Born in Winthrop, she was a lifelong resident of Revere and an alumna of Revere High School, Class of 1949. For over 55 years, Betty was “the Avon Lady” who had clients, not only in Revere but in many North Shore surrounding communities. Betty treated her work, not only superbly, but maintained a personal connection to her many clients. Those friendships would last throughout the years. She received many awards and citations from The Avon Company, for superior achievement and dedication. Only recently, due to failing health, did she stop working. Her dear late husband, Peter S. Simone, who passed away in August of 2004, was a tremendous help; sorting, packing and delivering the orders, along with maintaining his own full time work. The couple, on a family level, were legendary, for their love of Christmas, especially shopping and decorating. They would begin in January to prepare for next Christmas. As they arrived home with presents, they would wrap the treasures, for their four children, six grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Friends and relatives loved visiting their Revere home and often referred to it as “Santa’s Village”.

Betty was the devoted mother of Chris Simone & wife Patricia A. of Revere, Dawn E. Stanwood & husband Jeff of Amesbury, Gregory P. Simone & Lynn M. Ristino & husband Paul all of Revere. Cherished grandmother of Jeffrey M. Stanwood & wife Jess, Jillian R. Collins & husband Jeff, Jennifer L. & Katelyn E. Ristino, Gregory P. Simone Jr. & Victoria E. Simone. Dear sister of Francis “Frank” M. McLaughlin Jr. & wife Fay of Wilmington. She is also lovingly survived by her 2 great grandchildren, Jaxon & Joelle and many faithful nieces and nephews. Interment will take place in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody
