Are Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany the same person?

Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany (the sister of Lazarus and Martha) are two different people, correct? The woman who broke the jar, was nearly stoned to death for adultery, AND was the first to see the resurrected Christ was all Mary Magdalene- correct?

Thank you so much!
