July 11, 1941 – April 4, 2019
Romayne Wilson went home to be with her Lord and received her complete healing on April 4, 2019 at 8:00pm. She was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on June 11, 1941 and was the daughter of Wilber Lawrence Wilson (D) and Rosa-May Addason (D). Romayne was the second child of six children three brothers: Emmitt (D), Noel and Westley, and two sisters: Jackie (D) and Rosetta (D). She was married to Jimmie Lee Simmons Sr. (D) and had two children Jimmie Lee Simmons Jr. and Gregory Alan Simmons. Romayne is survived by two daughter-in-law, Jessica L. and Wendy M. Simmons, five grandchildren Aaron, Alisha, Preston, Leah and Clarissa: four great-grandchildren: Rashaun, Lekeisa, Zachary, and Shiloh; along with a host of nieces, nephews, as well as other relatives and friends. Romayne was a strong woman that touched the lives of many. She was by no means a perfect person, but her passion for her family and loyally to friends was undeniable. Romayne came to know Jesus in 1987, she was baptized in Jesus Name and received that baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1987 in Pittsburgh PA. She was a woman of the Word, even after she lost her sight. She loved good preaching and teaching. She was a soul winner and cared about reaching the lost. She loved Jesus and trusted him even when she didn’t understand the “whys” when her health begin to deteriorate. Many times, people would comment about how despite her physical limitation, her worship inspired them to keep moving on with God. Romayne was a hard worker she received her GED and started doing domestic work. She was known for being a great cook and baker and passed that passion to her younger son. She also became a private duty nurse and cared for the elderly. She lived in Pittsburgh PA until 1999, after the death of her youngest sister, she moved to Tacoma Washington where she lived until 2012. She moved to Virginia to be with closer to her youngest son and grandchildren. During her time in Tacoma she worked until losing both her legs and then her sight due to complication with diabetes. The family will receive friends from 7:00-9:00pm Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at Mullins & Thompson Funeral Service, Stafford Chapel. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalms 116:15 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:1-3

My greatest memory is how the family lent their support to Mom/Grandmother. She was always a great presence when she attended family gatherings. You all should be proud to have had her in your lives. Remember that that hole you feel in your heart right now expands with fond memories as you grow older. Keep those memories alive and share them with your children/grandchildren.
