Eunice Simpson, the mother of O. J. Simpson, was found dead in her home of natural causes on Friday morning, the medical examiner's office said. She was 80 and lived in the Bayview District of San Francisco.

Mrs. Simpson, a former nurse's aide at San Francisco General Hospital, raised O. J. and her three other children in the Potrero Hill housing projects, a cluster of apartments that overlook the old shipyards on San Francisco Bay.

Her husband, Jimmy Lee Simpson, left the family when O. J. was 4, and he died in 1986.

Mrs. Simpson lived in a home bought by her son, who gained fame as a professional football player and broadcaster and was acquitted in 1995 in the killing of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald L. Goldman.

In recent years, Eunice Simpson had arthritis and joint replacement surgery, making it difficult for her to walk. She appeared at her son's murder trial in a wheelchair and used a cane when called to testify for the defense.
