Sally J. Simmonds, 79, of Niles and formerly of New Castle, Pa., passed away peacefully, Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at Shepherd of the Valley in Niles. She was born June 20, 1940 in New Castle, the daughter of Claire and Ruth (McCord) Wallace.
Sally graduated from Mt. Jackson High School and was an excellent ice skater when younger. She lived a charmed life, having worked for the airlines and founding two gourmet clubs. She wrote for a newspaper in Florida and lived in England for ten years. Her career was as an event planner for the National Association of Broadcasters, which brought her in contact with many well-known people. Always one to speak her mind, she was a joy to know.

Moore (Dane) of Seneca, S.C.; a son, Jon “Scott” Campbell of Arizona; her twin grandchildren, Dylan Raymond Moore and Tyler Jo Moore; two sisters, Katherine Boob of Niles and Patricia Margraf (Bill) of New Castle; and many nieces, nephews, and their families.
