Deanna (Brady) Simon passed away Dec. 26, 2021. She was 83. A service was held Dec. 28 at Congregation Rodef Shalom, with interment at Mt. Nebo Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Rachel Kobrin, Rabbi Steven Foster and Cantor Saul Rosenthal.
Born in Lincoln, Neb., Mrs. Simon graduated high school in Rock Island, Ill., and moved to Colorado when she was 19. In 1963, she married Jack Simon. Mr. Simon passed away in 1981.
Mrs. Simon was active in community events, including ORT, an organization that provided training to displaced persons and immigrants seeking a new life. The Simons were founding parents of the Denver Jewish Day School. She also was a member of Rodef Shalom.
“Deanna had strong opinions about politics and the world, and used her feet to march and her voice to promote these ideas,” her family said.
Mrs. Simon is survived by daughters Lorraine Simon of Washington DC, Mickie Simon of Washington, DC, and Shelly Simon of New York; sons-in-law Brian Schwalb and Josh Broitman; and five grandchildren.
Donations can be made to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum or the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
