Debra Marie Simpson
December 12, 1952 ~ November 14, 2023 (age 70) 70 Years Old
Debra (Dee) Simpson, born on December 12, 1952 in Bronx, New York, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2023. Dee worked in the aeronautics and aerospace industry as a purchasing agent for 30 years. Dee was a loving and compassionate wife of 38 years.
She was an avid cruise enthusiast and had a passion for art including her personal collection and painting as a personal hobby. Dee's amazing Italian meals will be missed by all who had the pleasure to experience them. Her spiritual faith guided her life and her calming nature provided comfort to those around her. Despite living in Florida for over 50 years she never lost her NY accent or NY roots.
Dee is preceded in death by her Mother Rosalie Leonardi. She is survived by her Husband, John Simpson Sr of Titusville; Sons, Anthony Dionisio (Anita), of Bronx NY and John Simpson jr (Jennifer), of Mims; Daughter, Janine Mundy (Dustin) of Bethlehem Ga.; Sisters, Linda Deredurtis (Joe) of Ft Lauderdale Fl. and Toni Bain (Maik ), of Bronx; 8 Grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
She will be missed by so many lifelong friends from all over. She was truly a remarkable woman.
The family would like to thank the caring staff of Hospice of St. Francis.
In remembrance of Dee one of her favorite sayings is "This too shall pass".
