Posted

Catherine La Fazia, 83, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, at her home, with her loving family at her side.

Born in Warren, R.I., Catherine was the daughter of the late Joseph and Genoveva (DiSpirito) Natal.

Catherine enjoyed 61 years of marriage with her loving husband, Dr. Joseph K. La Fazia. Catherine devoted her life to God, to her husband and to her children. She served as an intercessor — in constant prayer for those around her. Catherine was also an accomplished artist.

In addition to Joseph her husband, Catherine leaves behind five children, Aja Butler of Bristol, R.I., Timothy La Fazia (Maryellen) of San Diego, Calif., Jayne Halpin of Bristol, R.I., Gina Bernier (John) of Barrington, R.I., and Amy Kneath (Thomas) of Bristol, R.I. Her memory will also live on through her 13 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and all those whom she came in contact with.

In her passing Catherine is reunited with her son, Michael LaFazia, and her siblings, Tony Natal, Mary Melucci, Armando Melucci, Ester Bush, and Alfredo Melucci.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019, at 11 a.m. in St. Patrick Church, 244 Smith St., Providence. Burial will follow in St. Alexander’s Cemetery, Warren. Visiting hours will be held Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m. in Sansone Funeral Home, 192 Wood St., Bristol. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hope Hospice, 1085 N. Main Street, Providence.
