“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the

house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6

Sharon Diane Dubard-Simmons, at the age of 59, departed her life on August

17, 2017, at Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge in Columbia, South Carolina.

She was born January 16, 1958 in Columbia, South Carolina to the late Sanders

Goodwin, Sr. and Della Mae Goodwin (her adoptive parents). Sharon’s early

education was in the public schools of Richland County in South Carolina. She

graduated from Eau Claire High School.

Sharon accepted Christ at an early age. She was a member of Lion of Judah

Church in West Columbia, South Carolina. She faithfully served in many

capacities to include: Deaconess, Praise Dance Leader and Prayer Leader

Warrior. Sharon worked at the Midlands Center and Palmetto Health Richland

Hospital for many long years.

Sharon was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Next to God, her family

was the most important thing in her life. Her love for the Lord was evidenced

by the many lives she touched and the love shown to everyone who knew her.

Sharon loved family vacations and spending time with family and friends.

Sharon was predeceased by her biological parents, Nathaniel

Hudson, Sr. and Shirley Mae Harris; her adoptive parents,

Sanders Goodwin, Sr. and Della Mae Goodwin; her brother,

Gregory Breland; and sister, Gwendolyn Breland.

Her memories will be cherished by her devoted husband

of 17 years, Edward Simmons; two daughters, Della

(Ulysses) Brown, Velvet (Jason) Harris; one son, Ricky

Dubard, Jr; her grandchildren: Jazmine Gibson, Tyana

Tucker, Jateria Harris, Isaiah Brown, Jason Harris, Jr., Jase

Harris and Ja’vel Harris; six sisters: Jessie M. Seals, Rena

(Floyd) Hughes, Juanita Banks, Valerie (Torey) Scurry and

Tara (Steve) Fields; five brothers: Sanders (Louise)

Goodwin, Jr., Oscar Goodwin, David (Maxine) Goodwin, Carl (Sherry) Breland

and Nathaniel (Angelica) Hudson; and other loving relatives and friends, all of

whom will miss her dearly.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

I have chosen to follow the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard his call.

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work.

Tasks left undone must stay that way.

I’ve found the peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joys.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Oh yes, these things I too will miss!

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

I’ve cherished many times, good friends

A loved one’s touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undo grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God called for me to set me free.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

My soul is resting; it’s such a blessing,

I am free indeed.
