Octavie Marie Simeon, white, mother, grandmother
and beloved friend was born on the island of St. Barts
on March 10, 1892. She came to St. Thomas as an infant.
Octavie, better known as Zozlne, married the late
Pierre Simeon, known to many as Black Pierre the butcher,
on July 15, 1913. She was naturalized July 8, 1959.
She was also a member of Saint Anne's Society. She
raised seven of her own children and several of her
grandchildren. Zozine loved them all. This love was
exemplified by her own humble way of providing for
them and her constant concern for each, and their
families. She was charitable, understanding, patient
and kind. Needless to say, she was forgiving even to
the last moments of her life.
"Let the little children come to me" (St. Luke 18:16).
Zozine did Just that by teaching all her children to
pray; especially so during the last few years with her
little grandson "Rickle". Each morning and night she
would call him to her side and together they prayed and
We must accept the will of God. Zozine lived a
long life for which we should thank God. She played
and laughed. She suffered and cried. Most important,
above all her troubles, Zozine kept faith and prayed.
Our comfort is that she had accomplished her mission on
earth and has now gone to a greater place prepared for
her with God in His Heavenly Kingdom.
May the Lord grant us the strength to continue
life in peace and love as she has taught.
May Octavie Marie Simeon rest in peace.
