Obituary for Alice Brady Simpson

July 6, 2018
Avon Lake, Ohio

Loving Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother


Alice Brady Simpson (nee Kronk) of Avon Lake passed away Friday, July 6, 2018. She was born October 26, to parents Jesse and Maude (nee Miller) Kronk in Arensburg, Pennsylvania. She was the youngest of eleven children. Alice grew up in Crucible, Pennsylvania and graduated from high school in 1944.

Alice was a vibrant, fun-loving woman who adored her family, especially her children and grandchildren and was a second mother to many of her children's friends. She was an avid reader, enjoyed shopping, and loved her late night movies. She enjoyed traveling and spontaneous adventure and was ready to go at a moment's notice. More than anything, Alice was an exceptional mother and grandmother who gave unconditional love to all her family.

Alice is survived by her six children, Alicia Hoskinson (Kevin), Richard Simpson (Marie), Adele (Dennis) Brown, Rachelle (Joe) Newlin, Bonnie Simpson (Brian Lance), Sandra (Rich) Kuhn; 15 grandchildren, Jessica (Fadi), Jenna (Alyshia), Corey, Kaylie, Brandon, Jayme (John Paul), Ralph Brady, Anna, Jack, Mitchell, Maggie, Stephanie (Michael), Bobby (Kelly), Billy, Bryan (Melinda); and 13 great-grandchildren, Eli, Lucy, Ruby, Teaghan, Sophia, Sebastian, Estella, Bailey, Billy, Logan, Sterling, Vivienne, Vanderleigh, and several nieces and nephews.

Preceding her death was her beloved husband she married in 1959, Ralph Simpson, who passed away in 2007. She was also preceded by her parents and her ten siblings.
