Simone Poppelaars, age 92, of Boerne, Texas, passed away peacefully at home on April 19, 2021, in the care of her loving husband.
Simone was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and married Antoine “Tony" Poppelaars in 1953. They started their life together in Toronto, Canada, and immigrated to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1956. Together, they built a successful custom home-building business.
She was blessed with a wonderful life, and others were blessed with having known her.
She is survived by her loving husband of 67 years, Tony; daughters Linda Poppelaars (Bruce Fein) and Cathy Mitchell (Stephen); son Dan (Carrie); nine grandchildren; one great-granddaughter; and her brother, Roger Aelterman (Sonia) in Belgium.
In these unique times, while we can’t gather, please share a toast in memory of Simone’s life.
Funeral in Texas pending. Private interment in Minnesota. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Simone’s life can make a donation in her name to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
