Ms. Marie Simpkins (Wise) entered into eternal rest on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at her home in Lexington, South Carolina.  Born in Lexington County September 24, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Clarence Simpkins, Sr. and the late Suyretha Davis Simpkins.

Her hobbies were sewing, going on sporting events with her grandson, Aquavious, outings and shopping with her daughter and family members.  Marie always had a beautiful smile.  To know her was to love her.

Those left to cherish her precious memory include:  a loving and devoted daughter – Melody Wise Triplin of the home; a grandson – Aquavious Triplin of the home; a sister – LaChanze Colter of Lexington, South Carolina; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and many sorrowing friends.
