Joyce Simmons Hildebrand, 82

Mrs. Hildebrand, 82, died Feb. 8, 2012 in her home surrounded by love.
Joyce was born in Yukon, Oklahoma on Sept. 2, 1929. She is preceded, in death by her father Sewell Andrew Simmons Sr., and mother Essa Pafford Simmons; sisters Eileen Simmons Schulte, June Simmons Nelms and brother Sewell Simmons.
She is survived by her three daughters Carolyn (David) Corlew, Kathryn (Stephen) Kirkpatrick and Kristine (Lawrence) Klug; grandchildren, who knew her as "GaGa" Taylor Joyce Corlew, Nicholas David Naive and Justin James Klug; two nieces, five nephews, and friends who dearly loved her.
She was a loving, caring Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, and friend.
Joyce attended William Woods College and graduated from Oklahoma University, Suma Cum Laude.
She was an actress in California where she lived for over 25 years having parts in movies, TV, commercials, and playing lead roles in small theatre. She loved the stage!
Joyce then started an event and party business, Exciting Events, where she produced corporate events, business openings, weddings, and many elaborate 'Hollywood/Beverly Hills' parties.
She traveled the world extensively her most favorite places were Egypt visiting the ancient pyramids and Africa on Safaris. She loved the African wildlife.
Joyce moved to Tennessee and enjoyed a position as a concierge at Embassy Suites in Nashville for seven years until she retired.
She enjoyed the position so much because she was such a people person and loved dining in fine restaurants and being able to recommend so many .
She loved her critters and had dogs or cats as companions all her life. Hummingbirds and flowers surrounded her each spring on her deck. Her love of a warm fire burning in winter coupled with a Frank Sinatra CD, a chat with a daughter or friend made her world happy.
She was an avid reader and would read two or three hardbound books a week. The local library would save for her the new best sellers that came in weekly. Where Joyce went so did a book. She had so many fascinating stories to tell of her life in California and all of her travels and adventures. She was an elegant lady from the ground up.
Joyce will always be remembered as being such a wonderful friend to so many. She always kept in touch with her family and friends near and far. She had a natural zest for life, "joie de vie", as she would say (joy of life), people and places to see, quick to laugh, and brought out the best in others. Special thanks to her two wonderful friends and caregivers, Tosha Lincoln and Tyra Brandt.
In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to New Leash on Life, PO Box 247. Lebanon, 37088-0247 for rescue/adoption, or the Mt. Juliet Library, Mt. Juliet Road, Mt. Juliet 37211.
