DIXFIELD – Simone ‘Chickie’ Porter, 83, of Dixfield, passed away after a long fought battle with COPD on Nov. 20, 2018. Simone was born in Rumford, on Jan. 29, 1935, the daughter of Albani Breau and Irene (Cayer) Burns of Rumford. Simone married the love of her life and best friend, Richard “Dick” Porter in 1962. This year they celebrated 56 years of marriage.

Simone touched many lives and will be remembered as a wonderful, loving woman who absolutely adored her family. She enjoyed her crafts, visiting with friends and family, along with her trips cross-country to more temperate climate during winter.

She is survived and will be greatly missed by her husband, Richard Porter of Dixfield; daughter, Karen Labbe and companion, Kim of Florida, sons, Tim Roy and wife, Sally of Mexico, Gary Porter and wife, Lisa of Texas; as well as many grandchildren; and great-grandchildren.
