Simone and Marcel farmed for many years just outside of Ridgetown where they raised their sons Dell Ameel & Kathy Miron who live in Dutton and Albert Ameel who passed away in 2002. They were the proud grandparents of Jodi & Justin Smith of Tilbury, Jeff & Amanda Ameel of Chatham, Todd & Jenn Ameel of St. Thomas, Tracey & Mike Vanderlip of Rushton’s Corners and Tammy & Dave Richards of Dresden. They were also the proud great-grandparents of Tyler, Colin, Riley, Sadie, Kyle, Peyton and Bentley. She will be missed by Odiel & Audrey Ameel of Ridgetown and by her nieces and nephews.
It was Simone’s wish that cremation would take place and that a graveside service would take place.
