Obituary of Beatrice Edith Simmons

Simmons, Beatrice (Bea) Edith, Oct 1 1926 - May 23 2019.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Beatrice (Bea) Edith Simmons, nee Hartley, of London ON, in her 93rd year, after a long and full life.

Beatrice is survived by her husband Charles Cameron (Cam) Simmons, son Donald Graham of Regina SK, Daughter Betty Graham-Stan of Dorchester ON, stepsons William Nixon (Leslie) of Goderich ON and Gary Nixon (Pamela) of London ON. She will also be greatly missed by her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and members of her large extended family.

Pre-deceased by her parents James and Inez Hartley, brothers Myron Hartley and Roy Hartley, sister Hazel Marlatt, stepson Gordon Nixon and son Gregory Nixon.

Bea thoroughly enjoyed playing cards (to win) with family, friends and others with the courage to take her on. She was well known for her excellent sewing skills and willingness to help others with their stitching mishaps and needs. Back in the day she was known as "Last Frame Graham" among her bowling team members.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held on June 5 2019, 2:00 - 4:00 pm at The Optimist Hall, 1653 Richmond St. Dorchester ON.
