Mary Carolyn “Carol” (Icenhour) Simon
Carol Simon was welcomed into the arms of her Savior on June 11, 2022 at the age of 85. She was born on Oct. 3, 1936 in Lenoir, NC to Sherman and Mary Lee (Hartley) Icenhour. Carol and her family moved to Toledo, OH in 1950 where she attended Woodward High School. She married her first husband in 1954 and was blessed with three children. On Nov. 28, 1964, she married Robert Simon in Toledo where they raised their blended family.
Carol will be remembered for her legacy of faith. Her greatest desire was for her family to know Jesus the way she did. She shared her faith with everyone and was a beautiful example of His love.
Family time was very important to Carol. She cherished the memories of camping with Bob and their children when they were young. Hospitality was her love language. Over the years, Carol hosted many family gatherings welcoming everyone into her home to enjoy her wonderful southern cooking.
She worked several different jobs in her lifetime, but her gift was caring for and helping others in their time of need.
She is survived by her children, Ken (Janice) Zraik, Kathy (Rick) Pidcock, Mike (Michele) Zraik, Rob (Renee) Simon, Steve (Sue) Simon, Ricky (Sue) Simon, 16 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren, as well as her brother-in-law John (Karen) Simon.
