After a courageous, three-year battle with cancer, Simone Helen

home in DeFuniak Springs, Florida at the age of 61.

A long-time resident of Oak Ridge, she graduated from Oak Ridge High
School in 1971 and worked as an LPN at Methodist Medical Center after
receiving a nursing degree from Roane State Technical Community
College. Later, she returned to school and graduated from Roane
State's Massage Therapy program. A gifted athlete, Simone was a proud
member of the Oak Ridge Rower's Association and competed in many
regattas where she won multiple medals.

She is survived by her life partner, Mark Lassen; her daughter,
Courtney Nicole Farquharson; her son, Nathan Taylor Farquharson;
daughter-in-law, Ashlie Blair Farquharson; granddaughter, Paisley
Jayne Farquharson; her brothers, Larry and Greg Jones and her sisters,

Her parents, Roscoe and Micheline Jones, of Oak Ridge, preceded her in death.

Services will be held Sunday, November 2nd at Martin's Funeral Home in
