Rosemary Simpson

June 28, 1946 ~ December 31, 2019 (age 73)


Rosemary (Bruner) Simpson, 73, of Slippery Rock, passed away on Dec. 31, 2019, at Good Samaritan Hospice in Cabot, PA. She was surrounded in love by her family and friends. 

She was born in 1946 to Ralph L. Bruner and Sara (Blake) Bruner of Brookville, PA. Rosemary was lovingly married to Carl H. Simpson for 47 years, until his passing. She devoted her life to her husband, children, grandchildren, and hundreds of foster children who needed a loving home. 

Rosemary’s hands were often busy with knitting, crocheting, sewing, or other handicrafts. She delighted in being surrounded by nature and her many beloved dogs. She will be remembered for her kind heart and her strength, and will be sorely missed by those who love her.

She is survived by her daughter, Jennifer L. (Aaron) Carlson of Plymouth, MN; a son Ronald A. Simpson of Adrian, PA; a daughter, Beverly (Dave) Dickison, of Butler; brothers Paul E. (Sue) Bruner and Michael D. Bruner, both of GA; and eight grandchildren, Aaron, Ryan, Annika, Henrik, Ryan S., Hope, Haleigh, and Andrew.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and a daughter, Kelly Feevey Tincher.
