Kim Marie ( Pickering ) Villanueva was born on June 29, 1958, at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth MA, her parents Ralph † and Mary Pickering, siblings Mary † & Rick, Ralph & Lisa, John & Tracy and Donna & Steve, aunt Pearl Donahue † and aunt Bea † Kanelos, many cousins, nieces, and nephews; Kimmy remembered all birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions.
Kimmy grew up in Quincy & Brockton MA, great student, Quincy High Class 1976, then Cum Laude from Emmanuel College Boston with 2 degrees in May 1982.
Kimmy obtained her Series 7 license and worked for AMEX Financial, but her mind was in the Hospitality. She worked -along with her Mom Mary- at Lily's Piano Bar in Quincy Market ( Faneuil Hall ) Boston. Kimmy then moved to Miami FL working as Bar Tender & Manager for several restaurants. Kimmy returned to Massachusetts, and started a Residential & Commercial Cleaning Business.
In the meantime, we fell in love and started dating; within two years, we got married on May 29, 1998 and lived in Kingston for 22 years. Kimmy made our house a home. We loved having family & friends over all the time!.
Kimmy sold the cleaning company and she went back to her passion: the hospitality business, working at Siros in Marina Bay for 10 years as the Professional Bar Tender she was; Kimmy immediately connected with people and soon she had many "regulars" who, until this day, miss her smile, conversation and, yes her good drinks!.
Kimmy, my best friend, was a very spiritual, kind, and loving wonderful woman who always cared about everyone.
We used to say, we have no children but we have a big family of friends!
Thank you all...
