Millie Simonelli, Bristol
Millie worked as a nurse at the Rhode Island Veterans’ Home and Desilets Nursing Home in Warren. She shared her passion for travel with her family and friends. She will be remembered as a generous and strong woman, known for her great Italian cooking, love of animals, abundance of wisdom, and quick laugh.
She leaves a daughter, Beverly Sweeney (Michael) of Florida. She was the loving grandmother to Debra Medeiros, Donna Skelton (Larry), Bevi Blouin (K.C), Vicky White and Jay Caetano (Sandy), great-grandmother to Jennifer, Bonnie, and Laurie, Neil, Connor, Seamus, Graham, Damien and Mia; and great-great grandmother to Tyler, Alex and Jacob.

Carmine Carraturo, and is survived by her siblings Theresa Martel, John Carraturo Jr. (Carol), Dorothy Johnson and Robert Carraturo; and her sister-in-law, Agnes Carraturo.
