    MONTPELIER — Debra Lee Bizzozero, 60, of Hill Street, died Saturday, June 7, 2014, at Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin after a yearlong battle with cancer fought with all the spunk, perseverance and determination Deb was well known for.

    Born on Dec. 15, 1953, in the Barre City Hospital, she was the daughter of Caroline (Sironi) and Aldo Bizzozero, of Montpelier. She graduated from Montpelier High School in 1971. At the time of her diagnosis, she was working on her degree through the Community College of Vermont.

    In 1972, she married Randolph Gonyaw Jr. in Montpelier, and they later divorced. In 1983, she married William Snovich Jr., who predeceased her in 1988. Deb met David Scott in 1991, and they have been together since, both enjoying many of their summer weekends at their camp on Shadow Lake.

    Growing up in Montpelier, Deb worked for a number of local businesses and agencies including Vermont Legal Aid, National Life Insurance Co., attorney Mary Skinner, The Times Argus, and Fountains. Most recently, she had worked for the Community College of Vermont and the law offices of Theriault and Joslin. She also worked as an area Realtor.

    Survivors include her partner of 23 years, David Scott, of Montpelier, and their Lab, Petey; her two sons, Randolph Gonyaw III and his partner, Annabel, of Barre Town, and Kasey Gonyaw and his wife, Ashley, of Tucson, Arizona; two grandsons, Adam and Ryan, of Tucson; a sister, Mary Maxfield, and her husband, Terry; a brother, Michael Bizzozero, and his wife, Rachel, all of Barre Town; and many nieces and nephews. Very important to Deb and not to be forgotten are her very close friends, affectionately known as “The Bitches.”

    She was predeceased by her parents and husband William Snovich.

    Her bubbly smile and sharp wit will be missed by all who knew her.

    A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held on Friday, June 13, 2014, at 11 a.m. in the Hooker and Whitcomb Funeral Home, 7 Academy St., Barre. Family and friends may call at the funeral home on Friday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service. Interment will take place in the Berlin Corners Cemetery at the convenience of her family.

    Contributions in her memory may be made to the Central Vermont Humane Society, 1589 Vermont Route 14, East Montpelier, VT 05651.
