VILLEMAIRE The miraculous life of Debbie Villemaire ended July 20, 2014 in Naples Florida. She was 64. Daughter of the late Arthur and Agnes (Doucette) Villemaire, beloved wife of Gus Braz, sister of Sheila Meehan (Jim), Andy Villemaire (Anne), and Lorraine Russell, the late Paul, Arthur, Billy, and Ronnie, twin of the late Dianna Villemaire. Debbie defied death for 24 years after defeating lung cancer, several heart attacks, and other health issues. She died at peace with her life and with joy and gratitude for the time she spent among her friends and family. She was a political activist in her youth and in more recent years counseled others in Al-Anon. She was an inspiration to everyone she knew, whether briefly or over decades. She is survived by her daughters Samantha King (Doug Trees), and Andrea Wingert, her son Anthony Maggio (Michelle), her grandchildren Bob King, Kevin, Wingert (Mallory), Tyler Wingert, Tate and Elliana Maggio, Megan and Zach Trees, her great granddaughter Rylee Nevin, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and too many friends to count. We will be remembering her life on Saturday, August 2nd from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the 24 Hour Club, 1509 Pine Ridge Road, Naples FL. A ceremony will be held at 10:00 AM, Sunday August 3rd at Naples Memorial. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to D.O. Believe Foundation. Friends in Boston also plan a memorial there later in the Fall.
