Leo V. Gittzus

July 9th, 2015

Leo V. Gittzus, age 97, a long-time resident of Wilmington, passed away on July 8, 2015 at the Woodbriar Health Center in Wilmington.

Leo was born on January 1, 1918 on his family farm in Bedford; he was the cherished son of the late John and Julia (Shuman) Gittzus. Leo was raised in Bedford and graduated from Lexington High School.

Leo went on to further his education at Fitchburg State College earning a Bachelors Degree and his Master’s Degree in education from Boston University.

Leo enlisted in the United States Navy on March 21, 1942 in Newport, RI during WWII and was assigned to the USS Lindsey. During one of the battles at sea the USS Lindsey was attacked by a Kamikaze pilot and the entire front end of the ship was damaged. Leo didn’t think of his own safety but that of his fellow shipmates and his beloved ship; Leo’s courage and selfless service was most important in the assistance of getting the ship to safety near Iwo Jima. Although many sailors died or were seriously injured that day and those who survived were sent home right away Leo chose to stay an extra 50 days to repair his beloved ship. Leo was honorably discharged on December 7, 1945 in Boston, MA, after more than three years of faithful and loyal service to his country and was notably decorated as a hero following his bravery during the attack on the USS Lindsey.

Upon returning home from his military service, Leo started his career teaching and education in Provincetown. Leo taught in Provincetown for a few years before taking a teaching position at Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown. Leo’s dedication, kindness and compassion for his students led him to stay at Perkins for a few years. Leo eventually went on to teach Industrial Arts in the Lexington Public School System for over thirty years and retired as the Director of the Department. Leo’s enthusiasm toward his students and the changes in the education system along with his gentle nature made him not only a favorite teacher but a wonderful co-worker as well.

While teaching at Perkins, Leo met and fell in love with a fellow teacher Maurine Nilsson. Leo and Maurine were soon inseparable and the best of friends. The couple married and eventually settled on Glen Road in Wilmington where they spent more than 50 years. Leo loved his home on Glen Road and could often be found outside tending to his gardens and sending out a friendly hello to everyone who walked past; he always had that great smile and friendly disposition.

Leo and Maurine shared a passion for teaching, volunteering, and always lending a hand to those less fortunate. In their spare time they enjoyed travelling all over the world but were especially fond of their trips to the West Coast. Leo and Maurine cherished the time spent with their family and friends always eager to share stories of the places they had been and the different cultures they had learned. Leo and Maurine loved to spend time at their second home in Vermont, nicknamed “The View.” The nickname suited the home just right because of its breathtaking view. Leo and Maurine loved to host special functions at The View, including the annual Kiwanis weekend away where a great time was had by all. The house was situated on over seventy acres of land, which allowed for the growing of Christmas Trees. Leo and Maurine brought their special Christmas tree home to Wilmington each year. Leo had many fond memories with his beloved Maurine and has missed her dearly since her passing in 2004.

Leo loved his community; he was very active in many organizations and made countless friends along the way. Leo was always willing to give of his time and talents and eager to help whenever and wherever needed. Leo spent many hours volunteering for various fund raisers and loved to remain involved; whether it was attending a meeting or working one of the functions, he would be right there with a smile. Leo was instrumental in forming the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington and was a Charter Member who had almost perfect attendance at the Kiwanis meetings for more than 40 years. During the Wilmington Fourth of July celebrations, Leo could always be found under the Kiwanis tent behind the popcorn machine with a kind word to everyone. Leo also was proud to be a Mason, an involved member of the Friendship Lodge, and an active member of the Shriner’s Organization. Leo found great pleasure in doing for others and helping out worthy causes; he was truly an kind and amazing gentleman.

Leo will be remembered fondly as a beloved resident of Wilmington; his kind and gentle manner made him very well-known to all. Leo will be sorely missed by his large extended family and network of friends.

Leo was the beloved husband of the late Maurine (Nilsson) Gittzus, cherished son of the late John and Julia (Shuman) Gittzus, dear brother of the late Emma Czulada, Raymond Gittzus, Ruth Wenzlow and John Gittzus. Leo is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Anna (Iannello) Simmons

June 30th, 2015

Anna Simmons, age 87, of Wilmington, passed away surrounded by her loving family on June 29, 2015.

Anna (Iannello) was the beloved wife of the late George Simmons for 65 years, devoted mother of William H. Simmons & Pamela Pearson of Salem, NH, George H. Simmons, Jr. & Andrea DiFlumeri of Peabody, Pat M. & Helen Simmons of Monroe, CT and MaryLou & Richard Gair of Medfield, loving grandmother of Jason Simmons, Billy Simmons Jr., Stacey Simmons, Kyle and Sammar Simmons, Corey Simmons, Shannon Gair, Kelly Gair and Colleen Gair, great-grandmother of Jenavive Simmons Teleshevsky, cherished daughter of the legendary late Pasquale and Santa (Fiandaca) Iannello, dear sister of Tina & John Centracchio, Loretta & John Townsend, and Carol & Tony Reppucci. Anna is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Anna was born and raised in East Boston and was a lifelong resident of Wilmington, Mass. In her early years, Anna worked to support her immigrant parents, turning over her Cynthia Sweets paycheck to them each week in order to help the family.

She met her husband George (the love of her life) at a YMCA dance. He tapped her on the shoulder asked her if he could have the next dance, and they have been dancing together throughout life ever since.

After raising her four children with George, Anna earned her Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree from Salem State College; long before women her age did so. After receiving her degree, she was promoted from being a secretary in the Wilmington Public Schools to becoming a teacher of English and Business at Wilmington High School. Anna worked in the Wilmington Public School system for over 25 years and strongly believed in education and civic responsibility.

She became involved in the League of Women Voters, the Wilmington Planning Board, the Bargaining Committee, and many other national and locally run organizations. One of her favorite involvements however, was establishing and organizing the Wilmington Dance Party, which held monthly dance parties for well over 25 years. It was the first of its kind, and it was very well attended by dancers of all ages. Anna’s true calling was inspiring others to take action.

She was the first woman to walk down the aisle of Saint Thomas Church without a hat during a time when women were required to cover their heads before entering the church, and she rallied her daughter and her daughter’s friends to wear pants to school on the first day that girls were not required to wear dresses or skirts to public schools. She believed that you had to get into a system in order to change it for the better, and she did. She led by example as she considered the true instrument of change to be our own personal actions. She believed that we needed to take responsibility for our actions and she did. No cause was too small to help and she did it all in a determined, soft-spoken manner with impeccable integrity. The world is a better place for having had her in it, and she will be sorely missed by the those lives she touched.

Family and friends will gather at the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62), Wilmington, for Visitation on Thursday July 2nd, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Thomas of Villanova Church, 126 Middlesex Ave., Wilmington at 12 noon.
