Obituary for Judith Rose Simpson

Judith Rose Simpson, 74, of Unionville, Michigan (formerly a lifetime Metamora resident), died peacefully Monday, October 28, 2019.

Judith was born September 8, 1945 in Dearborn, Michigan to Edward and Helen (Werbicky) Brecht. She graduated from Lapeer High School, class of 1963. All through school Judy worked alongside her family on the Brecht Farm in Metamora - she literally was a "farm girl". On July 6, 1963 she married the love of her life James Jerome Simpson at the Pilgrim Presbyterian Church in Metamora. Judy attended Pilgrim Presbyterian for many years. Together, Jim and Judy raised three children in Metamora - passing on to each of the kids her passion and loyalty to family. Judy was an incredible wife, mother and grandmother her entire life - she was the consummate homemaker. She felt at her best cooking meals for her family. Judy religiously attended almost every sporting event her kids and grandkids participated in through the years (including a lot of college football games). Judy was very accomplished at billiards, enjoyed bowling and golf and loved her occasional trips to Michigan casinos. Jim and Judy loved their years in Unionville - particularly sunsets on the bay and birdwatching. They also loved their seventeen winters in Auburndale, Florida.

Judy is survived by her husband, Jim Simpson of Unionville; two children: Julie (Scott) McCallum of Lapeer and Dan (Sarah) Simpson of Metamora; sons-in-law: Jeff Hooker of Metamora and Joe Pillars, Jr. of Lapeer; eight grandchildren: Conner (Megan) McCallum, Payton (Monica) McCallum, Colin (Micaela) McCallum, Ian (Jenna) McCallum, Joseph "J.T."

Judy is also survived by many nieces & nephews and great nieces & great nephews. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Jill Hooker in 2016; great grandson, Brody Scott McCallum and her aforementioned parents.
