Mary A. Simpson, 75, of Butler passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side on Monday, June 13, 2022.
Mary was born on March 15, 1947, to Alberta and George Crouch in Cherry Valley, Clinton Township. She attended Knoch High School before moving to California with her family where she later graduated from Montebello High School in 1965.
She was the owner of a restaurant in Saxonburg, where she quickly became notorious for her pie-making skills. Her creativity also showed in her many artistic endeavors. In addition to this, she spent many years dedicated to the unrequited love of her life, Jon Bon Jovi.
Though she was never one to steal the spotlight, her presence was always known with the peacefulness she held. She was always ready to offer a kind, calm word and a listening ear to all who needed it. She was a hard worker, a selfless woman and a generous soul. Mary was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
