“You only live once. But if you do it right, once is enough.”
– Mae West
Vilma Vieras Reyes transitioned from this earthly realm due to complications of her cancer treatment on April 14, 2021. She was surrounded by her adoring husband, Michael Alfred Anchor, and her three loving daughters, Frances Vieras Blanc, Monique Vieras Munson and Erika Vieras Frey.
Vilma was born in Caguas, Puerto Rico on May 11, 1948 to her mother Maria Luisa Guzman (95) and her late father, David Reyes. She was the oldest of three lively sisters including Ileana Reyes Huseman and her half-sister, Iria Reyes Valladares.
Vilma first moved from her homeland of Puerto Rico to Biloxi, Mississippi after her marriage to the father of her daughters, Doctor Frank Vieras Alejandro This is where they began their new life in the United States. As Frank was in the Air Force, the couple moved to various states and eventually settled roots in Bowie, Maryland, the place Vilma happily called home for the rest of her days.
During the early years of her career, Vilma enjoyed nourishing and feeding the sick and eldery with her work as a dietician for a variety of hospitals and nursing homes. Her passion for helping others later transitioned to a new career as a real estate agent. This is where she thrived. She had a passion for finding people their perfect homes. This allowed her to not only have dedicated clients, but create an abundant community of new friends.
As a shrewd, self-sufficient business woman, she transformed her real estate knowledge into a profitable family business that allowed her to build the life of her dreams and to spoil rotten her 5 grandchildren: Khyla, Gregory, Thalia, Kian and Maxwell - and her furry grandchildren, Ziggy, Marley and Chloe.
Anyone who had the great pleasure of knowing Vilma knew that she had a larger-than-life spirit and had a laugh that could fill the room. She had a sense of humor rivaled by no one and could make a new friend in seconds. She was a fiercely loving mother and incredibly generous friend. She was truly one of a kind.
And as difficult as it is to say goodbye, we are grateful that she lived a life full of joy and free of regret. She will be forever missed and we will cherish our mamita/nanalocious/mosi/puddin-face in our memories eternally.
