SHEILA MARY WALSH PARIZEAU Obituary
PARIZEAU, Sheila Mary Walsh 87, of Wellesley, MA, passed away on October 26, 2016 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born into the Walsh family as the youngest of six close-knit siblings on July 16, 1929 in Buffalo, NY. Her sister Jerry was her lifelong sidekick. Her brother Eddie often said that she was the best of the bunch and nicknamed her "The Franchise." If you happen to see Eddie, have him explain what that means to you (and us). Sheila was determined to be a single working woman until a handsome French Canadian named Doug Parizeau showed up in church and changed her mind with his charismatic charm and sense of humor. They married and started a family, raising their 5 children in Westfield, NJ. When Sheila's husband Doug died when she was 48 years old, she courageously accepted her newest challenge. Jumping into the real estate business with her best friend Joyce at her side, hard-working Sheila put all 5 kids through college. Sheila was a competitor all her life; she loved tennis, card games, puzzles, and any activity that involved her grandchildren. Anyone who knows Sheila probably knows those 17 grandchildren well, as Sheila was their biggest supporter and talked about them all the time. Sheila was so proud of her family. She leaves behind five children, their five spouses (who she loved like they were her own children) and 17 grandchildren: Ernie Parizeau (wife Kim and children Kate, Doug, Molly, and Sam); Sue Frame (husband Michael and children Megan, Andy, and Davis); Doug Parizeau (wife Christy and children Izzy, Louis, and Annie); Will Parizeau (wife Lisa and children Oliver, Charlie, and Wylie); and Sally Tyrie (husband Dave and children Baylor, Jack, Devon, and Reese). A celebration of Sheila's life will take place on Saturday, November 5 at 10am at St. Paul's Church (502 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02482). Sheila's last days were spent at Elizabeth Seton in Wellesley surrounded by caring staff and residents who shared her unwavering faith in God. In lieu of flowers and in celebration of Sheila's life, donations can be made to The Elizabeth Seton Residence, Attn: Lori Ferrante, Administrator, 125 Oakland Street, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481-5338.
