian faith and teaching quilting to many. We request that if you are a recipient of one of her quilts that you bring it for display during visitation and funeral.
