Angela Mary (Whisman) Simons

May 20, 1952 — June 3, 2023

Sadly, Angela Mary Simons (nee Whisman) has lost her courageous battle with brain cancer on Saturday, June 3, 2023, in Terre Haute, Indiana.  Angela was born to Hiram Lee & Norma Mary Whisman (nee Gilland) on May 20, 1952, in Noblesville, Indiana. Angela was the only girl in the family, having five brothers—Ronnie, Donnie, Tim, Kenny, and Steve. She was a lifelong Catholic and spoke to God in prayer during quiet moments. Angela was sure to nudge her kids to lean on God, particularly during difficult times. She was married to Sam J Simons, the love of her life & her best friend, on November 23, 1997.

She was predeceased by her loving parents, Hiram Lee Whisman & Norma Mary Whisman; her brothers Ronnie Whisman (2004) & Donnie Whisman (2013); and her nephew Ronald Lee (2019). She is survived by her loving husand, Sam; her children, Carrie Ann Mize (Brett); Jonathan Simons (Emily); Christopher Simons (Numia); Katherine Simons Parvin (Larry); and Julie Coryea (LeRoy); and her granddaughters—Addison, with whom she shared a very special bond, Adrienne, Lillian, Calliope, and Peregrine. She is also survived by Kenneth Whisman (Liz); Tim Whisman (Paula); and Steve Whisman (Carol), as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Angela attended Tipton High School and worked as an administrative assistant for many years before transitioning to a career in interior design. Over the years Angela had many adventures, moving through various Indiana towns, including Atlanta, Tipton, Noblesville, and beyond; in more recent years, she lived in Scituate, Massachusetts, and then Sherman, Connecticut. In retirement, she & Sam bought a beautiful property in Madison, Indiana, which is where they have resided since autumn of 2021.

She had a great love of traveling with Sam, spending time with their basset hounds, antiquing, finding a good bargain at TJ Maxx, and listening to music—LOUD music. Family members remember her always ready to share in a laugh or to make silly sounds and nicknames at them. Each year, Angela was excited and eager to travel with Sam to the Atlanta Earth Festival, which always fell around the same time as Carrie’s birthday; she always looked forward to these events, as she always missed her family when living far away. Angela was a diva and loved looking her best, from her fun fashion finds to the newest organic makeup; she was sure to always look top-notch. While this is true, she also loved to camp, run around outside barefoot, and swim in pools and lakes. She made great efforts to organize neat trips and to get the most out of life. Angela will be greatly missed.

Angela’s Catholic Funeral Mass will be at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 10 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church (340 Mill St, Tipton, IN 46072) with Father Goth presiding.  Burial will follow at St. John’s Cemetery.  Visitation will also be on Saturday, June 10 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. at Young-Nichols Funeral Home (216 W Jefferson St, Tipton, IN 46072).
