Maureen P. (Brown) Villaras

July 25, 1931 ~ March 17, 2020 (age 88)


Maureen Patricia (Brown) Villaras passed away Tuesday March 17, 2020 peacefully, after recent struggles with dementia. She was the beloved wife of Byron E. Villaras who died on January 20, 1995. She was born in Dracut, MA, daughter of the late Raymond Brown and the late Martha (Christina) Brown.

She attended Dracut schools. Prior to retirement, she worked for the Internal Revenue Service in Andover. In prior years, she enjoyed volunteering at the Reilly School, serving as a Cub Scouts den mother, and taking cake decorating classes. 

A lover of all things to do with her family, she enjoyed making Greek pastry packages for friends, neighbors, and family. She was an avid reader and gardener and spent a lot of time in her yard. 

Maureen leaves behind two loving sons and their families, George Villaras and his wife, Darlene (Tevepaugh) Villaras, their daughters Eleni M. Villaras and Emily K. Villaras, and their devoted dog named Tank; Edward Villaras and his wife, Diane (Raby) Villaras, and their children Deanne Villaras, Byron Villaras, Dante Villaras and Nikki Villaras. Maureen also leaves behind several nieces, nephews, and cousins, and is most thankful for the kindness and love from Marie Wojtas, Kathy Wojtas, and Valerie Duda.

 She was also the sister of the late John Brown and Eleanor (Brown) Duda.
