Mary Simpson (Lorenz)

Obituary of Mary J Simpson (Lorenz)

Age 69, passed away Thursday, January 28, 2021. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sibling, and friend. Mary was a graduate of Cudahy High School in 1970 and served 4 years in the U.S. Air Force. She was an active member of her church, and would speak of Jesus’s love to everyone she met. Mary’s talents also included volunteering at Global Recordings Network, being a teacher’s assistant at Rancho Community Pre school, and enjoyed ushering for the Temecula Theater Group. Saying Mary attracted folks by her energy and excitement was a huge understatement. You would never forget you met Mary! From the pharmacist to the local retailer, everyone knew her. She also enjoyed traveling around the world, and loved to see God’s creation on display. But the loves of her life were her family, especially her two daughters, Olivia and Maria. Preceded in death by her father, Michael R. Lorenz, and brother, Michael C. Lorenz Jr. Survived by her mother, Phyllis Lorenz; daughters, Olivia Myre (Oscar), Maria Lachapelle (Ryan); siblings Patrice Vecchio (Jim), Irene Fojtik (John), Colleen Smith (Tony), and Katie Patrick (Jeff). She has 5 grandchildren, Chloe, Cora, and Oscar V Myre, Brynn and Piper Lachapelle as well as many nieces and nephews and friends. Service to be determined.
