Mary Villas

February 12, 1926

April 5, 2009

Mom was born in Pordenone, Italy. However, her family moved to the United States when she was an infant and grew up in the Bronx, New York City. Her father, Giovanni Cescot was in ill health and died from tuberculosis when she was a small child. Her mother, Dusolina Cescot and her brothers, Anthony, Ermes,and Gaston helped raise my Mom. She met my Dad, Nello in the Bronx when she was 14 and he was 17. They dated for many years and got engaged after my Dad returned from World War II. They married in 1948 and were married for over 60 years prior to her death. She is survived by her beloved brother, Gaston Cescot. She is also survived by her beloved husband, Nello Villas, her sons, Mark Villas, Dr. Bruce Villas, and Gary Villas. She also loved being a grandmother and greatly enjoyed her grandchildren from her son Mark, Mark Villas,Jr. and Beth Villas. Mom and Dad raised their children in Harrington Park, N.J. (a quiet bedroom suburb of New York City) and built a home there were they raised their children. They moved to Ocala, Florida about 15 years ago. Bad health during the last 5 years forced Mom to live assisted living facilities and nursing homes because of Alzheimer's disease. She succumbed to this disease in the morning of April 5, 2009, Palm Sunday. Anyone wishing to help eradicate this disease may make a donation to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America at the following link:
May her suffering be ended and she rest in peace with God in heaven.
