YOUNGSTOWN – James “Gee Gee” M. Naples, 65, departed this life Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, unexpectedly due to a brief illness at St. Elizabeth Health Center, with his daughter and brother by his side.

James was born Feb. 16, 1952, in Youngstown to the late Frank G. and Delores P. LaGamba Naples.

He was a 1970 graduate of Ursuline High School. In his younger years, James was an avid lover of fishing with his grandfather the late Jim LaGamba, he also enjoyed traveling. He was an attendant at his father’s previous business, the Northside Service Station. Those who knew James could attest that he lived his life the way he wanted; it was to the “fullest” and nothing less.

The last five years of James’ life were consumed by what he claimed to be “the best thing that had ever happened to him,” and that was his five year old grandson, Bryson. James acquired a new nick name during this time, that was “PeePaw.” They spent much time together, some of which included pick-ups from school, doing yard work, water fights, fruit roll-up eating contests, practicing golfing and archery in the backyard, simply enjoying each other’s company.

James is survived by his daughter, Victoria Naples and grandson, Bryson Mosley both of Youngstown; a brother, Frank Naples of Boardman; a close cousin, Michael “Dixie” (Lisa) Dominic of Dania Beach, Fla.; and a host of many other family members and friends.

His family would like to thank the ER and ICU staff of St. Elizabeth Health Center for their outstanding service. Per James’ request, no services will be held.

Dear Members of the Class of 1970,
Ten months have passed since our classmate, and a dear friend to many, Donna Giambattista Detwiler, passed away (April 18, 2017).  As a former pediatric oncology nurse at Tod Children’s Hospital, and a person who struggled with multiple myeloma and its effects, Donna was very aware of what cancer patients and their loved ones would face beyond the diagnosis and medical treatment. It was Donna’s wish—dream—that those patients should not walk the cancer journey in isolation. Therefore, she, along with another local cancer survivor, tirelessly worked to establish a self-funding, non-profit cancer wellness center—Yellow Brick Place.  
Yellow Brick Place officially opened its doors on September 15, 2015. Among its services, it offers group therapy, counseling services, support groups, a resource library, educational information and healing therapies free of charge to cancer patients and their caregivers in Mahoning, Columbiana, and Trumbull counties. 
Although Donna was the heart and soul of the Yellow Brick Place, her family and the volunteer staff that she left behind are deeply devoted to carrying on her legacy. Much of its income relies on two major fundraising events—a fashion show and a golf outing.
On Sunday, March 18, Yellow Brick Place will hold the Fashion Show and Brunch at the Avion Banquet Center, where we will honor Donna’s memory and her contributions. The event will include remarks by Donna’s daughter, Courtney Detwiler Stasko, fashions by Chico’s and The Children’s Loft, a basket raffle, 50/50 drawing, and designer purse and specialties raffle. The doors will open at 10:30 and the program begins at 11:30.
