I hadn’t seen Anna since the late 80’s early 90’s when I worked for Gary but remember her as a very nice woman who smiled a lot. Prayers for Gary, Jimmy, Phillip, and the entire family.

My prayers go out to the family of this wonderful lady. I remember her from the times she used to visit her husband, Vincent “Jimmy” Devendra, when he was co-owner/operator of Bellaire Auto Service on Guernsey Street. My dad always bought and serviced his cars with the family, and I got to know them when I was growing up. Now that I’m retired and back home in the area, I continue the family tradition with her son, Gary. Rest in peace, Mrs. DeVendra. You deserve it.
