Upon his retirement, they settled in Tiverton, R.I. She enjoyed life and family, also gardening, reading and swimming at the "Y".  Her most prized accomplishments were those of wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She leaves two children, Susan and Cindy, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by two sons, Michael and Peter, seven brothers and two sisters. Private arrangements were with the Pocasset Memorial Funeral Home, 462 Main Rd, Tiverton, RI.  www.almeida-pocasset.com for on line guest book.
