She was a well known social worker who started her career at Catholic Charities in Baltimore and placed over a thousand children from all over the world into loving homes.

In 2016, she was convinced by a friend to move to Pahrump to become the lead social worker for Nye County schools. She and her husband, Tom, loved this community and quickly assimilated into the community before she became ill. Dr. Simpson is well known for her extensive travel and her encouragement for children and families all over the world. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 5461 Manse Rd., Pahrump.
