July 12, 1923 - June 13, 2019
She was predeceased by her husband Jack Davies; and leaves behind her children: Larry, Brenda and Stuart (Gail) Davies; her grandchildren, Jackie and Jason Heinrichs, Tara and Bryn Davies, Alison Pham; and numerous great-grandchildren including her best friend Hali.
She was born in 1923 in Liege, Belgium. During the liberation of Belgium from the Germans she met and married a young Canadian soldier named Jack Davies. She came to Canada after the war and settled in Morris. Here she learned her third language (English) and, later in life, travelled the world and read thousands of books.
She was very close to her late sister-in-law, Margaret Zimmerman, whom she considered her sister. She also had a remarkable friendship with her childhood friend, Gusta Van Der Auwera, for over 80 years.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
A special thanks to the nurses at the Morris Hospital for all their help and kindness. Also, a great thanks to her grandson Jason who provided constant love and help, especially in her later years.
Simone was an exceptional mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. We will all miss and love you forever.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Humane Society would be appreciated.
Arrangements entrusted to:
Morris Funeral Home
