Mrs. Simon died of brain cancer Monday at Claremont Rehabilitation & Living Center, Buffalo Grove.

She learned the business after working for another children's store. She also taught high school English and history in Niles as a substitute.
A native Chicagoan, Mrs. Simon graduated from Senn High School. She received a degree in history from Roosevelt University.
Mrs. Simon lived in Skokie while raising her family and moved to Buffalo Grove eight years ago.
