  1. Philip, So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother! Always remember the “good” times at Irish Grove with your Mother & Father! Two good people who shared their love of God with us in Middletown! Lots of good memories! God be with you and your family!

  2. I spent my youth near the Simpsons and Irish Grove Presbyterian Church. Rev Simpson lead me to saving grace in Christ, and Mrs Simpson was one of my Sunday School teachers. Many, many good memories there, and I am thankful for their Christian influence and faithful service to the Irish Grove community. Our condolences to Philip and family, and our assurance of our prayers. God Bless, Mike and Kathy Stone Springfield, Ohio

  3. So sorry for your loss. I’ll always remember Irish Grove and your mother with great fondness. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time and hope you have lots of memories to sustain you.

  4. I remember Mrs. Simpson from community and church events in Middletown, a sincere, kind lady.

Leave your Condolence
