In Loving Memory of Shirley Simmons

Shirley Simmons

Shirley Simmons died on April 7, 2013, after a two-year battle with cancer. She was an incredible mom, grandma, and friend. She will be missed by all who knew her. She was a special person who touched so many lives in so many ways. When she wasn’t traveling the world or volunteering for organizations like “Meals on Wheels,” you could find her walking at her favorite place, Descanso Gardens. Descanso Gardens holds a special place in our hearts for our family. We spent many good times and hard times walking through the many paths of the gardens. Toward the end, it was my mom’s only venture out of the house to visit the gardens she loved. In lieu of flowers, we are asking family and friends to make donations to the Fire Family Foundation in loving memory of Shirley Simmons. The funds collected will be used to purchase a bench at Descanso Gardens as a memorial to her. We love you and miss you mom.
