Happily, Debs found love again. He met a wonderful woman named Willis Quillin. They were married on March 16, 1944 in Dobrada, Sao Paulo, Brazil. In my mom's photo album, Willis is referred to as her “second mother." I remember her as a loving grandmother.
Willis Quillin was born on July 22, 1921 in Dobrada, Sao Paulo, Brazil. She was the daughter of Max Quillin and Helena Rubinger Rohwedder. Willis passed away on March 31, 1991 in St. Helena, Napa, California.
|Willis Quillin and Debs Webster - November 25, 1943|
Debs and Willis were the parents of one son. They then adopted a young boy while still living in Brazil.
The family continued living in Brazil until 1952, when they immigrated to the United States.
In previous posts I have begun to share the story of how this branch of the Webster family came full circle from the U.S.A. to Brazil and then back again to the U.S.A. The next installment of this story will find Debs and his family on The S.S. Brazil heading to America. I have many vintage postcards from Debs' scrapbook that were purchased along the way, which I'm excited to share with you.
Thanks for reading!
