Mary T. (DeAngelis) Gianardi, 96, of Ives Road in Potowomut, died Monday, March 18, with her devoted family by her side. She was the loving wife of the late Joseph B. Gianardi.
She was born in Providence, daughter of the late Albert and Theresa (Mainella) DeAngelis and sister of the late Rose Collins and Albert L. DeAngelis. She is survived by her daughter Janice M. Bucci – with whom she had lived in later years – and grandchildren Joseph A. Bucci and his wife Theresa, and Judi M. Robinson and her husband John A.
