Gwendolyn Simmons, wife of Enoch Simmons, Sr., died March 18, 2021 in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

Gwendolyn Albena Simmons was born on August 11, 1951 in Charleston, SC to Henrietta Smalls. She was raised by her grandparents Mr. Bias and Henrietta Fell. Gwen or Gwennie, as she liked to be called, married Enoch Simmons, Sr. on June 24, 1972. They moved from Charleston to Mt. Pleasant to raise their family and spent the rest of their married lives here.

On April 6, 1975 Gwen chose to dedicate her life in baptism and became one of Jehovah's Witnesses. This decision, along with marriage and becoming a mother, was a very important life choice that had a pivotal impact on her. Her love for Jehovah was expressed in the way she lived her life and the way she treated others. Gwen's love for children was apparent by the way she cared for her own children, grand-children, young cousins and the children she helped raise during her career as a housekeeper.

Gwen had a kind, loving and affectionate personality that was felt by many people who knew her. It was especially felt by her coworkers in her second career as a deli clerk. She had the gift of patience to service customers and work well with others. So, be it family, friends or coworkers, she will be missed by all.

She is survived by her husband of Mt Pleasant; daughter, Leaunda Antia Simmons of Mt. Pleasant; son, Enoch Simmons, Jr. of Mt. Pleasant; three grandchildren, Kashamere S.D. Simmons, Janae D. Simmons, and Javeah Prioleau; sisters, Donna Smalls, Debrah Fell, Pamela Fell, Sheila Fell, Poolia Smalls, and Sabrina Smalls; and brothers, Richard Fell and Ernest Fell.

A memorial service celebrating Gwen's life will be held via Zoom on Saturday, April 10th at 12 noon. (Meeting ID: 699 036 458 Password: 726578)

In memory of Gwen, donations may be made and mailed directly to the West Mt. Pleasant Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1142 Dingle Road, Mt. Pleasant SC 29466 or you may visit
