I grew up in Napa and lived next door to Sharon on Pine Street. What a wonderful family they were. I will never forget Sharon and I riding a horse in the field across where we lived and I was riding behind her and we fell off the horse in the field. It kinda hurt but we both got up and laughed. Such a kind and caring person. I am grateful to have known Sharon. Her heart was always full of goodness. May you rest in peace with your Phil.

RIP, my friend, Sharon Simpson. I am sorry I will miss your services, but I offer these thoughts.
Two years ago, my siblings and I reluctantly
conceded that it was time to place my mother in a home where she could receive 24 hour care. It was a tortuous experience for us until we found a place called Elegant Guest Home in Napa. The owner operator was Sharon Simpson. Over the course of the next two years, I spoke with Sharon almost every day regarding the care of my mother. Sometimes, she made me crazy because she was so strict in the rules that she thought best for Mom. But over time, I learned to respect her opinion and grew fond of the lady who greeted me at the front door every day.
Sharon took excellent care of my mother. Mom’s physical health improved and while her cognition and memory declined, Mom was most always happy. Whenever we took Mom out, she was neatly dressed- in clothes that were clean, ironed and approved by Sharon.
Yesterday, when I went to drop Mom off after our Thanksgiving celebrations, I found one of the rooms had been stickered closed. I then discovered that shortly after I had said good-by and Happy Thanksgiving to Sharon that morning she had turned to go back to her room to dress, and then just died on the spot.
I am still in shock. This woman who cared so much for others, worked herself to the bone and died on the job. She is my fourth friend in two months who has passed away suddenly and without warning. She was there and now she is not. There is a huge hole in my heart.
I will forever be grateful to Sharon for showing me how to make sure Mom receives good care. She held us to a high standard and Mom is so much better for it.
Sharon lived in Napa most of her life and we had lots of mutual friends, so we could always chat some tales. I will miss her. I am sorry that her family will not be able to continue to operate Elegant Guest, but I am confident that when Mom moves, I have a greater ability to assist in keeping her in high quality care because of Sharon’s relentless insistence for excellence. Thank you, Sharon. I am forever in your debt. And I miss you already! Rest In Peace, my friend.Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
